MLS powers Sporting Kansas City and the Los Angeles Galaxy square off tonight in an inter-conference clash that could be a preview of the 2013 MLS Cup Final.
Sporting KC have made the cross-country trek to Los Angeles after their mid-week win vs. the New York Red Bulls, and they bring with them a five-match unbeaten streak and shutout streak that has them looking like the toughest team in the league.
The Los Angeles Galaxy haven’t quite hit their full stride yet, but with the CONCACAF Champions League behind them and some injury issues clearing up, we could be ready to see the Galaxy play their best soccer of the season tonight.
The New York-Boston sports rivalry has taken a backseat amid the recent tragedy in Boston, but the display of brotherhood we are expected to see before kickoff between the New York Red Bulls and New England Revolution will make way for what should be a physical battle between two teams in dire need of a win.
No team in the league needs a win more than the Seattle Sounders. The lone remaining winless team in the league, the Sounders are as healthier than they have been all season and should pose a real challenge for a Colorado Rapids team hitting a good run of results.
