Sporting Kansas City and the Houston Dynamo have one of the better rivalries in MLS even though it doesn’t get as much attention as some others, and the traditional Eastern Conference powers face off again tonight (8:30pm, MLS Live) in the evening’s marquee match-up in MLS.
The Dynamo are at BBVA Compass Stadium tonight with a chance to close the gap on Sporting KC for second place in the East with a win. Sporting KC needs a victory to keep pressure on the New York Red Bulls for first place.
The evening’s other two matches feature Western Conference foes, as the Seattle Sounders take on the Vancouver Whitecaps at CenturyLink Field (10pm, MLS Live). The Sounders can move a step closer to the top spot in the West, and the Supporters Shield race, with a win against a Whitecaps side that has seen its playoff hopes all but disappear. Anything but a win will eliminate the Whitecaps from post-season consideration.
The evening’s final match features the San Jose Earthquakes playing host the Colorado Rapids at Buck Shaw Field (10:30pm, MLS Live). Both teams are missing multiple players to international call-ups, but the pressure is on San Jose to secure a win to put pressure on the Rapids for fifth place in the West.
