MLS Week 16 power rankings: RSL sits on top after convincing win over Chivas

Published: Tuesday, June 19 2012 5:58 p.m. MDT

After a two-week international break, Major League Soccer returned last weekend. Every team is in action this week, and most teams in the league will play twice in a half-week span. Key top-of-the-standings matchups include Real Salt Lake hosting San Jose, Seattle hosting San Jose and New York hosting D.C. However, with teams further down the standings getting results on their returns to league play last weekend — such as Montreal smacking Seattle 4-1 and Los Angeles getting a crucial win against Portland — the league is as tight as it has ever been.
