MLS schedule, live stream, how to watch online, storylines: St. Louis City SC look to stay hot
MLS action returns this weekend after a failure in the Concacaf Champions League where MLS teams had a hard time scoring goals but Los Angeles and Vancouver Whitecaps scored eight goals each while Philadelphia Union, Orlando City and Austin. . But Austin was the only team to lose mid-week, losing 3-0 to Haitian team Violetta. This is another year that most MLS teams can make it out of the Champions League round of 16, but will it come back to bite them for returning to home games this weekend?

St. Louis City strives to be perfect
At the moment, two games and two wins have been played in MLS for St. Louis City. They’ve been lucky with opponents passing the ball to them from good positions, but you also create your own luck in football and they’ve done enough to keep things going in the right direction. The team was supposed to open Citypark with a party and so far they have been a welcome addition to the league. Faced with a Portland Timbers team that struggled in their early games but would also be pretty dangerous if Evander can settle in, it will be tough for St. Louis to get three wins out of three.
Inter Miami, Seattle Sounders and the New England Revolution are the only other teams to have two wins in two games played this season, so St. Louis is already in good company to start the season.
Jordan Morris is back?
After staying a second with the Sounders, missing out on the playoffs and losing the Club World Cup earlier than expected, the team quickly put it behind them, and Jordan Morris is the main reason for this. After scoring three goals in two games, Morris showed a agility and confidence not seen since he broke his anterior cruciate ligament. Entering his prime, a healthy Morris could dominate MLS and the Saunders will need him this weekend against Cincinnati FC without Heber.
The real Austin, please stand up?
Heading to Utah to face Real Salt Lake, it will be a game that Austin is expected to win, but their early comeback this season hasn’t been promising. This team is only a few months away from finishing second in the Westen Conference, but they have already lost to the extended team and were defeated 3-0 in the CONCACAF Champions League game. It’s still early so they could be canceled and the team is also not at risk of missing the playoffs right now due to expansion, but the longer this flounder goes on, the harder it will be for Josh Wolf to pull them out of a tailspin. .
