This is a rematch of the 2011 MLS Cup where Los Angeles defeated the Dynamo 1-0 at the Home Depot Center. This season, both the Dynamo and Galaxy had to enter the playoffs through the "play-in" game as the Galaxy were the 4 seed in the Western Conference with 54 points and the Dynamo were the 5 seed in the Eastern Conference with 53 points. The Galaxy, by virtue of having more regular season points than the Dynamo are hosting the game, and this season they were 10-6-1 at home; however, they started 2-4-1 at home and have been very good as the season has progessed. Houston ended the year with 53 points and was 3-9-5 on the road. Thus far in the playoffs, the Galaxy are 1-1-1 at home and the Dynamo are 1-1-1 on the road. The winner of this game wins the MLS Cup and will also earn a top seed in the CONCACAF Champion's League tournament. If the game ends in a tie, there will be a 30-minute mini game played to determine the winner. If the mini-game ends in a tie, there will be a penalty shootout to decided who is declared champion of MLS. The Dynamo and Galaxy have met once this season. In late May the Dynamo hosted the Galaxy and won the match 2-1 on a Brad Davis to Andre Hainault header in the 57th minute. This was a come-from-behind win for the Dynamo as Edson Buddle started the scoring in the 10th minute. Highlights of the game. No Trolling. No Flaming. This is not a rivalries thread or forum.
