Thursday Night Soccer - New York vs. Houston

New York Red Bull (6-4-3) vs. Houston Dynamo (7-5-2)
8pm ET/5pm PT

Can New York stop the leaking of goals? Will Houston's offense explode? These two teams are on opposite sides of the see-saw as New York has been bombing of late and conceding tons of goals in the process while Houston is coming off a month were they went 5-0-1and reasserted themselves as one of the big teams in the West. The interesting thing is the Dynamo has done most of their best work with a number of their starters off on international duty.

New York is still looking shaky on the backline which should give Ching and company plenty of chances. However, with Brad Davis out due to injury, they might have some trouble shifting around their midfield.

The Red Bulls have been able to save themselves over the last month thanks to the excellent work of their offense, however if the Crew found a way to shut them down, the Dynamo should be able to do the same.

Predictions: Me NY 1-3 HD, Wife NY 0-2 HD
