This is the second meeting of the season and Houston looks to claim the season series after earning a 2-1 victory over the ‘Caps on March 12. Darwin Quintero finished with a brace following service from Ferreira, Coco Carrasquilla and Corey Baird. Houston claimed the series in 2021 with a 1-0-2 record.
