LA Galaxy@ New York Red Bulls
Game Analysis

The Red Bulls will look to stay unbeaten this week against a surging LA Galaxy team. New York is coming off a convincing 2-0 win over San Jose where they saw Sacha Kljestan score his first goal since returning to MLS. The LA Galaxy are coming off back to back wins, led by unsung hero’s Baggio Husidic and Alan Gordon. With Robbie Keane still out with an injury and Jose Villarreal joining him on the sideline, look for those two to continue to carry a majority of the attack.

Toronto FC@ Orlando City
Game Analysis

Toronto will look to end a four game losing streak this week against Orlando City and Kaka. Orlando City’s defense fell apart last week, and with Kaka being the only real threat going forward, Toronto should be able to earn a point this weekend. Giovinco finally looks adapted to life in the United States and will get plenty of chances again this week. Maybe this will be the week that Jozy Altidore finally scores a goal as well.

The MLS weekend ends with one of the great rivalries in American sports. Seattle and their 40,000 fans will look to win their second in a row after their 3-1 win against Colorado last week. Seattle continues to be led by Obafemi Martins and Clint Dempsey, but last week Lamar Neagle finally broke through with a brace. As for Portland, they also won last week, but will have to play their best game if they want to beat the Sounders in Seattle. Darlington Nagbe continues to shine despite not scoring a goal all season. With Chad Marshall’s suspension, look for Portland to get a few more chances than usual in attack.
