There are just four matches on the MLS schedule tonight, but three of them are battles between teams thick in the playoff race.
The Seattle Sounders will look to move past the disappointment of losing in the U.S. Open Cup Final when they travel to San Jose to take on an Earthquakes side coming off a bye week. San Jose will be looking to extend its lead atop the Western Conference with another win at Buck Shaw Stadium, where the Earthquakes have been especially tough to beat.
Sporting Kansas City will be looking to shake off the hangover from celebrating their U.S. Open Cup Final victory by beating D.C. United at LiveStrong Sporting Park. A victory would propel Sporting KC into first place in the East.
Here is tonight's MLS schedule:
7 p.m. - MLS Live/Direct Kick - Vancouver Whitecaps vs. Real Salt Lake
8:30 p.m. - MLS Live/Direct Kick - Sporting Kansas City vs. D.C. United
9 p.m. - MLS Live/Direct Kick - FC Dallas vs. Colorado Rapids
10:30 p.m. - MLS Live/Direct Kick - San Jose Earthquakes vs. Seattle Sounders
