Mini-midweek update because last night messed with the top of the PPG standings:
Dallas now tops the league after beating Atlanta, and RB tops the East.
A commenter in the recap of the Dallas-Atlanta game on the MLS site asked if Atlanta has beaten any teams above the red line. They have, but it led me to ask how the really top teams have fared against each other. I drew the line at the top 7 PPG teams — all with a PPG of 1.70 or higher.
RB 4-0-0 3.00 Remaining 3H2A
POR 2-1-3 1.50 Remaining 1H2A
FCD 2-2-2 1.33 Remaining 1H2A
SKC 1-1-1 1.33 Remaining 3H3A
NYC 2-2-3 1.29 Remaining 2H0A
ATL 1-3-3 0.86 Remaining 0H1A
LAFC 0-3-2 0.40 Remaining 2H2A
The Red Bulls record is impressive, even given that 3 of the 4 have been at home. They are quite fortunate in that they play all the top West teams at home this year: Dallas, LAFC, Portland, and SKC. Atlanta has not done well but has just one such game left in Harrison. LAFC has no wins against top teams. SKC still has 6 to go.
