FC Cincinnati vs Houston Dynamo Match Preview
Cincinnati are finding life in MLS perhaps even tougher than expected – but they have one of their more winnable home matches this weekend.
In their first season with an MLS franchise, Cincinnati are tailed off at the bottom of the standings having suffered a dreadful run of 11 defeats in their last 12 matches following a promising start.
Head coach Alan Koch has lost his job and for the moment Yoann Damet, who is only 29, is in charge on an interim basis until a new manager is appointed. Among the leading contenders is former Newcastle United, Crystal Palace and West Ham boss Alan Pardew.
The one bright spot for Cincinnati since mid-April has been a 2-1 home win over Montreal and, although they have taken some terrible thrashings on the road, they have been more competitive at the Nippert Stadium – and the game with Houston could be another example.
Dynamo have been really poor on their travels since opening their away fixtures with a 4-1 win in Colorado, losing six in a row subsequently and struggling to score goals.
The Texan side cannot be trusted to triumph in Ohio despite their opponents’ struggles and the draw looks the most sensible outcome to back here due to a lack of confidence in either team – albeit Houston are still in a position to qualify for the end-of-season play-offs.
