[MLS PREDICTIONS]
The expansion Seattle Sounders FC should make it four wins in four games, but will their shutout streak continue? The first SuperClasico pits unbeaten and untied Chivas USA against the struggling Galaxy at the HDC. For all of Soccer America's predictions, as well as TV viewing information, and to see how we fared last week ...

SATURDAY
TORONTO (1-1-1) vs. FC DALLAS (0-3-0), 4 p.m., Direct Kick
FCD hasn't settled on a backline yet and though Kenny Cooper and Dax McCarty are holding up, they need more help than they're getting, and they won't get it from TFC or its fans.
Prediction: TFC 2, FCD 1.

SAN JOSE (1-2-0) vs. CHICAGO (2-0-1), 4 p.m., TeleFutura
Fire head coach Denis Hamlett has some selection decisions, and so does the Quakes' Frank Yallop, who has promised changes after last week's desultory 2-0 loss in Kansas City.
Prediction: Quakes 1, Fire 1.

REAL SALT LAKE (1-1-0) vs. D.C. UNITED (1-0-2), 6 p.m., Direct Kick
D.C. gained some confidence by winning ugly at home last week; RSL blew out the Crew 4-1 in its home debut and looks sharper at this point.
Prediction: RSL 2, United 0.

COLUMBUS (0-2-2) vs. COLORADO (2-1-0), 7:30 p.m., Direct Kick
The Rapids have already won on the road once (Los Angeles); the Crew just don't have it together. Pablo Mastroeni vs. Guillermo Barros Schelotto will be fun to watch.
Prediction: Crew 2, Rapids 2.

HOUSTON (0-2-1) vs. NEW YORK (0-2-1), 8:30 p.m., FSC
Houston has been outscored by the Red Bulls, 6-0, in their last three meetings, and that can't go on much longer. Yet with a new face or two playing for New York the unknown rises again.
Prediction: Dynamo 3, Red Bulls 2.

SEATTLE (3-0-0) vs. KANSAS CITY (1-2-0), 10:30 p.m., Direct Kick
It will be sad when the Sounders' unblemished bubble bursts; Kansas City prevailed last week in gale-force winds against a lackluster opponent. One more week of mojo, please!
Prediction: Sounders 3, Wizards 1.

LOS ANGELES (0-1-1) vs. CHIVAS USA (3-0-0), 10:30 p.m, ESPN2
The Galaxy has the best player, Landon Donovan, but the defense is still disconnected and Chivas USA is stronger in midfield as well.
Prediction: Galaxy 1, Chivas USA 3.

Last week: 3-5. Season: 8-14.
