POWER RANKINGS: MLS Week 15 Roundup

FC Dallas 2-0 loss to Portland on Saturday left a bad taste in every FC Dallas fan’s, player’s and coach’s mouth. Athletic amnesia is a good thing right now as the club has two games in five days with a Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup fourth round match against the Tulsa Roughnecks on Wednesday, June 13 and another western conference matchup against the Vancouver Whitecaps on Saturday, June 17.

FC Dallas is solidly in fourth place in the west while the Whitecaps are currently in fifth place in the western conference and are 3-2-0 in their last five games. Vancouver was off last weekend.  Remember, only six MLS teams were in action last weekend.

Time for the latest edition of our MLS Power Rankings Roundup.

MLS

1. Toronto FC (no change)
2. Chicago Fire (+2) 
3. FC Dallas (-1) - A loss to the Timbers probably just means a temporary ding, especially when they’ll get nascent USMNT megastar Kellyn Acosta back home.
4. New York City FC (-1)  
5. Sporting Kansas City (no change)
14. Vancouver Whitecaps (-1) - Down this week through no fault of their own, the rested ‘Caps have a great opportunity to move back up with a home game against a Dallas team playing its third game in eight days across all competitions.

Soccer America

1. Toronto FC (no change)
2. Chicago Fire (no change)
3. New York City FC (no change)
4. Sporting Kansas City (no change)
5. LA Galaxy (+1)
6. Vancouver (no change)
7. FC Dallas (-2) - Shorthanded by callups and injuries, FCD fell to its third loss in the last five games. Roland Lamah was denied a goal by a great save, Mauro Diaz continued his comeback from injury by playing the final 26 minutes, and Cristian Colman maintained his goalless record in MLS by squandering an excellent opportunity.
