MLS preview: Montreal Impact look to maintain impressive form
Montreal Impact will be looking to keep their good form going at the top of the Eastern Conference when they face San Jose on Saturday.
The leaders’ last outing saw them hammer Toronto 6-0 while the New York Red Bulls, currently two points behind Montreal, will want to keep in touch with the Impact when they travel to the Columbus Crew Stadium on Saturday.
In the Western Conference, LA Galaxy welcome Houston on Sunday and will be looking to the MLS’ leading scorer Mike Magee to help close the gap on pacesetters Dallas, who do not play until Wednesday against Portland Timbers.
The fourth-placed sides in both divisions will face one another as Sporting Kansas City welcome Chivas USA although, as it stands, Kansas are much closer to catching those above them than the side from the Home Depot Center.
At the bottom of the Western Conference, the Seattle Sounders are in desperate need of a win, having only amassed five points all season, and will face a big test from Philadelphia Union and their in-form striker Jack McInerney.
However, the Sounders will take heart from the fact that Union have failed to win any of their last five league matches.
New England Revolution will travel to Jeld-Wen Field to take on Portland with both sides having won their last outing, against Philadelphia and Sporting Kansas City respectively.
The two late games on Saturday will see Real Salt Lake face Vancouver and Colorado entertain Toronto FC.
