Match preview

Can Austin FC continue their incredibly impressive start to the season?

Last weekend, the Verde and Black won again, this time hammering strugglers Vancouver Whitecaps 3-0 at Q2 Stadium.

It was their two star men who were on target; Maxi Urruti bagging a first half brace before Sebastián Driussi sealed the win later on.

This means Josh Wolff's side have won three in a row, leaving them second in the Western Conference, just two points behind leaders LAFC.

However, four of Austin's five victories this season have come at home, only beating D.C. United on the road so far.

Will that change as they make the short 168 mile journey east across Texas for this Copa Tejas fixture?

This is the second week in a row that Houston Dynamo are facing a Texas derby, but they'll be hoping this one goes better than last Saturday's.

El Naranja faced historic rivals FC Dallas at Toyota Stadium and everything was going to plan when Sebastián Ferreira opened the scoring.

However, Dallas hit back, equalising two minutes from time, before snatching the three points in the third minute of stoppage time.

For Paulo Nagamura's team, this ends their five-match unbeaten run and sees Houston sink down to seventh in the west.

Will this all-Texas affair at PNC Stadium be just as dramatic?
