Lost in the shadow of the Confederations Cup (at least on SBI) has been the third-annual SuperLiga Tournament. We have largely ignored the MLS vs. Mexico competition and while we've been asleep at the wheel some MLS teams have had good showings vs. their neighbors to the south, with MLS holding a 2-1-1 record against the Mexican clubs.
The Chicago Fire is leading the competition with a 2-0 record, while New England stands at 1-0-1. Kansas City has ties in both of its meetings while Chivas USA stands winless at 0-2.
We will have four inter-league match-ups this weekend that should go a long way in establishing which league will wind up with bragging rights. Here is the weekend SuperLiga schedule:
Chicago Fire vs. Tigres UNAL at Toyota Park (8pm, Telefutura)
Chivas USA vs. San Luis at Home Depot Center (10pm, Telefutura)
New England Revolution vs. Atlas at Gillette Stadium (4:30 pm, Telefutura)
Kansas City Wizards vs. Santos Laguna at Community American Ballpark in St. Louis (6:30pm, Telefutura)
If you don't have Telefutura, or are away from your TV for these matches, you can also watch them on the SuperLiga website.
Have you been following SuperLiga? Has the action been as exciting as in year's past, or do you think this year's version isn't up to par? Too distracted by Confederations Cup to notice?
