Though it once looked as though the Los Angeles Galaxy would run away with the Supporters' Shield trophy, given to the team in MLS with the best regular season record, the race has heated up in the final run-in.
Four teams sit within four points at the top of the table. Los Angeles and the Columbus Crew, who meet each other this weekend in California, top the table with 44 points. Last season's MLS Cup champions Real Salt Lake sit only a point back.
Trailing by four points is FC Dallas, in the midst of an MLS-record unbeaten streak and with a game in hand.
