A pair of key conference clashes provide a special Sunday night treat for MLS fans as the LA Galaxy play host to red-hot FC Dallas (7pm, NBC Sports), and Sporting Kansas City put first place in the East on the line against the New York Red Bulls (9pm, ESPN2).
FC Dallas are charging fast up the Western Conference standings, winners of three straight to move within five points of Vancouver for the fifth and final playoff spot in the West. David Ferreira has been in outstanding form lately and will look to cause problems for a tough LA defense. The Galaxy will be without Landon Doovan, who is still recovering from a hamstring strain.
In the nightcap, Sporting KC looks to make it a 4-0 month of August with a win against a Red Bulls side that can move into first place with a victory. Thierry Henry is missing the match after the recent birth of his son, but New York will still feature Tim Cahill, Sebastien LeToux and Kenny Cooper.
