With Tuesday's draw against the Columbus Crew, the Houston Dynamo now have faced every other team in MLS. However, they've only managed to defeat 4 of their 11 rivals. Chivas USA has 4 more teams to beat, while Real Salt Lake has 5 more to go.
In the first meetings between RSL and their opponents, Real only defeated the opponent at the first time of asking once. That's a mark of 1-11, the worst in the league's history. It's no surprise that the Los Angeles Galaxy are first at 10-4.
Percentage of opponents beaten in first meeting
Of the teams not beaten by CHV/HOU/RSL, the one with the longest streak so far is CHV-NY, which will go on to at least next year (this is all regular season stuff only). Chivas have yet to beat the Red Bulls in four meetings. They have a long way to go until they set a record, though. In four seasons, the Tampa Bay Mutiny never defeated the Chicago Fire. That's a total of 12 matches.
