As was the case last year, both of these sides have underwhelmed so far in 2021. The Whitecaps are stuck down in 12th in the Western Conference with only FC Dallas below them after 13 games, while the Dynamo are three points and three places ahead.
There are one and four-point gaps separating these respective sides from the playoff places so both Vancouver and Houston — meeting for the second time this season after a 2-1 win for the Dynamo in May — are in desperate need of the points here.
