Following last week’s defeat at the hands of the Houston Dynamo, the Columbus Crew look to bounce back Saturday, though it surely won’t be an easy task.
The Crew are set to host Toronto FC (7:30 p.m., MLS Live) at MAPFRE Stadium to headlined Saturday’s slate of MLS action.
Kicking off the day’s schedule is a matchup of two sides seeking their first victory of the season as the Vancouver Whitecaps take on the Chicago Fire (6:00 p.m., MLS Live). In addition, FC Dallas face Sporting KC (8:30 p.m., MLS Live), Real Salt Lake hosts the Philadelphia Union (9:30 p.m., MLS Live) and the Seattle Sounders matchup with the San Jose Earthquakes at CenturyLink Field (10:00 p.m., MLS Live)

Enjoy the action (Today’s live commentary is after the jump):
Everything you thought you knew after week one, in week 2 we were reminded this is MLS.
Three games marred by terrible reffing. Hmmmm
Brad Evans bit hard on that one
As a seattle fan i would like a Pirlo right about now in central midfield. Thanks.
Wow. What a sweet cross from Michel on the second FCD goal. Blas 3 goals this year. Golden Boot winner??? Hahaha.
Also did you guys see Mauro Diaz just make Felihaber look silly in the first half?..sweet little move to create space..
do you not feel Perez was offsides there?
Hard to say.. camera angle is weird…
Man FCD is overwhelming SKC. Beeler is missed.
Give FCD credit though. Their Young back line is good..Zusi was a non factor all game. Felihaber seemed frustrated all game long.
Nice 3rd goal by FCD. Hollingshead has jets! Surprised! Castillo is a blaze. So fast.
Yeah, he looked off. Oh well.
SKC/FCD Good Game.
1-1 at half time.
Close game. last min goal by SKC at the half. Thought Dallas was the mores Dangerous of the two.
Sweet build up play for FCD on the goal.
Roger E is SKCs heart . Sweet goal. 2 much space given by Dallas.
Skcs attacks go to Grahm Zuni to DIE!!Moses Hernandez is playing great really just out hustling Zusi.Like this kid.
Cool just switching into that one now
Perez was at least 3 steps offside there…
Dallas ripped SKC to shreds on the third goal! Wow!
Good counter. Fast and Fluid play of the week nominee!
TFC waiting until there’s 3 minutes left to actually put up a fight for the ball
their defense is/was abysmal. the red card totally took the fight out until the last 3. first half was OK…. second half was terrible, terrible terrible. they were shot in the foot with being a man down and the defense couldn’t pass out of the back and usually just played kickball…. TFC might get into the playoffs but they won’t make a deep run until they improve their D
it seemed their scheme in the 2nd half was bunker and counter. That’s to be expected but they countered too fast or too slow. they needed to counter as a team with medium pace (picante sauce; from New York City) rather than boot it up top immediately or slow it down (which allowed the D to get back).
wow… Crew player gets accidentally kneed in the shoulder and he falls to ground holding his head like he got a concussion….. terrible
10 seconds later he gets a harsh yellow, karma perhaps?
Toronto needs to upgrade their defense in the summer……… imho
Creavalle is having a terrible game
Last week everyone was raving about him lol
looking forward to the post match rant from Bradley
he did seem to get the entire ball tho…. imho
True, probably should have just stayed on his feet in that situation tho. Even down a man TFC should have been able to string together a little bit of possession given the players they have. At least get the ball down field for Jozy to run on to. There mentality just was totally broken.
Did Jozy played? didn’t see a single comment about him.
Yeah he played
