[MLS PREDICTIONS] Another week of nine games kicks off with a pair of intraconference matches on Wednesday, when Kansas City can leap-frong into first place in the East with a win over D.C United and Los Angeles aims for its second win of the season, at Salt Lake. All four teams playing Wednesday will also be in action during the weekend. For Soccer America's predictions for Wednesday's game, as well as TV viewing information, and to see how we've fared so far ...

KANSAS CITY (3-3-1) vs. D.C. UNITED (3-1-3), 8:30 p.m. ET, Direct Kick

United is on a roll, with seven points in the last three games, but Kansas City is fresher, having last played in Toronto 10 days ago, a 1-0 loss. The clash of Argentine catalysts -- Christian Gomez (D.C.) versus Claudio Lopez (K.C.) -- will be an interesting subplot¸ and so tight is the Eastern Conference that the fourth-place Wizards can leapfrog co-leaders United and Toronto by winning.
Prediction: Wizards 2, United 1.

REAL SALT LAKE (3-3-0) vs. LOS ANGELES (1-1-4), 9 p.m., Direct Kick
RSL is happy to come home after losing in Colorado last weekend, but is missing three key players: Javier Morales and Jamison Olave are suspended, and injured keeper Nick Rimando will be replaced by Chris Seitz. The Galaxy got its second shutout of the season last week against New York, is 0-0-2 on the road this season, and its attack is bolstered by the return to health of Edson Buddle, who played 85 minutes against the Red Bulls.
Prediction: RSL 1, Galaxy 1.

PREDICTION REVIEW
Last week: 4-3. Season: 22-30.
