A loaded slate of eight matches fills up the Major League Soccer schedule today, with two top match-ups serving as the headliners of the day.
Sporting Kansas City and Real Salt Lake square off in a battle of conference leaders. Boasting a combined 10-1 record, Sporting KC and RSL have been the class of the league this season and should provide an entertaining and high-quality match.
In New Jersey, the high-flying New York Red Bulls take on the fast-starting San Jose Earthquakes in another quality showdown. One that features the league's three leading goal scorers. Thierry Henry and Kenny Cooper will try to break down a tough San Jose defense, while Chris Wondolowski looks to torch a short-handed Red Bulls defense.
