SURPRISE! We've got FRIDAY GAMES! For the first time this season, MLS is utilizing the sixth day of the calendar week to bring us a game to enjoy after work/school/secret second family time. It will be good practice for us to prepare for next year's Fri-daily Univision broadcasts, and it is a pretty good one: Sporting KC vs Toronto FC.
GAME OF THE WEEK
The game of the week would totally be the Sounders visiting the Whitecaps this weekend, because none of the rest of these look all that fun. Blowouts are expected by the MLS crew, with only our match seeing predictions of both teams winning. One match that may be better than expected is DC going into Gillette Stadium. Eddie Johnson will be coming in with a full head of stem as he did a week ago in scoring his first goal of the year. After losing their first two matches of the year, DC has only lost once since. They topped an admittedly depleted Houston team midweek without Johnson's services. The Revolution have scored ten goals in their last two games, but that pace simply won't continue. United may not win, but they'll make a game out of it.
