Toronto FC vs. Chivas: early predictions

CONCACAF Champions League

Which is better: Liga MX or MLS?

Liga MX
 By Jason Davis

Dallas No. 1, Houston rises as Timbers and Impact fall in MLS Power Rankings

No change at the top in our Major League Soccer Power Rankings, though the margin is getting smaller between FC Dallas and Toronto FC. The Portland Timbers take a four-spot drop after a home draw, while both the Houston Dynamo and Atlanta United make strong moves up the board.

1. FC Dallas (no change)
Dallas holds on to the top spot -- just barely -- with a 1-1 draw against New York City FC that keeps its unbeaten start to the season alive. Kellyn Acosta continued his push into the MLS elite with his performance.

2. Toronto FC (no change)
Another six-point week for Toronto and now the winning streak is at six matches after beating Columbus Crew SC 2-1 and Minnesota United 3-2. The Reds have barely had time to breathe during the run and have showed off incredible depth.

3. Sporting Kansas City (+2)
Dom Dwyer's suspension gave 20-year-old Latif Blessing a chance and he didn't waste it with a pair of goals in the 2-2 draw with Orlando City SC.

4. Columbus Crew SC (+2)
Justin Meram's hat trick in the 3-2 win over the Montreal Impact puts him on seven goals for the year -- just one off his career high. Crew SC's firepower is keeping the team in games.

5. Orlando City SC (-2)
Orlando's home winning streak came to an end in an entertaining 2-2 draw against Sporting, dropping the Lions into third place in the Eastern Conference standings and fifth here.

6. Houston Dynamo (+3)
After a 2-1 win over the Vancouver Whitecaps, the Dynamo are now tied for first in the West based entirely on their play at home, where they are 6-0-1 with a 13-plus goal difference.

7. New York City FC (no change)
NYCFC scrapped for a road point in Frisco, where little-used Tommy McNamara played the hero with a net-crashing goal in the 1-1 draw.

8. Portland Timbers (-4)
Portland was outplayed by Atlanta in the 1-1 draw at home, but still managed a point -- and without Darlington Nagbe in the lineup. On the flip side, Diego Valeri was kept quiet.

9. New York Red Bulls (-1)
The Red Bulls' 3-1 loss at home to the LA Galaxy will trouble fans, and it also brought an end to the club's 19-game home unbeaten run.

10. Chicago Fire (+2)
The trend is upward in Chicago and that is not something anyone could say about the Fire in recent years. The crowd in Bridgeview is evidence and they certainly enjoyed a 4-1 win over the Seattle Sounders.

11. San Jose Earthquakes (-1)
Parity reared its head in the Quakes' results over the past two weeks: A 3-0 thrashing of Portland and 3-0 loss to the lowly Colorado Rapids.

12. Atlanta United (+3)
Atlanta left Portland feeling like it should have had more than a point after a 1-1 draw. That's an improvement over last week and a sign that maybe the expansion side is adapting.

13. Seattle Sounders (-2)
Ten points from 10 games might cause a bit of panic for most teams, but even after a 4-1 loss to Chicago there's still reason to think the Sounders will get much better.

14. D.C. United (-1)
United let themselves get pushed around at home against the Philadelphia Union in a 4-0 loss that was made worse by Luciano Acosta's silly red card.

15. Vancouver Whitecaps (-1)
Straight-at-goal Vancouver ran into a team who does it better in a 2-1 loss at Houston. The Whitecaps had won two in a row on the road coming into the match.

16. New England Revolution (+2)
The Revs took advantage of a Real Salt Lake team that limped into Foxboro short-handed to win 4-0. Will it jump-start their season?

17. Minnesota United (no change)
The Loons were nearly there, just minutes away from a massive, confidence-building point on the road when their defense let them down and they fell to a 3-2 defeat to Toronto.

18. Philadelphia Union (+1)
A team with no wins as recently as May 5 now has two -- and a winning streak to go with it. The latest was a fine 4-0 victory at D.C. United.

19. LA Galaxy (+2)
A win like that, 3-1 on the road in New Jersey where the Red Bulls never lose, could not have come at a better time. Maybe Curt Onalfo's message is getting through.

20. Montreal Impact (-4)
Montreal has a bad habit of losing shootout games at home. This time, it was a crushing 3-2 defeat to Columbus, and it's got the team sitting in last place in the East.

21. Colorado Rapids (+1)
The Rapids need Shkelzen Gashi to score goals if they're going to pull themselves out of the regression that has taken hold in 2017. A 3-0 win over San Jose was a good start.

22. Real Salt Lake (-2)
It's probably not fair to judge Mike Petke quite yet. With the injuries and absences RSL is dealing with, it's hard to know how good (or bad) his team might be. But a 4-0 loss to the Revs will hurt.
