Despite a largely even match at BBVA Compass Stadium, the final whistle reflected a result of opposites: The Houston Dynamo broke the MLS record for the longest unbeaten streak at home, while the Chicago Fire were on the losing end for the fourth time in six matches this season.

Houston's winner was scored by winger Brad Davis in the 81st minute following a set piece.

By now we have all heard about the 34 match unbeaten streak at home that the Dynamo boast. It's an eye opening feat to be sure, and it will make Chicago's chances for even a point much tougher than last week. The team did find some much needed relief and confidence from last Sunday's win, and hopefully it spills over into today.

Fascinating, isn't it, this game? Soccer is so many things simultaneously that it's difficult to codify even a representative slice of it: It is business, and culture, and tribalism, and the use of culture by business to evoke feelings of tribalism. It is shape and space and group intention.

After defeating the New York Red Bulls last weekend, April is already turning out to be a better month for the Chicago Fire than March. The Fire played their best game of this young MLS season and were able to triple their goal output for the season by winning against New York 3-1. Logan Pause came back from injury to anchor the midfield and Joel Lindpere played his best game as a Fire player after being slotted on the wing in place of Dilly Duka who was still out due to injury.

It's going to be a tall task this week for the Men in Red. The Dynamo are unbeaten at home in the last 34 games. The difference between a Houston team at home and on the road is as different as night and day. While BBVA only opened last year, it hasn't made things any easier for visiting teams. So it is with this in mind that I contacted Stephen Eastepp over at Dynamo Theory to get intel ahead of the match.

The Chicago Fire finally managed to get their first win of the season. These three points that the team earned on Sunday lifts them out of last place in the conference thanks to goals for now being the tie breaker in the standings. Matter of fact, the Fire managed to score just as many goals in Sunday's game as the two teams below them (New England and DC United) have scored all season combined.

Up until the Fire’s win over New York last Sunday, much of the talk among Fire fans has been about the team’s need for a true goal-scoring forward. Although Maicon Santos’ brace in the 3-1 victory over the Red Bulls means that he is now on pace to score 13.6 goals this season, it seems unlikely that this issue has been completely resolved.

BRIDGEVIEW --- Getting his first MLS start Sunday afternoon, second-year defender Hunter Jumper made a smooth transition into the side -- and put in a solid performance to boot.

Coming in for the injured Gonzalo Segares -- a late scratch after picking up a right hamstring injury Friday -- Jumper slotted in at left back and assisted the Chicago Fire's opening goal in the 3-1 victory over New York.

Fortunately for Fire fans Chicago is home to a number of bars and pubs devoted to airing soccer from Chicago and around the world where we can lick the grease off our fingers and down a few pints as we watch. The challenge created by having so many inviting places to watch a match is that it inadvertently decreases the exposure of soccer in other pubs and bars around the city and also decreases the profile of soccer compared to other sports in the market.

BRIDGEVIEW - Redemption and making up for one's mistakes can be a good thing, and for Daniel Paladini, Sunday's 3-1 victory over New York was pretty sweet.

"I feel I let the guys down [the past two games]," Paladini said of missed chances in previous weeks. "I had wide open opportunities against Kansas City and against Chivas.

BRIDGEVIEW - Struggling to find the back of the net through the first four fixtures of the 2013 MLS season, the Chicago Fire put three past the visiting New York Red Bulls to earn the team's first win of the season with a 3-1 victory Sunday afternoon.

A first half equalizer from Daniel Paladini and a second half brace from Maicon Santos helped give the Fire (1-3-1, 4 points) their first win of the season after falling behind in the 17th minute following a Jamison Olave volley.

The Men in Red are still not able to get fully healthy, and this should create some interesting lineup juggling for Frank Klopas today. The Fire need a win (and some goals) in the worst way. It's going to be harder with yet another different lineup again this week. It figures to be a nice day in Bridgeview, with temps pushing 60 degrees.

After losing to Chivas USA in week 4, the Fire came out of the bye week in week 5 not having to play an MLS game. This meant they could not lose another league game, however they did drop a 1-0 friendly to NASL side Minnesota United FC. Even in a friendly against a lower league team, the Fire could not find their offense.
