New York Red Bulls vs Philadelphia Union: Preview

Saturday evening sees New York Red Bulls welcome Philadelphia Union to Red Bull Arena. The Eastern Conference rivals are separated by seven points ahead of the tie.

It’s been a very good run of form for the home side. They have won four on the bounce, coming into the game off the back of their 3-1 away win against Atlanta.

That win last time out was made all the more impressive as Jesse Marsch’s side came back from 1-0 to take all three points back to New York. More of the same will be expected from the Red Bulls faithful here.

Philadelphia Union have bounced back. They have won their last two after losing two on the bounce and now is the time for them to find some consistency.

A 4-1 win last time out against RSL was exactly the kind of performance the Union needed to produce having previously won 2-0 against Montreal.

If history is anything to go by, Philadelphia fans can expect a difficult game with a slim chance of taking anything away with them – managing just one win in the all-time series on the road.

Chicago Fire vs LA Galaxy | 2018 MLS Preview and Prediction

Major League Soccer: Chicago Fire vs LA Galaxy

Toyota Park – Saturday, April 14th 2018 – 15:30 ET (20:30 BST)

UK TV Coverage: Live on Sky Sports Football

Chicago Fire vs LA Galaxy: Preview

Saturday afternoon sees Chicago Fire welcome LA Galaxy to Toyota Park. There is plenty of interest in this one, with Bastian Schweinsteiger facing off against former Manchester United teammate Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The home side have picked up after a disappointing start to the 2018 season. Their back-to-back losses have been followed up with a draw and their first win of the campaign.

That 1-0 win came against Crew SC in a hard fought game. It’s not going to be an easy afternoon for Chicago this weekend, as their squad is still riddled with injuries. Much of the same fighting spirit from last weekend is going to be needed.

LA Galaxy are looking to get back to winning ways. They come into this one having lost 2-0 at home against Sporting KC. Despite that loss they still sit third in the Western Conference. It was a tough one to take given how many chance Galaxy created.

Cameras will once again be on Ibrahimovic, who is heading back to fitness and hoping for more involvement here. Both of his appearances have been off the bench, but whether he is ready to start from the off remains to be seen.

There are some questions surrounding The Galaxy defence, who have conceded five goals in their last two games. Given their recent form on the road they cannot afford to give Chicago easy chances.

LA Galaxy’s MLS form: W/L/D/W/L

Key stat: Homesick – LA Galaxy haven’t won the road in their last 11 attempts.

Chicago Fire vs LA Galaxy: Prediction

Chicago Fire 2-2 LA Galaxy – The Fire look like they’re waking up after that sluggish start and are ready to climb the Eastern Conference. There is ground to make up – so a win here would be a more than welcomed result. LA Galaxy are still looking good in the West despite a couple of shaky results. It’s important that they can end a winless run on the road but a score draw looks a more likely outcome this weekend.

Vancouver Whitecaps vs LA Galaxy | 2018 MLS Preview and Prediction

Major League Soccer: Vancouver Whitecaps vs LA Galaxy

BC Place – Saturday, March 24 2018 – 22:00 ET (03:00 BST)

Vancouver Whitecaps vs LA Galaxy: Preview

Vancouver Whitecaps welcome a depleted LA Galaxy side to BC Place on Saturday evening. Both sides come into the game off the back of losses last time out. Zlatan Ibrahimovic joined LA Galaxy on Friday but will not be available this weekend.

The Whitecaps are sitting fourth in the Western Conference. Their 4-1 loss at Atlanta last weekend was a game to forget. Kendall Waston’s red card in the opening 15 minutes changed the course of that tie, leaving his side struggling a man down.

Carl Robinson will be expecting a response from his side. After winning their opening two games they are going to look to build upon a strong start to 2018.

LA Galaxy could be without up to 11 players for this tie through international call-ups, injuries and suspension to their captain, Ashley Cole.

