The MLS regular season drama continues in Week 18 with a shortened slate coming your way.
Two of the top in-form teams in MLS will face off on Saturday as St. Louis City SC pays a visit to Nashville SC. Both of these teams earned draws in Week 17 and will be looking to secure three points in this interconference showdown.
After a hot start to the season, the New England Revolution has hit a tough run of form, only winning once of their last five matches. They’ll be hoping to turn things around this weekend against an Orlando City side that is riding a five-match unbeaten streak.
Elsewhere, Sporting Kansas City will put its surging form to the test against defending league champs LAFC at Children’s Mercy Park.

Nashville SC has not lost a league match since April 15 and most importantly are claiming important results at Geodis Park.
Gary Smith’s squad have won six of their seven home matches to date, losing just once in front of their supporters. Hany Muhktar is again in the MVP hunt with ten goals to his name so far in 2023. Mukhtar remains key for Nashville SC, who will be without leading defender Walker Zimmerman due to international duty.
Despite dropping points in Week 17, St. Louis CITY SC’s shock season has continued as they sit top of the Western Conference through 16 matches played. Bradley Carnell’s men have failed to win each of their last two matches in MLS play, also suffering a 2-0 road loss to FC Dallas.
Nicholas Gioacchini and Eduard Lowen have 11 combined goals for the expansion side this season.
