HOUSTON, TEXAS (May 29, 2018) After downing New York City FC by the score of  3-1 at BBVA Compass Stadium on Friday evening, the Houston Dynamo prepare to hit the road for two games. On Wednesday, May 30, the Dynamo, who are currently in fifth place in the Western Conference of Major League with 18 points, will face Real Salt Lake at Rio Tinto Stadium with an 8:30 p.m. CDT start. Real Salt Lake is coming off a 1-0 win over Seattle on Saturday, May 26. Following the Real Salt Lake game, the Dynamo will travel to Montreal to take on the Impact on Saturday, June 2, who are in tenth place in the Eastern Conference with nine points. 

The Dynamo are 5-3-3 in 2017 and have struggled on the road. They are 1-1-3 when away from BBVA Compass Stadium with all their draws coming on the road. This is a hurdle they need to overcome if they are going to continue to get three points per game and rise in the conference standings. Wednesday will be the first time this season Houston has faced Real Salt Lake. The May 26 game will also be the first time they have played Montreal in 2018.

With their win over NYCFC this past Friday, the Dynamo posted their first back-to-back win this season and extended their unbeaten streak to four games. In addition, they achieved two straight games where they had come-from-behind wins and marked their first win over New York City in program history. The win was head coach Wilmer Cabrera's 27th victory in Major League Soccer and his 18th win as the Dynamo head coach.
