It is rivalry week in Major League Soccer this week, as many of the league’s most intense match-ups are on the schedule, led by the Seattle Sounders’ visit to take on the Portland Timbers.
The Timbers are still searching for their first win of the 2014 season as they take on the same Seattle side they eliminated from the MLS playoffs last year.
In Texas, Western Conference-leading FC Dallas take on the Houston Dynamo in a clash of teams off to solid starts in 2014. The Dynamo suffered a tough road loss in Vancouver last week, but return home to BBVA Compass Stadium, where they will look to hand FC Dallas their first win of the season.
Sporting Kansas City plays host to Real Salt Lake in a rematch of the 2013 MLS Cup Final. Both teams have multiple players coming off international duty with the U.S. Men’s National Team, and both teams head into the match unbeaten.
