Robbie Rogers is set to make his Los Angeles Galaxy debut tonight as the Galaxy face red-hot Seattle in the most high-profile match of the day in Major League Soccer.
Three matches fill the league schedule today, starting with the Eastern Conference rivalry clash between Sporting Kansas City and the Houston Dynamo. Sporting KC beat the Dynamo at BBVA Compass Stadium two weeks ago, snapping their record home unbeaten streak while also halting the Dynamo’s recent dominance over Sporting. Today, the Dynamo will be without starting centerbacks Jermaine Taylor (injured) and Bobby Boswell (suspended) as Dom Kinnear’s men try to slow down a Sporting side looking to close the gap on first-place New York.
The Red Bulls are also in action today, taking on the Columbus Crew as they try to extend their unbeaten streak to seven matches. The Red Bulls defense has tightened up in recent weeks, and will look to stifle a Crew attack that has been struggling to generate goals in recent weeks.
The match of the day takes place at Home Depot Center, where the struggling Galaxy take on a Sounders side unbeaten in six matches. Eddie Johnson and Omar Gonzalez are set to be teammates on the U.S. Men’s National Team next week, but tonight they will face off in a match-up of the league’s best.
