Austin FC vs LAFC

The two top teams will face off on Friday night in what should be an enthralling showdown. LAFC is currently top of the Supporters Shield standings and has won 7 of its last 8 league matches. Austin has also been on good form with 4 wins in their last 8 league matches. Both teams are tied for most goals scored this season, so you might want to avoid taking a defender in your fantasy team. This matchup can go either way, so expect a great atmosphere in Austin.

Prediction: Austin FC 3-3 LAFC

Portland Timbers vs Seattle Sounders

The Cascadia will take place right after the Austin vs LAFC game as part of a Friday night doubleheader. Both Portland and Seattle are outside of a playoff spot, so expect tensions to be high. Both Portland and Seattle only have 2 wins in their last 8 matches and will be desperate for the 3 points. Just like in Austin, expect a great atmosphere in Portland, on Friday night.

Prediction: Portland Timbers 2-1 Seattle Sounders

Charlotte FC vs Toronto FC

Both Toronto FC and Charlotte FC are currently chasing a playoff spot with 7 games left in the season. Toronto has been very good since their Italian trio of Lorenzo Insigne, Federico Bernardeschi, and Domenico Criscito joined the club. Toronto also won the reverse fixture 4-0 back in July. Charlotte FC has been poor over the last few months and could struggle against this high-flying side.

Prediction: Charlotte FC 1-3 Toronto FC

FC Cincinnati vs Columbus Crew

The latest edition of this enthralling rivalry will surely not disappoint. Both of these sides are scrapping for a playoff spot and will be giving their all. Both sides have only lost one of their last 8 matches so expect a very close game. The match could very well come down to the superstar matchups of Lucas Zelarayan vs Luciano Acosta and Cucho Hernandez vs Brandon Vazquez.

Prediction: 1-1

Orlando City vs NYCFC

This Sunday night showdown should be very interesting as it is a matchup between two very talented, yet struggling sides. Orlando has only won 3 of their last 8 matches. While NYCFC had a good spell in July, they have only won one of their last 4 games in the month of August. NYCFC and Orlando will be desperate to regain their form so expect some drama, just like there was when this fixture took place in the 2020 playoffs.
