MLS Monday: Everything you need to know about Matchweek 10

Dallas sink Seattle, Philadelphia earn a result at LAFC, Red Bulls still winless at home

MLS: Seattle Sounders FC at FC Dallas
Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Matchweek Ten started on Wednesday with the oddball game between Cincinnati FC and Toronto, played just 3 days after they last faced each other — and then both teams played again over the weekend. MLS gonna MLS.

Top games

New Jersey Red Bulls 1 - 1 Portland Timbers
Our rivals across the Hudson are still winless at Red Bull Arena this year, but are still in second place in the Eastern Conference after evening the score in the 67th minute to grab a draw against Portland. Fun fact: This was Portland’s first goal since April 9.

CF Montréal 4 - 1 Orlando City
Orlando had an early goal taken back for offsides. Montreal’s Lassi Lappalainen missed a plum opportunity at the 35th minute: The young Fin just could not score. Orlando got a goal off a header from a corner. Seven games without a loss for Montreal? They are in good form to start the season.

LAFC 2 - 2 Philadelphia United
Philly gets a road point to keep on top of the East. LAFC is top of the West, and seem to have come alive after a dormant season last year. Hungarian international Dániel Gazdag scored for Philly first against LAFC: Getting the first goal in an away game can be important. LAFC’s Kwadwo Opoku struck back, only for the 21-year-old Julián Carranza to put Philly ahead again with a nice curling shot from outside the box. LAFC evened it when Carlos Vella’s corner was knocked in it past Philly goalkeeper Andre Blake by Franco Escobar.

FC Dallas 2 - 0 Seattle Sounders
It’s interesting to note that Seattle lost to Dallas. One moment they’re top of CONCACAF by winning the Champions League, and the next can’t beat a very good Dallas. Seattle made 10 changes from the squad that placed in the Champions League on Wednesday, but the game was lost when the regular starters were subbed in late.

Goal of the Week

Look at that arcing shot: Taxi Fountas of DC United turned goalkeeper Steve Clark into a ball-watcher.
