With the final weekend of regular-season action on tap, the top spot in the Eastern Conference is still up for grabs. Sporting KC, Houston and Columbus all have a chance of taking the crown and earning homefield advantage in the playoffs, which begin next week.
Sporting are currently top of the East with 48 points, Columbus sit in third with 47 and Houston are in fifth with 46 points. (Philadelphia are in second place but have completed their schedule and so cannot finish first. The fifth-place New York Red Bulls have also completed their schedule and have no shot at first place.)
Sporting travel to D.C. United (Saturday, 7:30 pm ET, watch live online), who are playing for nothing more than pride. Columbus travel to Toyota Park to take on Chicago (Saturday, 8:30 pm ET, watch live online). And the Dynamo finish the weekend on Sunday (7 pm ET, Galavisión) hosting LA in the last regular-season game. They will have the advantage — or disadvantage — of seeing what results KC and the Crew get the day before.
So who takes the top spot?
