    Major League Soccer 2012 Preview: Toronto FC vs Philadelphia Union Predictions

    Toronto FC Preview

    Currently, Toronto FC is at the basement of the Eastern Conference rankings. The team so far, has a total of 10 points with sixteen games. Out of the sixteen games already played this season, Toronto has only two wins with ten losses and four draws. The good news, they’re going up against Philadelphia Union this Sunday, July 8. Why the good news? Well, the Union is not too far ahead of Toronto in record performance this year meaning they can catch up. Toronto hasn't lost in five straight, enjoying a noticeable upgrade in form under new coach Paul Mariner.

    Philadelphia Union Preview

    With a total of 14 points from fifteen games played which has a current record of four wins, nine losses and two draws, the Union is in a way, equal against their up-coming opponents Toronto FC. What the Union has where Toronto is lacking however, is the defense the team possess. Looking at the currents stats of the Eastern Conference teams, Philly has a better defensive record, even against the current top players, DC United.

    Toronto FC vs Philadelphia Union Predictions: 1-1 Draw

    Predicting a draw goes to show how closely similar both teams are when it comes to their statistics. Although Toronto seemed to show more promise now than let’s say, five games ago, both teams are still on the equal.

    Major League Soccer 2012 Preview: Chicago Fire vs Los Angeles Galaxy Predictions

    Chicago Fire Preview

    The Fire seems to be on the right track disregarding the draw against Houston last July 3rd. In the Eastern conference, they have a number 4 ranking with eight wins, five losses and four ties tallying a total of 28 points. Being in the top five can prove a lot for any time even if being pitted against a group from the Western counterpart. Their most recent loss came about on June 2 against New England but the preceding matches were in Chicago’s favour as they beat then number 1 New York Bulls.

    Los Angeles Galaxy Preview

    The LA Galaxy, as of now are ranked at number 6 in the Western Conference with six wins, ten losses, and two draws raking in a total of 20 points. In the beginning of the season despite some challenges, things seemed pretty much promising for Beckham and the boys. But after two losses in a row, the latest being against Philadelphia with 1-2 on the Fourth of July and before that was with San Jose with 4-3 and was dubbed one of the greatest games of the season, LA is obviously have some trouble and might be headed for a downward spiral. Now, LA Galaxy midfielder David Beckham was given a one-game suspension and fined an undisclosed amount by the Disciplinary Committee for his provocative behaviour following the Galaxy’s 4-3 loss to San Jose on June 30.

    Chicago Fire vs Los Angeles Galaxy Predictions: Chicago Fire wins 1-0

    Sure, the Galaxy is strong in both areas, defense and attack. But the Fire as an ace up their sleeve in the form of Marco Pappa. If he is able to continue his exceptional form in midfield, the Fire should rebound on Sunday.

    Major League Soccer 2012 Preview: New England Revolution vs New York Red Bulls Predictions

    New England Revolution Preview

    While the Revs will take the two points collected after scoring two 94th minute equalizers in 2-2 draws against Toronto FC and Seattle over the past fortnight, they would like to secure a win in a more simplistic manner against the Red Bulls, according to midfielder Benny Feilhaber.

    New York Red Bulls Preview

    The Red Bulls will certainly provide a stiff test at the back with its preference to operate through the wide areas and its potent attacking options, but the internal emphasis on cutting out those mistakes at the back must take precedence, according to Heaps.

    New England Revolution vs New York Red Bulls Predictions: New York wins 2-1

    Home or away the Red Bulls show why they are the better team. New York’s pressure and attack on the defense will continue to be a problem for New England. New England’s injuries will also hinder them from even getting a chance to get the victory over New York.

    Major League Soccer 2012 Preview: Montreal Impact vs Columbus Crew Predictions

    Montreal Impact Preview

    The Impact is coming off three straight losses. In that span, Jesse Marsch's side has been outscored 9-1. Montreal's lone goal of that tough stretch came in Wednesday night's 3-1 loss at Stade Saputo to Sporting KC.

    "Hopefully we come out strong. It's something we did well (against RSL on 6/30)," Gaven said. "We'll try to get all over them early and hopefully if we do that, it will kind of kill their spirit a little bit and we'll score a few goals. We're just going to try to build off what we did last game and hopefully do the same thing up there."

    Columbus Crew Preview

    The Crew could have up to 26 players available for selection on Sunday as Chad Marshall, Dilly Duka, and Carlos Mendes have all participated in training this week as they hope to return from injuries. In addition, new signing Jairo Arrieta will make his debut in Black & Gold against the Impact.

    The added bodies in training have sparked competition amonst the team as players fight for spots in the starting XI.

