I think the best matchup will be Chivas vs New York. In their previous matchup, Chivas shocked the Red Bulls at home thanks to a Justin Braun hat trick. Braun has scored only one other goal the rest of the season so don't expect a repeat performance. New York is the highest scoring team in the league overall (1.7 goals/match) and on the road (1.6 goals/match) but Chivas has been stingy at home allowing 0.9 goals/match. On offense, Chivas has struggled to score at home with 1.1 goals per match which is actually lower than their road scoring average of 1.4 goals/match. RBNY's road defense has been their Achilles heel, allowing 1.5 goals/match.
The outcome of this match could have big playoff implications. New York and Philadelphia are neck-and-neck for the Eastern Conference title. Anything less than a point for the Red Bulls will hurt their chances of winning the conference. I'm currently projecting Chivas for the final playoff spot. Anything less than a point puts their playoff hopes in limbo.
