This is about as busy as it gets in midweek. MLS has six games scheduled, including a few intriguing matchups. There's a showdown between two of the top teams in the East and another between two of the hottest teams in the West. Wednesday might not feel like the best day to devote an entire evening to watching MLS, but this might be worth it.

United is off to their worst start since 2010 when they started 1-8-0 and finished with one of the worst season in MLS history. This hardly seems to be the week they turn it around as the Dynamo are carrying a MLS record 36-match home unbeaten streak across all competitions.

Hard as it may be to believe, this is a showdown between two teams tied for the Eastern Conference lead. The Red Bulls come in having won three straight and 4 of 5, while the Impact have lost just once in eight matches. Another cool note: Marco Di Vaio and Thierry Henry have combined for seven goals this year and are a combined age of 71.

There have been a total of 10 goals scored in the Revolution's eight games. That's a lot of boring soccer.

Every time these two teams meet, something remarkable happens. The Sounders have a five-game league winning streak against KC with an inordinate number of those wins coming on very late goals. But KC won their most important match, a controversy filled U.S. Open Cup final that was decided in penalties.

In 18 combined matches, these two teams have lost a total of twice. They have also been two of the most entertaining teams in the league. Of course, this will end up being 0-0.

What happens when a team that has a penchant for allowing late goals plays one that specializes in scoring them? Most likely something very ugly. The Earthquakes are liable to erase a 2-0 deficit and win 3-2 in stoppage time.
