For both teams it was a chance for revenge as both suffered home losses to the other side with Sporting KC's win being the most notable as it was the first road win at BBVA Compass Stadium.
Both sides looked to assert their authority early in a crucial match ahead of the playoffs, with the challenges flying in from the bitter rivals.
Dynamo went on the attack from the very start but Jimmy Nielsen had an incredible night in goal for Sporting Kansas City as he made save after save in a man of the match performance.
Will Bruin gave Dynamo their first chance of the match just 90 seconds in and looked destined to score from close range only for Nielsen to make a vital save.
It was a case of deja vu six minutes in as Will Bruin again found the ball at close range and again Nielsen came up with a point plank save.
From that early burst of attack the match ended up fading as a spectacle with the next chance coming right before half time as Brad Davis saw his free-kick cleared off the line.
The second half was much tighter and much more physical leading to fewer chances than the first half with only one real chance to speak of.
That chance came in the 75th minute as Will Bruin was able to cross for Brad Davis at the back post but he wasn't able to control the ball allowing SKC to clear.
The result leaves both teams in control of their playoff chances, and they will likely meet eachother in the semi-final stage of the Eastern Conference in a two-legged series that will surely be just as hard fought.
