The Western Conference will get an early start on Week Seven proceedings today as a pair of day-time kickoffs headline the weekend’s action.
The Seattle Sounders will look to pick up their first win of the 2013 MLS season today when they face off against the New England Revolution (4pm, MLS Direct Kick/Univision Deportes). Meanwhile, just two hours north of Seattle will feature aspiring West playoff teams Vancouver and Real Salt Lake doing battle at BC Place (4pm, MLS Direct Kick).
The day’s lone rivalry tilt features the New York Red Bulls traveling south to take on D.C. United in a match-up of struggling East squads (7pm, MLS Direct Kick). D.C. is always tough at home, but their recent attacking struggles could open the door for the Red Bulls, who aren’t exacting lighting the world on fire either.
The match of the day will take place in Texas, where FC Dallas take on the Los Angeles Galaxy in a match-up of Western Conference leaders (7:30pm, NBC Sports).
If you are wondering what happened to the Montreal-Columbus match, it was moved to Noon on Sunday due to snow storms hitting Montreal today.
