Major League Soccer action returns across the country on Saturday with a number of high-profile matchups.
The must-see game of the weekend is the top of the table clash taking place at RFK Stadium, with D.C. United hosting the Seattle Sounders. Both sides had a tremendous first three months of the season but are missing key players due to injuries (Fabian Espindola), suspension (Obafemi Martins), and international duty (DeAndre Yedlin and Clint Dempsey).
Elsewhere across the league the New England Revolution host the Philadelphia Union, with Jim Curtin making his MLS head coaching debut, the Columbus Crew host the injury-ravaged FC Dallas, and the San Jose Earthquakes and LA Galaxy renew their rivalry in the first Cali Clasico of the year.