    Montreal Impact vs Columbus Crew Predictions: 1-1 Draw

    If it weren’t for the injuries of Columbus I would have it 2-1 for the Crew. But, with the combination of injuries and the poor play of Montreal this goes down as a tie.

  2. Major League Soccer 2012 Preview: Columbus Crew vs Sporting KC Predictions

    Sporting KC will visit Columbus Stadium July 14. Both teams will go into this one with something to prove. For Columbus if they can bounce back from their disappointing loss to Montreal and for KC if they can maintain 1st place in the MLS standings.

    Columbus Crew Preview

    The Crew came off of a 2-1 loss to the Impact last Sunday. They have been plagued with some key injuries Crew captain Chad Marshall returned after missing eight games because of a concussion. Columbus won four and lost three without Marshall, who had not played since he was hit on the head by a ball in practice on May 4. The Crew is staggering on offense no doubt about it. "We’re missing a little creativity up front,” defender Josh Williams said. “I don’t know what it is. I’m just trying to do my job and let the coaches and forwards figure that out."

    It had better come soon as the Crew begin a run of four straight games against the top two clubs in the Eastern Conference.

    Sporting KC Preview

    The Wiz Sporting went from the lowest point of their season to – so far – the highest.And they did it in the same stadium, against the same team.The difference was in the defense. K.C is sitting pretty in the power rankings with a 9-3-1 record. They have really come into their own and found their groove coming off of a 0-0 against 1st place Houston. The injury list looks pretty similar and simple this week. Bobby Convey is still listed as probable for his calf strain, and Jon Kempin (R ankle fracture), Cyprian Hedrick (L fibula fracture), and Lawrence Olum (L groin strain) are still out. There was some speculation Bobby Convey would return for this game, but if he's available to play, I'd bet we see him as a sub.

    Columbus Crew Vs Sporting KC Predictions: Columbus Crew wins 2-0

    Good teams have a way of punishing bad teams and in this case Sporting News will be all over Columbus. I see with KC’s stellar defense and offensive pressure will be too much for the Crew.

We're just going to try to build off what we did last game and hopefully do the same thing up there."

    "We can get an idea of how they want to play us and how they play at home from video of the game they played last night," echoed Gruenebaum.

    Columbus Crew Preview

    The Crew could have up to 26 players available for selection on Sunday as Chad Marshall, Dilly Duka, and Carlos Mendes have all participated in training this week as they hope to return from injuries. In addition, new signing Jairo Arrieta will make his debut in Black & Gold against the Impact.

    The added bodies in training have sparked competition amonst the team as players fight for spots in the starting XI.

    "(Competition) is always going to make us better. Everybody is fighting for spots, Gaven explained. "We've got some guys coming back from injury. It's going to push everybody harder, which is going to make our team better as a whole."

    Added Gruenebaum, "When you breed competition in training, it makes everything better. It makes everybody's decision harder as a coaching staff to pick the starting XI."

    The man in charge of choosing that starting XI, head coach Robert Warzycha, says his lineup will depend on what combination he feels will be most effective against this week's opponent, the Montreal Impact.

    "We're going to play a little bit (in training) and figure out what's best against Montreal," Warzycha said. "Sometimes, the team that you play against determines who you're going to put on the field. The best matchup is going to be key to the match."

    Montreal Impact vs Columbus Crew Predictions: 1-1 Draw

    If it weren’t for the injuries of Columbus I would have it 2-1 for the Crew. But, with the combination of injuries and the poor play of Montreal this goes down as a tie.

  4. Major League Soccer 2012 Preview: Houston Dynamo vs Washington DC United Predictions

    As the Houston Dynamo look to kick off their second-half push, the club is looking to strike a long sought-after balance between attack and defense.

    Throughout the first half of the season, the Dynamo have been strong in either defense or attack, but have struggled to put together complete performances on a consistent basis. Houston have pitched six shutouts in 2012, but have scored just three goals in those matches. Conversely, in games where Houston have scored two or more goals, the club has a record of 2-2-3, giving up 16 goals in the process. A recent shift in formation has translated into back-to-back clean sheets for the Dynamo, who are on a shutout streak that currently stands at 223 minutes. Now the goal is to build on the offensive side of the ball to complement their renewed defensive form.

    “We know we’re not exactly lighting the scoreboard up, but we were unbeaten last week [0-0 tie at Sporting] and that’s a positive,” Houston head coach Dominic Kinnear

    Washington DC United Preview

    DC United made a statement beating the Impact in their last game keeping them in 1st place in the Eastern Conference D.C. United put three unanswered goals past the Montreal Impact to open up a sliver of daylight at the Eastern Conference summit. A goal just before the interval from Chris Pontius was joined by second-half strikes from Robbie Russell and Hamdi Salihi.

