Top games to watch on matchday eight in Major League Soccer

Cincinnati vs New York Red Bulls: Last season saw Cincinnati finish top of the pile as the club clinched the Supporters' Shield. Now, they are keen on proving that they are not a one-season wonder, and so far, things appear to be going well. Cincinnati sit top of the Eastern Conference and have yet to lose a match thus far this season, with three wins and three draws from their first six games.

Next up for them will be a clash against the New York Red Bulls, who notably crushed Inter Miami 4-0 last month. Although they come into this match having drawn Orlando City 1-1, the Red Bulls are just one point behind Cincinnati, meaning that win for the visiting side could help them jump into top spot in the Eastern Conference.

Inter Miami vs Colorado Rapids: Inter Miami have hit some bumps in the road recently, and come into their upcoming match against the Colorado Rapids winless in their last two MLS games. In addition, the Herons have some work to do in the CONCACAF Champions Cup after losing 2-1 to Monterrey in the first leg of their quarter-finals tie.

Gerardo Martino's side seem to have been given a boost as star man Lionel Messi, who missed out on his team's recent loss on Wednesday, has been included on the matchday roster for Saturday's tie. As for the Rapids, they sit seventh in the Western Conference ahead of this tie and recently ended a two game winless streak in MLS by beating Los Angeles FC 3-2.

Vancouver Whitecaps vs Toronto: It is set to be an all-Canadian affair when the Vancouver Whitecaps lock horns with Toronto on Saturday. The Whitecaps have made an early statement of intent as they have won three of their last four matches and sit second in the Western Conference, two points behind Los Angeles Galaxy. Meanwhile, Toronto, who were one of the worst-performing sides in the league last season, appeared to have found a new lease on life under new boss John Herdman, but now have been dealt a huge blow to an injury to star man Lorenzo Insigne.
