Sounders Insider

Sounders off, but two MLS matches to watch today

LogoMLSThe Sounders are off today. No training until tomorrow, when they fly out for Mexico.

However, there is a pretty full Major League Soccer schedule this weekend, including a couple of televised ones that could be of interest to Sounders fans.

At 4:30 p.m., NBCSN will show the Western Conference rivalry between Colorado and Real Salt Lake.

And at 7:30 p.m., Houston's visit to Portland will be shown on Root Sports.

And as a probably-unnecessary reminder: the Chivas USA visit to CenturyLink Field that was listed for Sunday on the original MLS schedule has been

postponed until September

to allow the Sounders to focus on the CCL semifinal series, which concludes Tuesday at Santos Laguna.
