MLS Cup trophy 2

With all to play for, which Western Conference team has the tougher run-in?

March, April, May, June and July are history, and so we now stare toward the final few months of the 2016 regular season, which will contain every ounce of drama one has come to expect from Major League Soccer.

FC Dallas leads the way in the Western Conference, and Supporters' Shield standings, having replaced the Colorado Rapids just a few weeks ago. They, though, have played three more games than their closest rivals, the Rapids and LA Galaxy. (STANDINGS)

Dallas have 10 games remaining, and sit on 44 points, with the Rapids (38) and LA (36) both having 13 games to play.

And, as you will see from the table below, Dallas, Colorado and LA all meet each other over the remaining games, but which of the six teams currently occupying a playoff spot has the most testing stretch between now and October 23?

The Rapids will hope that they trigger a tough spell for Dallas, when the teams meet in Frisco on September 10. Dallas follow this with trips to New York City and Real Salt Lake, before a home game against the Galaxy.

For Colorado, their match at NYCFC last weekend was the first of six road matches over the course of nine games, while the Galaxy go to Yankee Stadium, Real Salt Lake, Sporting Kansas City and FC Dallas in the coming months.

Next up for the Rapids is a home game against Vancouver Whitecaps FC this Saturday (7:00 p.m MT). For tickets, click HERE, or call 303-825-GOAL.
