To go along with a big win against San Jose, Kansas City got some help elsewhere around the league too. The Houston Dynamo continued to play the spoiler role defeating the Portland Timbers, which allowed KC to jump back into fifth place. Dallas and Colorado both earned road draws against Salt Lake and Vancouver which allowed KC to close the gap for fourth to just two points on the former and extend their lead on the later to eight points with three games to play for the Whitecaps. Today there's another huge game with playoff implications for KC. There's also an Eastern Conference match up that has pretty much no meaning to KC.
Seattle at Los Angeles
What we want to happen - LA win
While LA not sits just five points ahead of KC in third place in the Western Conference, Seattle is the team to watch out for in the Western Conference. The Sounders are in some of the best form of any team in the league at this point and still have six games left. They're outside the playoffs on 35 points right now, but with their games in hand could easily close the gap, so KC fans are rooting for the Galaxy to take all three today.
