The battle of the MLS unbeatens will take place today in Kansas City, Kansas. Okay, so maybe that’s a little bit of hyperbole, but there is no mistaking that both the Kansas City Wizards and Colorado Rapids enjoyed dream starts to their seasons last week.
Both teams scored shutout victories at home and now the Wizards play host to the Rapids with a chance to jump out in front of the pack in the Eastern Conference. The Rapids will be hoping to do the same in the Western Conference.
The match is scheduled for 5 p.m. ET, a change brought about by the fact that Kansas will be playing in the NCAA Final Four tonight. No matter, the Wizards should still have a lively crowd at CommunityAmerica Ballpark.
What match-ups will I be watching for today? The Christian Gomez-Kerry Zavagnin battle and Terry Cooke-Michael Harrington match-ups should be especially fun to watch. I predicted a Kansas City victory on ESPN.com and am sticking to that one here.
If you will be watching the match today, please feel free to share your thoughts, opinions and some play-by-play in the comments section below. I know there are plenty of non-Wizards and non-Rapids fans who will be interested in this one.
Enjoy the match.
