The MLS pre-season friendlies continue this week to see the Houston Dynamo play host to Toronto FC at the BBVA Compass Stadium on Wednesday.

The visitors head into the game on a three-match winning streak and will look to keep the juggernaut rolling as they prepare for the regular season.

Houston Dynamo were sent crashing back down to earth in the MLS pre-season as they lost 4-0 at the hands of Austin FC on Sunday.

Before that, they were on a three-game unbeaten run, claiming two wins and one draw in that time.

Houston Dynamo will now look back to winning ways as they gradually draw the curtains on their pre-season.

Meanwhile, Toronto FC continued their blistering run of results as they saw off a dogged Chicago Fireside 1-0 last time out.

They have now won each of their last three games on the spin, scoring five goals and conceding two since a 5-4 defeat against LA Galaxy on January 29.

Toronto FC finished bottom but one in the Eastern Conference last season and will hope their fine pre-season run can serve as a springboard for an improved 2021-22 MLS campaign.

Houston Dynamo vs Toronto FC Head-To-Head

With eight wins from the last 23 meetings between the sides, Houston Dynamo boasts a superior record in the history of this fixture. Toronto FC has picked up five wins in that time, while ten games have ended in draws.
