Both teams may be out of the running for this year’s MLS playoffs, but at the very least, there are still bragging rights left in the 2021 Copa Tejas.
Featuring MLS’ three Texan clubs (Austin FC, Houston Dynamo and FC Dallas), the cup will provide some solace in a season that has been disappointing for all involved.
Houston currently have 30 points after 31 matches and will be looking to at least have a strong finish against their cross-state rivals, Austin.
As for Austin, 2021 has been even more dismal with a bottom spot in the Western Conference and only 25 points claimed in 30 matches.
Although they will be hosting the match, Austin might not have much of a chance here.
Internal problems have become public and there seems to be a real lack of motivation.
Houston for the win.

MLS’ 2021 season will be a forgettable one for all three Texan clubs.
Currently occupying the bottom three spots of the Western Conference, neither of the teams will qualify for the upcoming playoffs.
That said, as mentioned earlier, a Copa Tejas title could at least be a last-minute source of motivation as the year comes to a close.
All three teams remain in the running for the cup that will crown a new champion later on this month.
If Austin win their matches remaining against Houston this Sunday and then Dallas later this month, they’ll lift the Copa Tejas.
Nonetheless, it’s difficult to think they may even pull off a draw this weekend…
Manager Josh Wolff has constantly looked exasperated on the sidelines, the defense has been pummeled on a regular basis, and in support, the midfield hasn’t done enough to help.
Through these scenes, they’ve allowed 25 goals in their last 10 games.
It’s an astonishing tally.
Of those 10 games, 50% of them have involved matches in which their opposition have scored three or more goals.
Sadly, if it wasn’t for some incredible saves from goalkeeper Brad Stuver, Austin could have easily allowed more during those matches.
And speaking of, Houston just so happened to be one of those teams with three or more goals against Austin.
We don’t have to go back too far to find a big Copa Tejas win for Houston over Austin.
Last month, the Dynamo were impressive in their 3-0 victory that included a goal in the very first minute.
No matter the fact that Austin had 66% possession, they weren’t able to capitalize on the 15 shots that they had in the game.
Austin ramped up the pressure in the 2nd half but ultimately were left scoreless in the one-sided result.
The match not only conveyed Houston’s ability to churn out a massive result against a rival, but also highlighted Austin’s growing number of problems that continue to this day.
Following a 4-0 loss to the San Jose Earthquakes earlier this week, Wolff was clearly flustered and knackered after the defeat in the post-game press conference.
At one point when a reporter asked him if it looked as if his players were showing signs of quit during the match, Austin’s manager responded by cursing and criticizing the question.
Hoo boy. Josh Wolff getting testy after this one. @Goodman asked if the players have quit, and Wolff called it a “bullshit question.” Oh, and no players made available in the post-match Zoom call. #AustinFC

This obviously isn’t a good sign.
Already disapproved of by countless fans, Wolff’s response said plenty about his tactical and motivational complications that have now become much more public.
There should be patience with the project that kicked off this year, and yet, there should also be serious questions for the manager who seems to have run out of ways to fix things.
