MLS Week 6 Preview, Picks and Predictions

We should have some fun during 6th weekend of the MLS season. Entertaining, high scoring games expected in Portland and Dallas, but also plenty of attention will be on San Jose, where the Earthquakes hosting Crew on Sunday.

Five teams, the Fire, Red Bulls, Impact, Timbers and Earthquakes (played only 3 games) are still winless this year, but this list about to become little shorter this weekend.

The Galaxy, Timbers and Toronto FC are my favorites to win their matches this weekend. In Dallas and other games, we should see some goals, but it’s extremely hard to pick the winner.
I’m not even 38% in my accuracy this season, but I have been their before. I’m not blaming my self for my predictions, but the players, and often referees, most of the time is their fault. 🙂

However, despite poor start of the campaign, I’m confident trough the season, I should be able to get back to over 50%.

Current Week 6 record 512 (accuracy 29.41 % )

Last Week 5 record 79 (accuracy 37.5 % )

2014 MLS Predictions record 3462 (accuracy 35.41 % )

Picks and predictions are usually published here at least 1-2 hours before the game time.

San Jose Earthquakes vs. Columbus Crew 1-1

The Quakes return to league play following a weekend off, still looking for a first victory on the season. They lost 2-1 to New England on March 29 in their last MLS match, Chris Wondolowski scoring his second goal of the season.
The Crew suffered their first loss of the young season last weekend, dropping a 2-0 decision to Toronto FC at Crew Stadium after three wins in their first three games under head coach Gregg Berhalter.
The teams have played to three consecutive draws. The last team to win in the series was San Jose, running out 3-0 victors on May 14, 2011 at Buck Shaw Stadium.
The Crew haven’t defeated the Quakes at home since 2009, the teams have reached draws in the last three meetings in Columbus. The Crew haven’t won at Buck Shaw Stadium since 2008; they did win an away game vs. San Jose in 2009, at San Francisco’s Candlestick Park.

Philadelphia Union vs. Real Salt Lake 2-2

The teams have played to draws in each of their last two meetings, over the last two seasons. They reached a 2-2 tie at Rio Tinto Stadium a year ago.

With Nick Rimando injured following midweek national team duty in the USA’s 2-2 draw with Mexico, Jeff Attinella stepped in between the posts for RSL’s scoreless draw in their MLS Cup rematch with Sporting KC. It was Attinella’s fifth career MLS start; his first came in the lone regular season meeting with Kansas City last year, a 2-1 RSL loss.

Montreal Impact vs. Chicago Fire 1-1

The teams split their three-game series a season ago, each winning on their home ground before the clubs reached a 2-2 draw at Toyota Park on Sept. 28. The visiting team has never won in the series in five all-time meetings.

The Red Bulls are still searching for their first victory of the season, reaching a fourth consecutive draw in a 2-2 tie at the Montréal Impact over the weekend.
The longest a Supporters’ Shield winner has gone without a victory after claiming the honor were the LA Galaxy in 2003, who started 0-4-4 after winning the Shield the year before. The Columbus Crew started 2009 with an 0-2-5 record – then went on to claim the Supporters’ Shield for a second consecutive year.
The Red Bulls have a five-game undefeated streak alive in league play between the teams, winning the final two meetings a year ago. United’s last regular season win vs. New York came April 22, 2012, a 4-1 triumph at RFK Stadium.

FC Dallas vs. Seattle Sounders 2-3

FC Dallas won the final meeting between the teams a season ago, a 2-0 win on Sept. 19 at Toyota Stadium. It was their first victory against Sounders FC since May 25, 2011, when they won 1-0 in Seattle.

LA Galaxy vs. Vancouver Whitecaps 1-0

Whitecaps FC have won once in nine meetings all-time in all competitions between the teams – a 3-1 win last May 11 at BC Place. The teams have played to one draw, in 2012 in Vancouver.
The Galaxy have won all four meetings in Carson between the teams in league play. The 2-1 Galaxy victory last July 20 marked the first time Whitecaps FC had a scored a regular season goal there.

Perk’s first career shutout came in his first MLS start – a scoreless draw with Seattle Sounders FC on July 4, 2011.

Portland Timbers vs. Chivas USA 1-1

Coming into Saturday’s match, Diego Chará had scored two goals in 91 career league matches in MLS. Chará scored twice against Seattle – both on stunning long-range strikes from well outside the box – but saw the Timbers hauled back into a late 2-2 draw with their arch-rivals.
Chivas USA had their winless run extended to four games in a 3-0 loss to the LA Galaxy, as Erick Torres saw his streak of four games with a goal also snapped. The Galaxy have a six-game undefeated streak alive in SuperClásicos.
