MLS Viewing Guide, Week 13

Major League Soccer offers three mid-week matches including one featuring our Burgundy Boys.

Century Link Field has never been kind to the Colorado Rapids as the club has taken just one draw at the C-Link since Seattle Sounders came into MLS.  But the Lads are back at it tonight as they play the Sounders before heading back to Colorado for a Saturday home date with the Timbers.

Off This Week: None

Wednesday (5-27)

Seattle Sounders vs Colorado Rapids--Century Link Field--8:00 PM MDT (Altitude)

I really think that Colorado is building something here and playing Seattle will provide an opportunity to see how far along that build is.  That being said, the Rapids have a dreadful time of it at the C-Link and I think this ends in a loss for the good guys.  But....don't be shocked if they grab a result.

Portland Timbers vs D.C. United--Providence Park--8:30 PM MDT (MLS Live)

Portland is hurting again with the loss of Diego Valeri but they will be home on their carpet which should give them a natural advantage.  But D.C. is a good team and I think they take a tie out this one.

LA Galaxy vs Real Salt Lake--Stubhub Center--8:30 PM MDT (MLS Live)

I am not buying that "RSL is back" and all that crap.  They never left.  Just because they have a few bad results does not make they suddenly a poor team.  I think they sneak a road win out of this as I am not quite convinced that LA has adjusted to losing Marcelo Sarvas.

Friday (5-29)

Sporting Kansas City vs FC Dallas--Sporting Park--7:00 PM MDT (UniMas)

Will the real Sporting team stand up and be counted?  I think they have found their form and they win this won going away.

Saturday (5-30)

Toronto FC vs San Jose Earthquakes--BMO Field--3:00 PM MDT (MLS Live)

TFC should win this game and San Jose should lose, but this is the type of match that the Quakes somehow, someway scrape out a result.  And they will.

Vancouver Whitecaps vs Real Salt Lake--BC Place--4:00 PM MDT (MLS Live)

Did the Caps get screwed by the refs last Saturday?  Who cares.  They get their revenge and pick up a win to stop the rot.

New York City FC vs Houston Dynamo--Yankee Stadium--5:00 PM MDT (MLS Live)

Eventually NYCFC will win again and they will finally break their streak against a visiting Houston team.

D.C. United vs Philadelphia Union--RFK Stadium--5:00 PM MDT (MLS Live)

I think it is good that the Union have picked up a couple of wins in a row because there was no way they were as bad as their record stated.  But D.C. is a team that is trying to prove the doubters wrong and will win this one.  (and why you doubt them I am not sure--they are good)

Orlando City vs Columbus Crew SC--Citrus Bowl--5:30 PM MDT (MLS Live)

The Lions have picked up a couple of good results in the last week or two and seem to be finding their form.  Columbus is a puzzling team that I cannot figure out at this point.  I think the Crew get a surprise win in Orlando.

Chicago Fire vs Montreal Impact--Toyota Park--6:30 PM MDT (MLS Live)

Montreal is playing some good soccer right now and Chicago is playing inconsistent soccer right now.  That has every makings of a 0-0 draw in Chicago.

Colorado Rapids vs Portland Timbers--Dick's Sporting Goods Park--7:00 PM MDT (Altitude)

Rapids will win this one and take two of three in their Cascadia week.

Sunday (5-31)

Seattle Sounders vs New York Red Bulls--Century Link Field--3:00 PM MDT (ESPN2)

I am super excited for this one as it should be a solid match.  The Sounders will win this one and the Metros troubles will continue.

New England Revolution vs LA Galaxy--Gillette Stadium--5:00 PM MDT (FoxSports1)

MLS Cup Rematch!  Yawn.   This is a Revs win.
