The Dynamo looking to gain a victory against Kansas City


HOUSTON (Friday, Sept. 4, 2020) – The Houston Dynamo close a two-game stretch at BBVA Stadium on Saturday by hosting Sporting Kansas City at 7 p.m. Fans can watch the match live on QuestTexas ch. 55.


Houston look to build on back-to-back victories after a 3-0 triumph on Wednesday against Minnesota United. The Dynamo earned their second clean sheet of the year and first victory at BBVA Stadium under head coach Tab Ramos. Ramos and three Dynamo players were named to the Audi MLS Team of the Week after Wednesday’s effort which saw Houston extend its unbeaten run to four games.

Darwin Quintero gave Houston the lead after he scored against his former club in the 27th minute. His fourth goal of the season was also his third goal in the last two games. The Colombian forward has been key in Houston’s recent run and leads the team in goals and assists with four each. Forward Ariel Lassiter made his debut on Wednesday and scored a brace in his 35-minute shift, the first time a player scored a brace in their Dynamo debut since Brian Ching in the inaugural Dynamo game on April 2, 2006.

Defensively, Marko Maric and the Dynamo backline earned their second clean sheet of the season. Maric finished with four saves, the most in three games. Darwin Ceren played a large role in thwarting the Minnesota offense by leading the team in tackles with four and interceptions with four. Maynor Figueroa kept the ball circulating for the Dynamo by winning possession 14 times throughout the match on Wednesday.

Saturday’s game will be the third meeting between both clubs this season and the first since Aug. 25. The Dynamo earned their first victory of the season that evening courtesy of a brace from Quintero and goals from Alberth Elis, Christian Ramirez and Niko Hanson.

The Dynamo will close Phase 1 on the road as they travel to Colorado on Wednesday and visit Frisco for the second leg of the Texas Derby on Saturday, Sept. 12.
