The New England Revolution travel to Canada today to take on Toronto FC in one of the more intriguing match-ups of MLS week nine.
Jermain Defoe is back in the starting lineup as TFC takes a full-strength team into today’s Eastern Conference showdown against a Revs side that is close to full strength as well now and enjoying a good run of form.
The red-hot Seattle Sounders will look to keep their form going when they take on struggling Philadelphia Union at CenturyLink Field. Clint Dempsey will look to carry over his scoring-machine form of April against a Union defense that has proved vulnerable at times.
In Portland, the Timbers play host to D.C. United as they search for their first win of the season. D.C. United comes into the match in good form.
