The Dynamo / Vancouver game is the lone MLS offering of the weekend.
Eddie Robinson and I have the call on Fox Sports Houston at 6 central time.
Here are three thoughts on this match:
1.) PLAY OF RESERVES:
The Dynamo are missing 4 players due to international commitment and the play of subs will be vital tonight.
Warren Creavalle will debut at right back after getting minutes against San Antonio in the Open Cup and Valencia in a “friendly”.
How does he handle the pressure?
2.) HASSLI OR NO HASSLI
Vancouver is chomping at the bit to get going in this one tonight but the complexion of the team changes dramatically with Hassli in or not in the lineup.
With him in they become more powerful for sure, without him it is a more technical set up with the likes of Davide Chumiento and Camilo.
3.) A GOOD START
The Dynamo with new players in the lineup tonight will want to get off to a confident start at BC Place in Vancouver to set the tone for the day on the artificial surface.
Can they produce more chances and produce a goal during the run of the play tonight after settling in?
4.) SOCCER TALK ON RADIO MONDAY AND TUESDAY
