While the majority of the soccer-loving community will be focused on a little US game in the Gold Cup tonight, there are two Major League Soccer games on the menu tonight. A little crazy in the scheduling but it is what it is.

Anyways, let’s get down to the quick picks for tonight’s games.

Sporting Kansas City at Philadelphia Union: This one just got a little more interesting. KC somehow gets another road game in a tough place, making 12 in the first 14 games. Something just not right about that. Anyways, Peter Vermes’ club is on a nice little roll here and they hope to catch the Union on another off-night here. It won’t be easy though, as the Union have been one of the better home teams in the league this season. Despite their tumble in Vancouver last week I think they bounce back in this one but only in a draw. KC has been playing tough as of late and will make this one interesting.

WVH Prediction: Philadelphia 1, KC 1

Real Salt Lake at Chicago Fire: Probably not the sexier matchup of the night but a decent one though. Chicago is unbeaten in their last couple while RSL is always a tough club to face. Chicago hasn’t lost since Frank Klopas took over but their offense hasn’t exactly made headlines either. Same goes for RSL’s offense as of late. I feel this one is a low scoring, physical match that sees two good defenses battle it out. RSL gets most of their main guys back from national team duty and makes the most of a late goal in this one.

WVH Prediction: RSL 1, Chicago 0