Sigi Schmid has an unenviable task on his hands here. The last thing the Galaxy will have wanted is an away trip on top of all those absentees.

Galaxy didn’t play last weekend and are looking to bounce back from their 2-1 defeat to NYCFC in Week 2. You could forgive Galaxy fans for thinking they have very little chance of coming away from BC Place with a positive result, but stranger things have happened.

The Galaxy will hope the arrival of Zlatan Ibrahimovic could spark fresh life into the team, especially if he is available to make his debut in next week’s LA Derby.

Vancouver Whitecaps 3-1 LA Galaxy: Given that LA Galaxy have got so many players missing, a Vancouver win looks likely. The Whitecaps have enjoyed good form in recent times against Galaxy, they’re unbeaten in their last three meetings, winning the last two. Schmid will be hoping to avoid anymore injuries to his side and get this one out of the way.

Columbus Crew vs DC United | 2018 MLS Preview and Prediction

Major League Soccer: Columbus Crew vs DC United

MAPFRE Stadium – Saturday, March 25 2018 – 18:00 ET (22:00 GMT)

UK TV Coverage: Live on Sky Sports Football

Columbus Crew vs DC United: Preview

Saturday evening sees Columbus Crew take on Eastern Conference rivals DC United live on Sky Sports Football for UK fans.

Columbus Crew sit second in the East after failing to make it three wins in a row to start their 2018 campaign. Their 0-0 draw with Philadelphia did however keep their unbeaten run intact and they will be hoping to continue that streak here.

An impressive start to the season has been helped by the partnership formed by new signing Gyasi Zardes and Crew SC favourite Federico Higuain. Although they failed to combine to break the deadlock last time out, they are already proving to be a very real threat to opposition defences.

DC’s comeback from being two goals down at half-time to draw 2-2 last weekend against Houston will have been celebrated like a win. They showed great desire not to let the scoreline get on top of them and it stopped it being two losses on the bounce.

It hasn’t been the ideal start to 2018 for the Black-and-Red, who are yet to win a game. This wouldn’t exactly be the fixture of choice in that hunt for three points for the DC faithful either, as they have failed to win in ten on the road against Columbus.

However, all winless runs have to come to an end at some point and that is exactly what Ben Olsen will be reminding his side of ahead of this one.

Columbus Crew vs DC United: Team News

Columbus Crew

🌎 International duty: Zack Steffen and Wil Trapp

Key stat: Columbus Crew are unbeaten in their last ten home games against DC United.

Columbus Crew vs DC United: Prediction

Columbus Crew 2-1 DC United: Given their strong start to 2018 and home record against DC, Columbus will be going into this one looking at it as a must win game. They will want to bounce back to winning ways after their draw last weekend and have a great chance of doing so here. DC won’t roll over easily. This fixture is far from a foregone conclusion and they have more than enough talent to come away from Columbus with a point at the very least. But it is a real possibility that history will repeat itself and we see DC going home empty handed.

Atlanta United vs DC United | 2018 MLS Match Preview and Prediction

Major League Soccer: Atlanta United vs DC United

Mercedes-Benz Stadium – Sunday, March 11th 2018 – 15:00 ET (19:00 GMT)

Live on Sky Sports Football (UK)

Atlanta United vs DC United: Preview

Sunday evening sees Atlanta United lineup at Mercedes-Benz Stadium for their first home game of the season as they welcome fellow Eastern Conference side DC United.

2018 started with a bang for Atlanta, although not the one they wanted. They were on the receiving end of a hammering from Houston. That 4-0 away loss was a shock to the rest of MLS as they conceded three goals in the first half hour.

A response is needed here. ‘Tata’ Martino’s side know they have to remind everyone what they are capable of. They enjoyed a very promising debut season last year and performed very well at home. So Atlanta need to make it their business to send out a message of their own here.

Standing in the way of that is DC United. They drew their season opener against Orlando so will be looking to be unbeaten at the very least after week two.

