Two teams, a combined 10-1 record and a showdown to determine league supremacy.
Unbeaten Eastern Conference leaders Sporting Kansas City take on Western Conference leaders Real Salt Lake in a match-up of the two teams widely regarded as the best in Major League Soccer. It is a match-up that could offer up a preview of the MLS Cup, and at the very least should give us a handful of tantalizing head-to-head individual match-ups on Saturday.
In one corner you have Sporting KC's vaunted 4-3-3, combining a stingy defense, relentless midfield and dangerous forwards. In the other corner you have RSL, with an imposing back-line, a highly-technical midfield and dynamic strikers.
Just who has the edge? Sporting KC is the home team, so they will be slight favorites, though it should be noted RSL has enjoyed success on the road this early season.
So who do you think will win? Make your prediction after the jump:
Who did you pick? How do you see Saturday's marquee match-up going? Think Sporting KC can keep it rolling? See RSL being the first team to beat Sporting KC?
