MLS Matchday 14


With SuperLiga set to kick off and four MLS teams participating, it is a slightly-reduced MLS schedule we find ourselves with this week as we reach the mid-point of the 2009 season.

Chicago, New England, Kansas City and Chivas USA are all taking part in the battle vs. Mexican club, leaving ten teams to do battle in MLS this weekend.

There are three inter-conference games on tap, led by the D.C. United-Colorado Rapids tilt. D.C. is fresh off its surprising draw vs. Seattle while Colorado is coming off a bye week as it attempts to win without Conor Casey, who is at the Confederations Cup.
