The second legs of the Eastern Conference semifinals may be on tap, but those are not the only matches American soccer fans will be watching today.
There are a bevy of quality afternoon games before the MLS postseason action resumes, including Chelsea vs. Schalke 04 and Borussia Dortmund vs. Arsenal in the UEFA Champions League. One of the day’s most intriguing matches will take place in Barcelona, as the Spanish giants host AC Milan in a battle of the top two teams in Group H of the competition.
The midday fixtures will be followed by two all-or-nothing MLS matches. The New York Red Bulls host the Houston Dynamo in a series that is level after a 2-2 draw on Sunday, and Sporting Kansas City will try and overcome a 2-1 deficit at home against the New England Revolution to avoid an early playoff exit.
