Sporting Kansas City and the Montreal Impact are both eying the top spot in the MLS Eastern Conference and tonight’s match-up at Sporting Park will offer us some evidence of just which of them is the more likely challenger to fellow East powers Houston and the New York Red Bulls.
The Red Bulls will look to hold onto the top spot in the East with a win vs. the Vancouver Whitecaps. If they stumble they could open the door for the Impact if Montreal can record a win on the road.
The post-Chelis era begins for Chivas USA against a Seattle Sounders team that will be eager to erase the memories of a bad week that included a shellacking vs. the Los Angeles Galaxy and a shock U.S. Open Cup exit.