The two sides met three times last season and the record books look good for DC, who won all three. Keeping that winning run going is not going to be easy though.

Ben Olsen’s side did not travel overly well in 2017. They have failed to win in 12 of their last 13 on the road and face an Atlanta side who scored 48 goals at home last year, the most in an MLS debut campaign since 2010.

The tie also marks the return of Yamil Asad. The former Atlanta player has described returning to face his previous employers as a strange feeling. He showed the impact he can make on opening weekend, netting DC’s first goal of the 2018 campaign – just as he did for Atlanta last season.

Atlanta United vs DC United: Preview

Atlanta United 2-1 DC United – This should be a game that Atlanta go into with the belief they can win. Their confidence will have been rocked with the magnitude of that defeat last weekend but they cannot let that stop them playing the way they know they can. DC United will be looking at this one as a winnable game – but considering their inconsistency on the road weighed up against Atlanta’s home form, winning it is going to be a big ask.

Chicago Fire vs Sporting Kansas City | 2018 MLS Match Preview and Prediction

Major League Soccer: Chicago Fire vs Sporting Kansas City

Toyota Park – Saturday, March 10th 2018 – 18:00 ET (23:00 GMT)

Chicago Fire vs Sporting Kansas City: Preview

MLS is back for Chicago Fire after their week one bye. They start their 2018 campaign by welcoming Sporting Kansas City to Toyota Park.

After an impressive 2017 regular season, where they finished up third in the Eastern Conference, Chicago Fire fell at the first hurdle in the playoffs.

This season Veljko Paunović will be hoping to take his side into the playoffs again and reach the latter stages of the postseason competition. He has strengthened his squad in the hope of continuing to head his side in the right direction.

Sporting Kansas City didn’t start their 2018 campaign in the fashion they would have wanted to. They lost 2-0 to NYCFC in a surprising home defeat. Now they have to bounce back.

However, Sporting KC struggled on the road in their last eight games of 2017. They failed to pick up a win in any of those ties. The last time they made the trip to Bridgeview (2016) they lost 1-0, so the SKC faithful will be hoping history doesn’t repeat itself.

The pressure will ramp up on Peter Vermes and his side if they fail to take a positive result this weekend. They are at the foot of the Western Conference after week one and could potentially find themselves four points adrift of the playoffs if they lose this game.

Chicago Fire vs Sporting Kansas City: Prediction

Chicago Fire 1-1 Sporting Kansas City – Given that it is Chicago’s opening game there is going to be a buzz around Toyota Park, so the expectancy for them to deliver will be high. Sporting KC need to pick up a point at the very least here but that is by no means going to be an easy task. A draw looks a likely outcome for this one.

Major League Soccer: Sporting Kansas City vs New York City FC

Children’s Mercy Park – Sunday, March 4th 2018 – 19:30 ET (00:30 GMT)

Sporting Kansas City vs New York City FC: Preview

Sunday evening sees two sides tipped for big things this season start their 2018 campaign. Sporting Kansas City wouldn’t have placed New York City FC too high in the list for teams they wanted to face on opening weekend.

Sporting KC had the best MLS defence of 2017, but ultimately didn’t have the firepower in attack to lead them to glory.

In an ever competitive Western Conference, Peter Vermes and his side will have to be at it from the off to ensure they don’t get left behind in the race for top spot. They have made some high quality signings but have also seen some key players depart, so it’s going to be interesting to see how they line up come Sunday.

New York City FC need this to be a big season. It’s their fourth MLS campaign and last season was the first time they really started to look a classy outfit on a consistent basis.

Patrick Vieira has done a good job as NYCFC head coach so far, helped in part by his big names performing – but now they need to step up and make it their business to top the Eastern Conference.

Key faces like Andrea Pirlo and Jack Harrison have departed through retirement and transfers respectively but with some youthful attacking additions, along with talisman and consistent performer David Villa, they should be a force to be reckoned with.

