MLS Match Week 10: SBI Live Commentary

MLSLogo2013

By IVES GALARCEP

A quartet of Mother’s Day offerings in Major League Soccer help round out what has already been an exciting day in the world of soccer.

The Portland Timbers and LA Galaxy renew acquaintances in the day’s first match, as Caleb Porter and Bruce Arena match wits at Providence Park (2:30pm, NBC Sports). The Timbers posted their first win of 2014 last weekend and will look to build on that by beating a Galaxy team they had the better of in 2013.

The Colorado Rapids take on struggling Chivas USA in the day’s next MLS match (3pm, MLS Direct Kick) as Pablo Mastroeni’s side try to pitch a third straight shutout by knocking off a Chivas USA side winless in eight.

The New England Revolution play host to the Seattle Sounders in the day’s best match-up (6pm, MLS Direct Kick) as Clint Dempsey faces the Revs for the first time. New England is unbeaten in four (3-0-1) and will look to halt Seattle’s torrid streak of five straight wins.

The day’s final offering features the Houston Dynamo playing host to unbeaten Real Salt Lake (7pm, MLS Direct Kick). The Dynamo have won two straight and will try to use their home-field advantage against an RSL side that has been playing some of the best soccer in the league.

  1. RB says:

    SnoClasico-type conditions in Colorado…

  2. Fredo says:

    Come on Baggio, we need better. Go Galaxy!

  3. Fredo says:

    Stressful first half. So close. As Bruce says, we need to “score a goal.”

  4. Bach's Thumb says:

    Kyle Martino is god awful.

  5. Bach's Thumb says:

    Kah missed the ball entirely. That’s a penalty, pure and simple.

  6. Bach's Thumb says:

    MLS refereeing just decided another game.

    Junihno is in on goal on the fast break, Kah chases him down from behind and shoves him over. No foul. No red. Nothing. That was really bad officiating.

    Robbie Keane and Arenas at midfield screaming at official after the game.

    • AMP says:

      Confounding. Besides the shove being clear as day, the ref must have assumed that Juninho dove, on a breakaway, outside the box, with Lando coming up on his right. Made no sense, really bad.

  7. JayAre says:

    Only MLS refs won’t call a clear tackle from behind a penalty.

  8. Good Jeremy says:

    How could he admit that the offensive player touched it last without giving a penalty? What else could it possible be when the offensive player has his legs taken out from behind and still gets the last touch?

  9. Good Jeremy says:

    No Gonzo today… maybe the injury last week was more than LA initially admitted.

  10. Lil' Zeke says:

    Entertaining game! Donnybrook looks ready

  11. reignman says:

    Sounders are dominating this game early, NE goalie with some very quality saves in the first five minutes

    • reignman says:

      And Seattle has paid for being wasteful, NE have come into the game and gotten a goal.

      • reignman says:

        And again Seattle has been wasteful and conceded again. Looks like they are finally going to be punished for their questionable defending that they’ve been getting away with.

  12. John says:

    Well didn’t see this score line coming

    • John says:

      Chad Marshall needs to be on national team

    • reignman says:

      The scoreline a bit deceptive, NE has been really good at finishing chances, Seattle has been awful at it. That said Seattle have looked terrible at the back, need to figure some things out. Good on NE, glad to see Fagundez break out of his funk as well, hope he gets going even more, great player

  13. AMP says:

    So many promising young players on NE.

    Fagundez, please choose us.

    • STX81 says:

      It’s been reported that he is working towards US citizenship.

      • reignman says:

        He’s still a couple of years away from citizenship at this point, Uruguay is deep though so they may not be looking at him yet.

  14. JayAre says:

    Seattle just can’t defend the counter attack how do you leave your defenders exposed like that time after time.

  15. Bach's Thumb says:

    Yedlin should not come near the USMNT. Only if he buys a ticket.
