League leaders Los Angeles FC (LAFC) remain undefeated against Houston Dynamo in all competitive football, winning their only home encounter 4-2. Despite being at their most vulnerable in 2019, with two points from their last three MLS home games, they have every reason to be confident of bouncing back against the poorly travelling Dynamo. A truly staggering +16 goal difference in the 31-45+ minute period has helped LAFC claim 14 half-time leads this league season, each of which have been converted into victory thanks to a league-leading second-half goal difference of +27.
Those are chilling numbers for any visiting side, let alone the worst away side in the MLS. Houston need to hit LAFC early, given the aforementioned first-half stats, but have opened the scoring on the road just three times this season, losing each of the 12 occasions in which they did not. Six of their last eight away MLS losses have been by just a solitary goal and four with half-time deficits, whilst scoring in six of those eight, suggesting they have been giving a reasonable account of themselves despite the results.
