The second edition of the SuperLiga Tournament pitting the best teams in MLS and the best from Mexico is set to kick off tonight with a pair of juicy match-ups. D.C. United, the hottest team in MLS, plays host to Chivas de Guadalara at RFK Stadium, while defending MLS champion Houston faces Mexican champion Atlante at Robertson Stadium.
