Major League Soccer’s first half of the season wraps up with two matches tonight before the league takes a two-week break during the World Cup group-stage.
Leading off the evening is an Eastern Conference showdown between two teams at opposite spectrums of the standings. Third-place D.C. United travel up north to face the Montreal Impact (7:30pm, MLS Direct Kick/MLS Live), knowing that D.C. United could take sole-possession of first place in the Eastern Conference with a win.
Finishing off the evening, the jump-started Portland Timbers look to take their positive momentum into the mid-season break when they host a weakened FC Dallas (10pm, ESPN2/ESPN Deportes) club at Providence Park. The Timbers have won three of their last four games behind the great work of forward Fanendo Adi, who has scored four goals and provided two assists since joining the team in May.
With the World Cup beginning on Thursday, Wednesday will be the last night to enjoy any MLS action before it disappears for two weeks.
