Turning their full attention back to the MLS playoff race following the U.S. Open Cup loss on Tuesday, the Union get an opportunity to pick up three points at home against a team they should beat. Of course the Union may have some tired legs whereas the Dynamo do not, but despite all that this is a very winnable fixture for the Union. And with the Red Bulls playing Seattle Sounders and the Crew playing New England Revolution, three points tonight could give the Union a huge advantage in the playoff race.