Sporting Kansas City vs New York City FC: Prediction

Sporting Kansas City 1-1 New York City FC: This is a difficult one to call. Given SKC’s defensive solidarity and NYCFC’s attacking prowess it may be a case of the two powers meeting their match. Neither side will be happy starting their campaign without a win, but given the magnitude of this fixture, avoiding defeat in week one would be a welcomed outcome. Definitely a game to watch.

MLS Preview and Prediction: LA Galaxy vs Sporting Kansas City

Competition: Major League Soccer – LA Galaxy vs. Sporting Kansas City

Venue: StubHub Center – Thursday, June 2 – 22:30 ET (03:30 BST)

Match Odds: LA Galaxy 7/10 – Draw 14/5 – Kansas City 15/4

Match Preview

LA Galaxy welcome Sporting Kansas City to StubHub Center on Thursday evening in one of six midweek fixtures before the two week international break.

Galaxy’s unbeaten run of nine was ended by Montreal at the weekend in dramatic fashion as they conceded in the last seconds of injury time.

Bruce Arena’s side have now only won once in their last five games and trail top spot in the Western Conference by eight points.

LA are still 5th and do boast the best goal difference in Major League Soccer. They’ll be looking to get back on track here and improve on recent results.

Sporting Kansas City are struggling for form and come into this one off the back of their 1-0 loss to DC, their second loss on the bounce and fourth in their last five.

Peter Vermes will be concerned with SKC’s form, as they have only won once in their last ten outings and only scored seven goals in those games.

Kansas City remain 7th in the West and only three points outside the top six, so if they can regain form and get on a run they could push their way back up the table.

Team News

LA Galaxy have no injury concerns heading into this tie but will be without Robbie Keane, Baggio Husidic and Gyasi Zardes who are all on international duty.

Sporting Kansas City are expecting to be without Kevin Ellis through injury and Seth Sinovic is a doubt. Soni Mustivar, Matt Besler and Graham Zusi are also on international duty.

Key Points

LA Galaxy’s last five: D/W/D/D/L

Sporting Kansas City’s last five: L/L/W/L/L

Key Stat: Fortress – Galaxy are unbeaten in their last six games at StubHub Center

Key Player: Steven Gerrard – The midfield maestro is the joint leader of assists for Galaxy so far this season. He will need to step up and take the game to SKC in the absence of so many key faces for his side.

Score Prediction

LA Galaxy 3-1 Sporting Kansas City – Galaxy to bounce back and continue their strong run of home form. Although both sides are missing players through international duty, SKC have struggled of late and don’t have quite the same squad depth as the home side.

Venue: BC Place – Saturday, May 28 – 18:00 ET (23:00 BST)

Match Odds: Vancouver 6/5 – Draw 12/5 – Houston 11/5

Match Preview

Vancouver Whitecaps welcome Houston Dynamo to BC Place on Saturday evening in a tie which looks like it could be very much one-way traffic.

Vancouver come into this one off the back of their 4-2 loss away at Portland, a result that ended a three-game winning streak.

The Whitecaps sit 4th in the Western Conference, trailing top spot by seven points. They will see this as a game there for the taking against a Houston side who have struggled this season.

Carl Robinson will have his players well prepared for this one and they have shown excellent form at BC Place, going unbeaten in their last six.

Seattle Sounders vs Vancouver Whitecaps 2016

Houston Dynamo come into this tie after parting company with head coach Owen Coyle during the week. Recent form has been disappointing and last weekend’s result was the Scotsman’s final game in charge. Their 1-0 loss away at Chicago closed the gap between the bottom two sides in the Supporters’ Shield standings to just one point.

The away side have lost seven of their last ten outings. A possible recovery looked underway until last weekend and they have now won just two in their last five.

Dynamo are bottom of the Western Conference, trailing the top six by eight points. This is starting to look like it could be a long season for the Houston fans, who will be willing their side to find form and regain confidence.

