Strong on FC Dallas vs Real Salt Lake: "This is a fun-looking clash at the top of the Western Conference standings. Real Salt Lake showed last Saturday that they deserve to be in first, as returning World Cup star Kyle Beckerman once again led the charge. FC Dallas doesn't get much of the spotlight, but new coach Oscar Pareja has led them on a remarkable charge this summer, and Tesho Akindele has bolstered his Rookie of the Year candidacy with a hat trick in their last game."
