MLS Matchday Six


There have already been two games played this week, but MLS Matchday Six gets into full swing on Saturday with some very good intra-conference match-ups.

The marquee match-up this weekend pits the Chicago Fire against the Columbus Crew. Yes, I know, the Crew hasn't won a game yet, but Columbus is coming off a bye week and was playing better before the bye. Now the champs face a Fire team that is coming off a disappointing draw vs. KC and still dealing with lineup issues as head coach Denis Hamlett tries to balance the Fire's wealth of talent.

The second-best match-up is between inter-conference foes as New England travels West to puts unbeaten record on the line vs. a Real Salt Lake squad reeling from an awful showing vs. New York.

Here is a rundown of the weekend's matches, as well as some top individual match-ups to watch:
