Top games to watch on matchday nine in Major League Soccer

Portland Timbers vs Los Angeles: Portland Timbers will hope that their performance to turn a 3-0 deficit in to a 3-3 draw will be the springboard they desperately need when Los Angeles come to town on Saturday. That result avoided what would have been a fourth consecutive loss in MLS for Phil Neville's team, but they will likely face a tough test against a Los Angeles side who are full of confidence after winning 2-1 against cross-town rivals LA Galaxy in last weekend's Los Angeles Derby.

Montreal vs Cincinnati: Neither Montreal nor Cincinnati come into this game in the best run of form, albeit Montreal's is definitely way more concerning. Not only do Saturday's hosts head into this tie having suffered a 5-0 mauling at the hands of Seattle Sounders, but also are on a three game losing streak. Meanwhile, Cincinnati, who surprised everyone with their performance last season that saw them clinch their first ever Supporters' Shield, have hit a snag and will be hoping to avoid further sliding down the table after failing to win their last two matches.

Kansas City vs Inter Miami: After a poor showing in the CONCACAF Champions Cup, Inter Miami will need to re-find their footing when they travel to face Kansas City on Saturday. The Herons, who started the season off brightly, have been in a rut as of late and come into this game having failed to win their last three MLS matches. Including their back to back losses to Monterrey in the Champions Cup, Gerardo Martino's men are winless in their last five across all comps ahead of their upcoming match against Kansas City, who sit seventh in the Western Conference following a 3-3 draw against Portland Timbers last weekend.
