The Daily Wiz Game Preview

SKC Matchday 1 Recap: Sporting Kansas City comes into their home opener off of their narrow victory over DC United on a CJ Sapong header in stoppage time. SKC was 9-2-6 (W-L-D) at home last year, capturing the second largest home points tally in their history.

The Bent Musket Game Preview

Matchday 1 Recap: The Revolution dropped their first game of the year to the San Jose Earthquakes 1-0 on an almost expected Chris Wondowlowski goal. For the Revolution's new coach Jay Heaps that was his debut match and they'll be looking not only to improve on last week's loss but continue their streak of impressive performances against Sporting Kansas City.
