Surprise wins, a record-setting result, and a league giant involved in high-scoring matches all highlighted the latest MLS round of games. In case you missed any of the recent action, we’ve got you covered with a quick game-by-game recap below.
While Miami grabbed three much-needed points, Atlanta’s defeat was just a sign of more negative things to come in their busy week. Atlanta hasn’t been the same since the injury to a key player and striker Josef Martinez.
Despite the fact that Minnesota earned a red card late into the game, their attacking efforts led by two goals from Kevin Molino were enough to clinch their fourth win of the season.
Thanks to a game-winner from Jozy Altidore in the 89th minute, Toronto has held onto the top spot of the Eastern Conference table. The Impact would later go on to compensate for the loss in their following battle.
The beginning of a decent week for Colorado. After clinching a late equalizer in the 96th minute of the draw, the Rapids would go on to secure a win just a few days later.
Carried by three goals — and numerous more saves by goalkeeper Andrew Putna — Real Salt Lake stunned the current holders of the 2020 MLS Supporters’ Shield.
History was made. No team has scored five goals in an MLS game faster than the Sounders who were up 5-0 by the 33th minute. Once the final whistle blew, Seattle were just one goal shy of breaking the league record for the largest margin of victory.
Moments away from an unexpected loss, Columbus’ Gyasi Zardes helped the Crew escape with a point after scoring an equalizer in the 88th minute.
In the mid-table battle for a playoff spot, the Red Bulls put themselves in a much better position after surpassing their East Coast rivals.
Now undefeated in their last five games, there appears to be something intriguing about the NYCFC roster that are now quickly making their way up the Eastern Conference table.
Little by little, Orlando are making a name for themselves. Their recent 2-1 win over their Florida rivals says plenty about their playoff potential — especially after finishing as a finalist in the MLS Is Back tournament earlier this summer.
In an exciting 2nd half that featured three goals after the 70th minute, it was the Union who emerged with three points after a thrilling end to the shootout.
Atlanta have no excuses here. Once a powerhouse in the league, they have now gone through five consecutive matches without a win.
After losing earlier in the week, things were finally starting to click for a Dallas squad that is more than capable of making a deep run in the playoffs. Having someone like Franco Jara in the starting XI doesn’t hurt either.
A fantastic end to a fantastic week for the Rapids. Their four points clinching in their last two matches have suddenly put them into the playoff conversation.
A necessary (and narrow) win for a Kansas City side that had shown some signs of weakness in recent weeks. The three points earned have pushed them back to the top of the Western Conference table.
Some welcome and good news for manager Thierry Henry. The win for the Impact is now their fourth of the regular season in their chase of a playoff berth.
There is the high-scoring LAFC that fans know and love. Once appearing to be entering a crisis, this latest victory provides some solace for those who were worried about their previous loss to Real Salt Lake.
It was a star-studded California Clasico that had everything but goals. Although the Earthquakes clearly made improvements since their 7-1 thrashing just a few days earlier, they’ll feel gutted they couldn’t find a game-winner against their rivals.
Keep an eye on the upcoming game between the San Jose Earthquakes and the Portland Timbers. Both looking vulnerable in recent days, it wouldn’t be much of a surprise if their next encounter ends in a hard-fought but a thrilling tie.