MLS: New York Red Bulls vs. Houston Dynamo Bruin

Team News

Vancouver Whitecaps could be without up to four as Christian Dean, Deybi Flores and Masato Kudo are all expected to miss out. Fraser Aird is a doubt. Both Octavio Rivero and Blas Perez are one caution away from suspension and will need to watch their step.

Houston Dynamo have two injury concerns, as both Raul Rodriguez and DaMarcus Beasley are doubts.

Key Points

Vancouver Whitecaps’ form: L/W/W/W/L

Houston Dynamo’s form: L/W/L/W/L

Key Stat: Homesick – Houston have lost their last ten away MLS outings.

Key Player: Pedro Morales – The Vancouver midfielder has had a great influence on their season so far, he is their top scorer with six goals and will look to fire the home side to victory again here.

Embed from Getty Images

Score Prediction

Vancouver Whitecaps 3-1 Houston Dynamo – This should be a routine three points for Vancouver, but they cannot afford to have any lapses in concentration otherwise they risk allowing Houston into the game. Houston just need to get a lucky break, last weekend was a good chance of them getting back-to-back wins, which would have put them in a far better position heading into this one.

MLS Preview and Prediction: LA Galaxy vs San Jose Earthquakes

Competition: Major League Soccer – LA Galaxy vs. San Jose Earthquakes

Venue: StubHub Center – Sunday, May 22 – 19:00 ET (00:00 BST)

Match Odds: LA Galaxy 3/5 – Draw 3/1 – San Jose 9/2

Match Preview

LA Galaxy welcome San Jose Earthquakes to StubHub Center in the latest instalment of the California Clasico as part of MLS Rivalry Week this weekend.

Bruce Arena’s side extended their unbeaten run to eight games with their 2-2 draw away at Philadelphia last time out.

Galaxy sit 4th in the Western Conference, one point ahead of San Jose in 5th ahead of this tie and LA have some cushioning as they have played a game less than the Quakes.

LA boast the best goal difference in MLS and if they can continue their run of form they will have a real chance of winning the Supporters’ Shield. They trail top spot by five points but have two games in hand.

Embed from Getty Images

San Jose Earthquakes ended a two-game winless streak with their 3-1 home win over Houston last time out.

The Quakes haven’t won on the road in their last seven attempts, losing five and drawing two and have conceded 16 along the way.

Dominic Kinnear’s side lost their earlier meeting between the sides this season 3-1 and haven’t won any of their last five away against Galaxy.

San Jose have struggled in recent times in the Cali Clasico, winning just two out of the last ten, so a win would be a hugely celebrated result here and would move them above the Galaxy in the West.

Seattle Sounders vs San Jose Earthquakes

Team News

LA Galaxy have just the one injury concern as Alan Gordon looks set to miss out, while Jelle Van Damme is one booking away from suspension.

San Jose Earthquakes could be without up to five players as Marc Pelosi, Cordell Cato, Clarence Goodson and Mark Sherrod are all expected to miss out. Quincy Amarikwa could make the squad as he is returning to full fitness. Anibal Godoy is one caution away from suspension.

Key Points

LA Galaxy’s last five: W/W/D/W/D

New England Revolution’s last five: L/W/D/L/W

Key Stat: LA are unbeaten in 13 of their last 14 home games in Major League Soccer.

Key Player: Giovani Dos Santos – The LA Galaxy forward has netted five goals this season and is their top goalscorer. He will look to provide the spark needed in the final third.

Embed from Getty Images

Score Prediction

LA Galaxy 3-1 San Jose Earthquakes – Galaxy to repeat the scoreline of the first meeting of the season between these sides and continue their unbeaten run. Goals are coming from all over the park for the Galaxy, who are the highest scorers in MLS with 24. San Jose haven’t had the best form in the Cali Clasico and it looks like this one has the makings of another disappointing night for the Quakes fans.
