The Houston Dynamo take to the road this weekend as they face Vancouver Whitecaps FC at BC Place on Saturday at 5 p.m. CT (4:30 p.m. pregame; ROOT SPORTS). The two teams have already met once in 2016, also in Vancouver on March 23.
On that day, the Dynamo got off 17 shots but fell 1-0 on a 23rd minute penalty kick by Pedro Morales. Whitecaps forward Masato Kudo—who earned the penalty—was suspended after the match by the MLS Disciplinary Committee for embellishment on that play.
Vancouver (6-6-2, 20 points) put together a run of three straight wins to start May, but most recently dropped a 4-2 result in Portland to the Timbers. Morales leads the team with six goals and three assists, but midfielder Christian Bolaños (4 goals, 2 assists), forward Blas Perez (2 goals, 1 assist) and defender Kendall Waston will miss the match due to international duty.
