Saturday, June 8

New England Revolution vs. D.C. United 0-0

Diego Fagundez scored a goal for the fourth consecutive game, and added two assists, to lead the Revolution to a 5-0 victory against the LA Galaxy on Sunday afternoon. The five-goal victory tied the largest margin of victory in Revolution club history.

The Revolution also recorded their third consecutive shutout, now having gone 305 minutes without allowing a goal, the third-longest such streak this season in MLS and the fifth-longest in club history. The Revs have allowed just nine goals this season, the best defensive mark in MLS.

United saw their winless streak extended to 11 games in the 2-0 loss at Chicago, the longest skid without a victory in the club’s 18-year history. Earlier this season, United set a club record with a seven-game losing slide.

United won all three meetings a season ago, all by one goal, victorious in the two games at RFK Stadium. Those three wins snapped a five-game losing streak vs. the Revolution in the all-time league series, D.C’s first wins against New England since 2008.
CHRIS’S PREDICTION: 1 REVOLUTION to WIN

Chicago Fire vs. Portland Timbers 2-2

In two games since moving to the Fire from the LA Galaxy, Mike Magee has two goals and an assist. He scored his first MLS goal with the club in the 2-0 win Sunday vs. D.C. United; he had a goal and an assist in their Open Cup victory at midweek.

The Timbers return to league action after a weekend off, extending their club-record undefeated streak to 11 games in the 2-0 win at D.C. United on May 25.

In their midweek U.S. Open Cup victory against the USL PRO Wilmington Hammerheads, Fredéric Piquionne scored four goals in the Timbers’ 5-1 win – all before halftime. He became the 11th player in the U.S. Open Cup’s modern era (since 1995) to score four goals in an Open Cup game, the third MLS player to do so.

The Timbers have won all three meetings lifetime vs. the Fire, including a 2-1 win last year in Portland. The Timbers won the only meeting at Toyota Park, a 1-0 victory in 2011.
CHRIS’S PREDICTION: 2 TIMBERS to WIN

Real Salt Lake vs. LA Galaxy 3-1

Ned Grabavoy scored his third goal in the last three games, and Robbie Findley scored for the second time in the last three matches, as Real defeated San Jose on Saturday evening at Rio Tinto Stadium, the second game of a four-game home stand.

The Galaxy’s 5-0 defeat by the New England Revolution on Sunday afternoon at Gillette Stadium matched the largest margin of defeat in club history, equaling a 5-0 loss to the MetroStars on June 15, 2002.

The teams are meeting for the second time this season. Goals from Mike Magee and Charlie Rugg in the opening 13 minutes gave the Galaxy a 2-0 win April 27 at Rio Tinto Stadium.

The visiting team has now won the last four meetings in the all-time series, including all three games a year ago.
CHRIS’S PREDICTION: OVER 2.5 goals

Seattle Sounders FC vs. Vancouver Whitecaps 3-2

A week after giving up four goals in a loss to the LA Galaxy at The Home Depot Center, Sounders FC returned to Carson and defeated Chivas USA 2-0 on Saturday evening, their fifth victory in the last seven matches.

Obafemi Martins has scored all four of his goals in MLS play during that seven-game stretch for Seattle, netting the opener vs. Chivas USA.

Whitecaps FC won on the road for the first time this season, coming back for a 2-1 win Saturday at the New York Red Bulls. After scoring one goal total in his first seven MLS seasons, Jordan Harvey has now scored in each of the last two campaigns, getting Vancouver’s opening goal at Red Bull Arena.

Whitecaps FC have yet to defeat their Cascadia rivals to the south since coming to MLS. Sounders FC have won two of the five meetings all-time, with three draws. Seattle won 2-0 last Aug. 18 at CenturyLink Field, their first home win vs. Vancouver.
CHRIS’S PREDICTION: 1 Sounders to WIN

Wednesday, June 5
