While Sporting Kansas City has kept their four point lead at the top of the Eastern Conference, both D.C. United and Toronto FC are doing their best to keep pace.
Second place D.C. United host third-place TFC on Wednesday evening in their third meeting of the regular season, with both teams gunning for a victory. D.C. have won three matches in a row even without the injured Fabian Espindola while TFC are hoping to get out of a slump, winning just once in their last seven matches.
It’s a busy evening for Major League Soccer on Wednesday as three other games take place in addition to the one at RFK Stadium. The struggling New England Revolution host the Colorado Rapids, the exciting Vancouver Whitecaps travel to the Chicago Fire, while Real Salt Lake host Thierry Henry and the New York Red Bulls.
Also in action on Wednesday evening are a couple of friendly matches. Manchester City face Liverpool in a preseason friendly match at Yankee Stadium and Club America host host La Liga champions Atletico Madrid at Estadio Azteca. The final place in the Copa Libertadores final is up for grabs as well with favorites San Lorenzo visiting Bolivar. Finally, NWSL leaders Seattle Reign FC visit the Houston Dash, with the match on ESPN3.
