Tonight the Houston Dynamo and the Los Angeles Galaxy will square off to decide the champion of MLS in the 16th edition of the MLS Cup. While one team relies on dynamic set pieces and the other leans on their star power to move the ball, this game should be full of drama and good football as the MLS season comes to a close.
Also, whomever wins the Cup this will make for title No. 3 for either franchise. Per PPaul Carr of ESPN Stats & Information:
Either Houston or Los Angeles will join D.C. United as the only franchises with three MLS titles. United has won four crowns, most recently in 2004. Either Bruce Arena or Dominic Kinnear will become the first coach to win three MLS titles. Arena would also join Sigi Schmid, who is the only coach to win MLS championships with two different clubs. Schmid won with Los Angeles in 2002 and Columbus in 2008. Arena won his two titles with D.C. United.
