Our expert’s MLS predictions
Philadelphia Union 2-1 Seattle Sounders
Philadelphia are flying high in the Eastern Conference and have won their last 5 at home (scoring 14 and conceding just 2). Seattle don’t lose many, but could struggle here, facing a quick turnaround from a mid-week home fixture and this mammoth road trip of over 2800 Miles
Look out for: The Talen Energy Stadium – one of the most iconic grounds in the MLS that includes a bridge spanning the Delaware River.
Minnesota United 2-0 Columbus Crew
Minnesota need to start turning home draws into wins if they are secure their first ever MLS Play-off berth. Columbus don’t travel well and will need to rely on new Man City recruit, goalkeeper Zack Steffen to get a result here.
Look out for: Federico Higuain, Gonzalo’s older and balder brother, pulling the strings for Columbus.
Sporting KC 3 – 1 Vancouver Whitecaps
Sporting KC won the Western Conference last season but have been slow out of the traps this time around. Vancouver have recovered from a dreadful start to the season, but can’t be trusted on the road. Back Kansas to blow Vancouver away here.
Look out for: ex- Dundee Utd and Derby wide man Johnny Russell who has found a new lease of life since moving to Sporting KC.
Houston Dynamo 2-2 DC United
Houston and DC United have made strong starts to the season and both look nailed on to be involved in the post season play offs. Houston are strong at home, but DC United, inspired by Wayne Rooney can claim a point on the road.
Look out for: pint sized Argentinian Luciano Acosta of DC United who is reportedly attracting interest from some of the biggest clubs in Europe, including Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain.
FC Dallas 1-1 LAFC
LAFC have blazed a trail in the Western Conference and are on track re-write the MLS record books (including most goals, most points & best goal difference). Dubbed as the “Man City of MLS” they face a tricky looking trip to Dallas, who are traditionally strong at home and can claim a point here.
Look out for: LAFC and former Arsenal striker Carlos Vela who leads the race for the Golden Boot in MLS.
