A look at the upcoming games
San Jose Earthquakes (5-4-7, 22 pts) @ Chicago Fire (2-7-5, 11 pts), 8 p.m. ET (UniMás; UDN)
Chris Wondolowski has been away with the U.S. national team since May 22 and San Jose has scored three goals in the subsequent five games. Now that he's back, the Earthquakes will look to end a six-game winless streak against a team whose only two wins in their last five have come in the U.S. Open Cup. Although Wondolowski has returned, the Quakes will be without Victor Bernardez, who injured his right knee eight minutes into last Saturday's 1-1 draw with Los Angeles and had to come off after playing every minute so far this season. Chicago at least comes in with the momentum of Tuesday's 2-1 Open Cup win over Columbus on two goals by David Accam, who's scored in four of the Fire's last five games (including two Open Cup games). This will be Chicago's first home game in MLS since May 28. It's 2-2-3 in Toyota Park.
D.C. United (5-6-5, 20 pts) @ Real Salt Lake (8-5-3, 27 pts), 10:30 p.m. ET (UniMás, KMYU)
Goalkeeper Bill Hamid has earned three shutouts in four games since recovering from his knee injury to start the season, and D.C. will need him in form to end its woeful 0-7-1 record in Utah since winning on its first trip there in 2005. On the offensive side, Alvaro Saborio will make his first appearance at Rio Tinto Stadium since being dealt to DCU in the middle of last season. D.C. enters the game having ended its three-game goalless streak – including a penalty kick loss to NASL side Fort Lauderdale in the Open Cup -- with a 2-0 win over New England last week. RSL will look to recover from being bounced from the Open Cup on Tuesday by Seattle on penalties and having scored only two goals in its last three games overall.
