Week 2 of MLS action began on Friday night, but Saturday provides a full slate of action with seven games on the schedule.

The Houston Dynamo host FC Dallas in the Texas Derby, headlining MLS Week 2 action on Saturday. Colombian winger Fabian Castillo’s status remains up in the air ahead of the evening contest, but Mauro Diaz and Maxi Urruti should provide enough firepower for the road side. On the other side of the ball, Will Bruin, Giles Barnes and Cristian Maidana will look to create as many goals as they did against the New England Revolution a week ago.

The Revolution kick off Saturday’s festivities hosting a D.C. United team that fell, 4-1, to the LA Galaxy on opening day. D.C. United’s attack looked strong in the first half against the Galaxy, but the defense fell apart in the last 45 minutes. The Revolution are coming off of a three-goal performance, and will be looking to continue that scoring trend.

Out west, Real Salt Lake will be hoping to keep the Seattle Sounders, who lost to Sporting Kansas City on Sunday, from claiming their first point of the season.
