Houston • Real Salt Lake has struggled to build momentum in 2017. It will take a reversal of roles to do that on the road at the Houston Dynamo Wednesday night.
On paper, the game is a mismatch with RSL's struggles away from Rio Tinto Stadium (1-5-1). Home teams have scored 15 times in seven away games against RSL, the second most in Major League Soccer. The disparity's led to a league worst minus-12 goal differential.
As bad as RSL's has been on the road, Houston's been equally as good at home. The Dynamo have reigned supreme at BBVA Compass Stadium, sharing the best home record in the league (6-0-1) with the Chicago Fire and scoring a league-best 19 home goals while giving up only six.
