MLS Weekend Matchups

Soccer Matchups

 

Friday, September 11

New York Red Bulls vs. Chicago Fire

The Red Bulls continue their march towards the top spot in the Eastern conference with wins in four of their last six matches. They should handle the lowly Chicago Fire with ease at home.

Winner: New York Red Bulls

Confidence Rating: 90%

 

Saturday, September 12

Philadelphia Union vs. Columbus Crew SC

The Union’s shock win at San Jose last week gives them a much-needed confidence boost as they host the Crew. However, Columbus’ high-octane attack should have league-leading goal scorer Kei Kamara back, making them the favorites. But be cautious of the Union.

Winner: Columbus Crew SC

Confidence Rating: 60%

Houston Dynamo vs. Real Salt Lake

Both teams are having dismal seasons so far and both enter with just two wins in their last six matches. We give the slight edge to the Dynamo being at home.

Winner: Houston Dynamo

Confidence Rating: 55%

FC Dallas vs. New York City FC

Dallas has won back-to-back matches entering their matchup with NYCFC. They should have Fabian Castillo and Tesho Akindele back in the fold making them the clear favorites at home against the struggling expansion team.

Winner: FC Dallas

Confidence Rating: 75%

Colorado Rapids vs. DC United

Eastern Conference leading DC United travel to Colorado to take on the Rapids and should win easily against the struggling Rapids. The pressure will be on DC as the Red Bulls are just lurking two points behind in the standings. Expect them to come out trying to prove a point.

Winner: DC United

Confidence Rating: 80%

LA Galaxy vs. Montreal Impact

Despite Didier Drogba’s hat trick in his first-ever MLS start, expect the defending MLS Cup champion LA Galaxy to roll over the Impact at home. The star-studded Galaxy boasts an incredible attacking lineup which is nearly unbeatable at the StubHub Center.

Winner: LA Galaxy

Confidence Rating: 85%

San Jose Earthquakes vs. Seattle Sounders

The Quakes had their four-match win streak snapped last week, while the Sounders are getting all of the star players back from injury. We expect Seattle to go to San Jose and come out victorious with Clint Dempsey and Obafemi Martins up to their old tricks once again.

Winner: Seattle Sounders

Confidence Rating: 75%

 

Sunday, September 13

Toronto FC vs. New England Revolution

Perhaps the most intriguing matchup of the week will take place in Toronto when TFC hosts the Revs. This one is extremely tough to predict as both sides have tons of talent. However, with Sebastian Giovinco still an injury doubt, we have to lean towards the Revs.

Winner: New England Revolution

Confidence Rating: 51%

Orlando City vs. Sporting Kansas City

It’s been a terrible run of form lately for Orlando with just one win in their last eight matches. SKC hasn’t been much better as they’re currently riding a three-match losing streak of their own. Sporting boasts more talent and experience. We believe they’ll pull off the road win and get back on track.

Winner: Sporting Kansas City

Confidence Rating: 60%
