Notes:

  • The winner of the season series between these two teams gets an actual, real-life cannon. (Yes, it actually fires.)
  • Dallas can claim El Capitán for a third consecutive season with a win on Friday, having taken the first game of the 2015 series in a memorable 4-1 thrashing of Houston at BBVA Compass Stadium.
  • The series has seen plenty of dramatic goals and physical moments, including a heated playoff series in 2007 and several encounters in the US Open Cup. The most notorious moment of the rivalry was Clark’s kicking of FC Dallas forward Carlos Ruiz in a 2007 encounter that resulted in a red card to both players and a nine-game suspension for the Dynamo midfielder.