    The win puts D.C. top of the East again with 33 points, after New York's draw against Toronto briefly saw the Red Bulls take pole position by a single point.

    Houston Dynamo vs Washington DC United Predictions: 2-1 United over Houston

    Even if United come in as the visitors. They will come with their usual aggressive attack. Houston’s defense isn’t strong enough to withstand United’s attack.

  5. Major League Soccer 2012 Preview: San Jose Earthquakes vs Real Salt Lake Predictions

    Earthquakes and RSL will clash on the 14th of July, Buck Shaw Stadium as the two teams vie for Western Domination. Catch real time updates on your favorite Major League Soccer 2012 Match.

    San Jose Earthquakes Preview

    San Jose is currently at the top of the Western Conference list with eleven wins, four losses and four draws tallying a total of 37 points, only one point ahead of Western second placers, Real Salt Lake, the team they will be entertaining on the 14th at the Buck Shaw Stadium. They’ve just concluded their two-game road trip playing to a scoreless draw with FC Dallas on Saturday evening in San Francisco.

    There are some notable individuals that play for the Quakes, one is Chris Wondolowskiwho once again is leading Major League Soccer in goals scored with a total of 14 points, and then you have the late match miracle man in Alan Gordon. The two mentioned are just some of the few adding to SJ’s firepower.

    Real Salt Lake Preview

    Although one rank below San Jose, RSL are just as equally dominating. Even when in times of uncertainty RSL always seem find their way through like when they recently broke out of their four-game winless run in emphatic fashion, achieving a 3-0 win against the Portland Timbers last Saturday at the Rio Tinto Stadium. Real Salt Lake currently sits in second place in the Western Conference with 36 points from 20 games. Like the Earthquakes, they are one of the few teams in the league to display consistency throughout a full season.

    However, there is a reason why RSL are almost always one step behind SJ in rankings, that reason lie within the power of attack. San Jose is absolutely the biggest scoring team in both conferences.

    San Jose Earthquakes vs Real Salt Lake Predictions: San Jose Earthquakes 4-1

    San Jose is simply the most dominant offensive team in Major League Soccer.Their 36 goals in 19 matches equals out to 1.89 per match which is the best in the league. Another factor is that in over fifty percent of their matches, they have scored multiple goals and only twice this season have they been held without scoring a goal, and perhaps the most impressive thing is their +16 goal differential over the last 30 minutes of matches where they have scored 22 goals and allowed just 6.

  6. Major League Soccer 2012 Preview: Colorado Rapids vs FC Dallas Predictions

    Two old Western rivals meet in Colorado at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park on July 14 as each team look to turn their own luck around. Catch real time updates on your favorite Major League Soccer 2012 Match.

    Colorado Rapids Preview

    The Colorado Rapids lost for the second time in as many matches, dropping a 2-1 decision to Seattle Sounders FC last Saturday evening. The Rapids are in sixth place in the Western Conference with 22 points from 18 games precisely with seven wins, ten losses and one draw. But compared to FC Dallas however, the Rapids seem to be faring somewhat better being three places higher up the rank ladder with six more points at a total of 22 points. During their last five matches, Colorado has achieved only one victory. That is a very alarming pattern, needless to say.

    The Colorado Rapids do have their hopes up and it’s in the form of newcomer, Tyson Wahl, a naturally left footed defender who stands at a height of 6 foot 2. Recently Acquired from Montreal for a 2014 international roster spot, Wahl has won the faith of Rapid’s technical director, Paul Bravo.

    “We’re excited to be able to add such an experienced player without compromising our roster flexibility as we move into the second half of the season.”, stated Bravo on Tyson Wahl’s migration to the team.

    FC Dallas Preview

    The boys from FC Dallas are on a desperate position therefor they are looking to reverse there current struggles. Dallas stands at the very bottom in the Western Conference. There have been victories for Dallas during the last five matches. Out of the nineteen games played, Dallas has acquired only three wins and seven draws.

    But the trade for midfielder Julian de Guzman can help increase FC Dallas’ scoring opportunitieswith his offensive tactics. There defensive strengh has shown a steady progress to fine tuning but attack mode is what they are lacking on at the moment considering Dallas’ leading scorer is out at the moment.

    FC Dallas saw their long winless streak continue, but played to a third consecutive draw, this time a scoreless result with the San Jose Earthquakes on Saturday evening in Frisco. FCD is in ninth place in the Western Conference with 16 points from 19 matches.

    Colorado Rapids vs FC Dallas Predictions: Colorado Rapids win 1-0

    This prediction is in all its essence, very tentative. Looking at the circumstances from different angles, both teams have shown an equal build-up in strength. What else should bottom teams do? They can’t stay where they currently are and expect to move forward, for one, Dallas is trying hard to avoid its first five game losing streak. But Dallas has demonstrated an improvement in its defences and putting de Guzman in the roster might add to their power of attack. But records all point to the Rapids as the favourite and it’s really hard to avoid numbers and follow one’s personal observation. Numbers have shown that Colorado has maintained their consistency better than Dallas.

