The 2011 Eastern Conference finalists clash at Livestrong Sporting Park with plenty to play for in 2012, as Sporting Kansas City and the Houston Dynamo meet with an eye on improving their respective standing as the playoffs approach. Sporting KC is still very much in the mix for the Supporters' Shield, while the Dynamo have fallen a bit out of form (1-2-2 in their last five games), tumbling to fourth in the tightly contested East.
Out West, the Colorado Rapids' faint hopes at making the playoffs are on the line at the Home Depot Center, where the last two MLS Cup winners go head-to-head. The Galaxy have distanced themselves a bit from fifth-place Vancouver and are eyeing a top-three berth in the West, which would keep them out of the wild card round.
Here is the viewing schedule for the night's matches:
8:30 p.m. – NBC Sports Network – Sporting Kansas City vs. Houston Dynamo
11 p.m. – MLS Live/Univision Deportes – Los Angeles Galaxy vs. Colorado Rapids
