2007 SuperLiga - Houston looking for payback against Pachuca

Pachuca vs. Houston Dynamo
10pm ET/7pm PT - Houston, Tx
TV: TeleFutura
Internet: Live on MLStv or SuperLiga website

The path is simple, win two games and get a million dollars. As if the budding rivalry between two of the best sides in Concacaf wasn't enough to get the players moving, I'm guessing the amount of money at stake will be. When these two faced off earlier this year, it was a back and forth that really could have ended up any which way, but with Houston in the middle of their season and playing at home, they have to have the upper hand here.

The Dynamo have beat themselves over the last two weeks in MLS play, so they need to come out calm and get some shots on goal right away. Pachuca is a smart team that knows how to wait for their chances however by forcing them to sit a step or two back, Houston can very much limit those chances.

Houston will need to keep an eye on Márquez Lugo because he is amazing at finding space and popping in shots, but more then anything else, they need to find a goal scorer of their own. This team is just not finding net like they once did. Dwayne De Rosario is having one of his worst year's to date and Brian Ching isn't getting the balls in that he needs to smack home, which means it might come down to Stuart Holden or Joseph Ngwenya to be the hero.

In the end, Houston should be able to pull this off, but it is going to be a very difficult 90 (or 120) minutes.

Predictions: Me Pachuca 0-1 HD, Wife Pachuca 1-2 HD

Is Dwayne DR suffering from a Sampson complex this year? He cuts his hair and much of his juice seems to have left him.

...And the chip shot fails again in a big game. Epic. Tragic. Shades of Zidane without the headbutt.