    UEFA Champions League 2012 Preview: Flora Tallin vs FC Basel Predictions

    FC Basel starts next Champions League campaign in Estonia against Flora Tallinn on July 17. Catch real time updates on your favorite UEFA Champions League 2012 Match.

    FC Basel Preview

    Basel, the football club from Switzerland and one of the best performers of the last season in the Champions League will begin their journey early, in the second preliminary round against FC Flora Tallin from Estonia, and they are clearly the favorites to advance in the next round of the competition.

    Basel managed to get 4 points out of 2 games against Manchester United in the Group C of Champions League last season and they are in a good position to qualify this year as well for the group stage. They will have to go through two preliminary rounds and then through the play-off to enter the grop stage, but they proved they are a stong team and they could qualify.

    Flora Tallin Preview

    An Estonian football club founded in 1990 are a multiple winner of the Meistriliiga title and the Estonian Cup. They have for years been raising the most number of players for the national team. Flora Tallinn clinched the Estonian Meistriliiga title on Saturday with a 3-0 win at home to JK NõmmeKalju. Flora now have a four-point lead over second-placed FC Levadia Tallinn, who have only one game to go. This type of explosive attack driven play will definitely be effective against a team like the Swiss Basel.

    Flora Tallin vs FC Basel Predictions: Flora Tallin wins 2-1


    Regardless of how impressive of a record that FC Basel may hold, Flora Tallinn, with their power of attack will most likely prevail on the 17th of July. At home the Estonian team holds a very impressive record and have been blessed with a number of today’s top players. Last season seemed positive for FC Basel but this season will most likely hold a different story.

  9. UEFA Champions League 2012 Preview: Slovan-Liberec vs FC Shakhter Karagandy Predictions

    Slovan Liberec faces FC Shakther Karagandy on July 18 in the first leg of the Second Qualifying Rounds. Catch real time updates on your favorite UEFA Champions League 2012 Match.

    Slovan-Liberec Preview

    Liberec based on its performance on previous years, may not be the strongest team of the Czech Republic. It can be argued that for the last season, they only capitalized on a failed Sparta Praha’s performance (the team with the most championships) and Victoria Plzen’s distraction while targeting the EU cups. They won the Czech championship for only the third time in club’s history.

    Slovan Liberec though did not lose in their last six matches, managing to only draw in two of them. Their scoring average was 2.17 for the 6 games.

    FC Shakhter Karagandy Preview

    FC Shakhter Karagandy was a member of the Kazakhstan Premier League since its founding in 1995. Before winning their first championship in 2011 (the reason while they are in UEFA Champions today), they have only reached third place two times (1995 and 2007).

    Shakhter Karagandy lost two of their last six matches. Their scoring average was 2.33 for the 6 games.

    Slovan-Liberec vs FC Shakhter Karagandy Predictions: Slovan Liberec wins 2-1

    The recent performance will tell us – Slovan Liberec will take this game, but it will be a close one. Shakhter Karagandy may have had a higher average score, but these were due to extreme values on wins they had.

  10. UEFA Champions League 2012 Preview: MSK Zilina vs Hapoel Ironi Kiryat Shmona Predictions

    MSK Zilina faces Hapoel Ironi Kiryat Shmona on July 18 in the first leg of the Second Qualifying Rounds. Catch real time updates on your favorite UEFA Champions League 2012 Match.

    MSK Zilina Preview

    MSK Zilina is probably the strongest team in the Slovakian Corgon Liga. It’s currently tied with another favorite, Slovan Bratislava, for most titles held in history (six each), but leads the latter on all-time points made. Together with their rival, they were there since the start of the league.

    MSK Zilina though only lost one in their last six matches, also managing to only draw in one of them. They won all the other four games.

    Hapoel Ironi Kiryat Shmona Preview

    The current Hapoel Ironi Kiryat Shmona was founded in 2000. However, they only became a member of the Israeli Premier League since 2007. This is their first championship (the reason while they are in UEFA Champions today). Their championship, though a hardly fought one, was the first to be won by a team outside the three major cities (Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Haifa) for almost 30 years.

    With the difficulty in facing the main city giants, Hapoel Ironi Kiryat Shmona only managed to win two of their last six matches. They lost the other 4.

    MSK Zilina vs Hapoel Ironi Kiryat Shmona Predictions: MSK Zilina wins 2-1

    The recent performance will tell us – MSK Zilina will surely dominate, and it will be a possible 2-0 win.
