  • Houston is one result from equaling Major League Soccer's all-time home unbeaten run. Real Salt Lake went 34 games without losing at home in the regular season from 2009-2011.

  • Chris Wondolowski, who tied the MLS record with 27 goals last season, scored his second of 2013 against the Seattle Sounders last week.

  • When the 'Quakes returned to the league in 2008, these team split the season series for the first four years.

  • Last year, however, Houston edged the matchup. It has won the last two games against San Jose.

  • The Dynamo migrated from San Jose in 2006, bringing with it Brian Ching, Brad Davis, Ricardo Clark, as well as coach Dominic Kinnear and assistant Wade Barrett.
