The Colorado Rapids meet LA Galaxy this Saturday as the Burgundy Boys look to get back to the playoffs and make a run at their second MLS Cup.  This will be a difficult match for the Rapids, but with the home crowd behind them this one is a winnable match.

Here is your MLS Viewing Guide, Round Two:

Friday, 11 March 2016

Orlando City vs Chicago Fire--5:00 PM MST--Orlando Citrus Bowl  (UniMas)

Neither of these teams played particularly well in week one with OCSC needing two late stoppage time goals to salvage a draw.  But Chicago is really a bad team and I think they get run out of the park by the Lions in this one.

New England Revolution vs D.C. United--1:00 PM MST--Gillette Stadium  (MLS Live)

The Revs are going to be able to score some goals this season and I am not sure how many goals DCU keeps out in this one.  Call this a Revs win.

Real Salt Lake vs Seattle Sounders--2:00 PM MST--Rio Tinto Stadium  (MLS Live)

RSL had the win in Orlando.  They had it.  Then they absolutely blew it and came away with a point.  I think this one is a draw as well as Seattle will be ready to play and not fear the Utah crowd.

Montreal Impact vs New York Red Bulls--2:00 PM MST--Olympic Stadium  (MLS Live)

Montreal had an impressive road win to start the year and the Red Bulls looked flat.  I think that trend continues and the Impact get the win.

Colorado Rapids vs LA Galaxy--5:00 PM MST--Dick's Sporting Goods Park  (Altitude) TICKETS

I want so very badly to pick the Rapids here but the Galaxy are a good team and despite missing Giovani dos Santos and Dan Kennedy, the Galaxy should have too much for the Rapids.

Columbus Crew SC vs Philadelphia Union--5:30 PM MST--MAPFRE Stadium  (MLS Live)

Thanks for playing Union.  Crew win big.

Sporting Kansas City vs Vancouver Whitecaps--6:30 PM MST--Children's Mercy Park  (MLS Live)

Two of the class teams in the West but only one of them wins this one and it is Sporting.

Houston Dynamo vs FC Dallas--6:30 PM MST--BBVA Compass Stadium  (MLS Live)

The battle for Texas!  Dallas is a far better team but for some reason this feels like a draw.  But an entertaining draw.

New York City FC vs Toronto FC--3:00 PM MDT--Yankee Stadium  (ESPN2)

NYCFC gave up three goals to a crap Fire team and Toronto FC has a much better team than they did last season.  However, the NYCFC front line is much better than what TFC faced last week so call this a draw.

San Jose Earthquakes vs Portland Timbers--5:00 PM MDT--Avaya Stadium  (Fox Sports 1)

Yeah, the Quakes are average at best and Portland is better than most.  So of course it will be a Quakes win.
