Playoff rivals just a few years ago, the Houston Dynamo and Montréal Impact meet for the only time this season when the clubs face off Saturday evening at BBVA Compass Stadium. Both teams come into the game sitting at the foot of their respective conferences. The Dynamo are winless in their last four matches following a season-opening win, coming off a 1-0 defeat at Seattle Sounders FC. The Impact are winless in their three league matches, their last MLS game a 2-2 home draw with Orlando City SC that preceded their historic CONCACAF Champions League advancement.

  • The Dynamo were shut out for a third time in five matches in their 1-0 loss at Seattle Sounders FC on Saturday; they still have yet to allow more than one goal in any game this season. The Dynamo have now not scored in their last 259 minutes, currently the fourth-longest goalless drought in MLS.
  • The Impact will be playing their first league match since March 28 with the visit to Houston. They are still looking for a first league win, gaining their first point with their first goals in MLS play in a 2-2 draw at Orlando City SC last time out.
  • The visiting team has never won in the three-year history of the series between the clubs. The road team has come away with points just once – after a 1-1 draw at BBVA Compass Stadium in 2011.
  • The Dynamo have won the last four meetings between the teams in Houston in all competitions, including in the Knockout Round of the MLS Cup Playoffs in 2013. The Impact have won all four meetings all-time in Montréal.
