The Colorado Rapids will put their nine-match unbeaten streak on the line at Sporting Park as they take on a struggling but still dangerous Sporting Kansas City side in the night’s top match-up (8:30pm).
U.S. Men’s National Team call-ups Graham Zusi and Matt Besler will lead a Sporting KC that will look to snap out of a funk that has seen KC lose four of five matches.
Rivalries are the other of the evening, with East rivals D.C. United and the New York Red Bulls clashing at Red Bull Arena (8pm, NBC Sports), while the Los Angeles Galaxy look to make it three wins in a row with a victory against the San Jose Earthquakes in the California Clasico (10pm).
About 10 days before he is expected to lead the U.S. Men’s National Team against Mexico at Crew Stadium, Clint Dempsey will be in Columbus leading the Seattle Sounders against the Crew (7:30pm). Seattle has won four of five and could jump as high as second in the West with a win and some other results around the league.
At PPL Park, the Montreal Impact will look to make it three wins in a row when they face the Philadelphia Union (7:30pm). The Union will be eager to erase the memories of last week’s 5-1 loss to New England, and will be without suspended defender Amobi Okugo as they try to contain Italian striker Marco DiVaio.
