Well lets see if I can get this one a little more accurate then my last preview blog post. Sporting is coming off a huge come from behind win in Montreal and this coming up match is sure to be a big one as the Dynamo was the team that knocked Sporting out of last year's playoffs and kept them from going to the final against the LA Galaxy. Most of the players are saying that they are not looking for revenge, but I would like to think that they would be looking to prove that they are one of the top teams in the MLS.
Sporting is getting to that point in the season where they really have to get all the little slip ups and errors past them and have to just about be flawless in order to prove themselves and ensure that they get into the playoffs. I would like to think that this would be the match to do that, but really I think that the match against the Fire where they did everything right and still didn't win and then followed it up with a bad start against Montreal but then turned it around and came out of Montreal with what almost seemed like an easy three points.
I really expect Sporting to come out much like they have most of the season, but look at them to get into a passing groove very early and testing the Dynamo's back line and goal keeper who as a team have started doing better lately but for the most part have struggled this season and I look at this game to be a very dominating game much like it was against Chicago, but hopefully Peter Vermes has realized what needs to be done on the defensive end of the field as Jimmy Nielsen can only come up big so much and he has done more than his share this season and I only see him continuing to do it but the defense not taking games off will really help, it doesn't matter what type of game they are playing or how good the team is or isn't.
