In the last round, defending champions Los Angeles FC will play Seattle Sounders for the final spot, while the orange squad joins FC Cincinnati and Columbus Crew, who advanced to the Eastern last on Saturday.

With 64% of the possession time, the host team dominated the game’s flow. However, with only four shots on goal from each club, the game was more of a fight than a risky opportunity. Sporting only managed 12 shots while the Dynamo managed 15.

Houston’s left defender scored the game’s lone goal on a corner kick in the 39th minute. Tim Melia was left behind as the defender raced to connect with a strong header on Héctor Herrera’s strike from the right flank.

After receiving heavy criticism for his performance in Qatar 2022, Hector Herrera played the entire 90 minutes and was a decisive element in the match for Dynamo. He controlled the game in the midfield and assisted with the goal.

The Conference Finals are scheduled for this coming Saturday, December 2. At TQL Stadium, home of FC Cincinnati, the top seed and MLS Cup favorite, and the Crew, who finished third in the East, square off in the Eastern Conference Final, which gets underway at 18:30 ET.
