NYCFC's New Third DP?

Three Big Storylines:

  1. New York City FC is travelling to New Jersey to take on New York Red Bulls.  They even made up a hashtag for the event #NYCSoccerWarz.  The banter between the two supporters groups is top notch including the recent revelation that NYCFC is signing Mike Petke as their third DP.  On the pitch, both teams could really use a win.  The Seattle Sounders left a demoralized NYCFC in New York last weekend and the Red Bulls lost their first game of the season last weekend in New England.
  2. Toronto FC finished their seven match road trip to start the season with two wins in a row and brought nine points back to Toronto where on Sunday they will open their newly expanded stadium against the Houston Dynamo.  Sebastian Giovinco is starting to turn more and more heads around MLS and the diminuative Italian has embraced the Atomic Ant nickname.  The attendance record at BMO Field is 22,591, with the new capacity set at 30,000 and tickets sold out for the home opener there should be a new record on Sunday.
  3. The nightcap of Saturday's MLS Live slate is the Galaxy hosting FC Dallas.  The Galaxy are on a double game week having earned a 0-0 draw with RSL on Wednesday.  While FC Dallas come into the game rested after having blown out the Dynamo in Houston last Friday in a 4-1 win.  When healthy, and they are healthy, Dallas looks like one of the two best teams in MLS with Fabian Castillo and Mauro Diaz leading the way.  The way the Galaxy are playing, this could be a statement game for FC Dallas.  But MLS being notoriously hard to predict, LA will probably pull out a boring 1-0 win.

From a Sounders Point of View:

The Montreal Impact host the Portland Timbers on Saturday (1 PM Pacific, MLS Live and ROOT Sports in the Northwest), Sounders fans are always looking for Portland to drop points.  This is Montreal's first league match since playing the Concacaf Champions League Final.  The Vancouver Whitecaps host Philadelphia Union on Saturday, while it would be nice for the Union to take all three points they have been playing horrible.  If the Union could earn just a point, that would be great.
