Major League Soccer: Week 20 power rankings

Published: Tuesday, July 17 2012 2:34 p.m. MDT

It's midsummer, which means Major League Soccer's All-Star Game and European teams' preseason American tours are in full swing. This week, Chelsea is in Seattle, PSG joins the Blues in New York and Liverpool is in Toronto. For a full schedule of friendlies, see the MLS website.
Meanwhile, on the league front, teams are starting to position themselves for the playoffs. Balancing a congested schedule with tired legs becomes more of a factor now, as players reach the mid-season slog. For players, it's hard to find meaning in a July game in Montreal or a tough trip to Texas, but it's the results now that will matter come November.
