Recently I was disappointed not to be able to find any information on the record of the two conferences in head-to-head matchups last year. I decided to just do it myself this year. Each 10 teams in the East play each 10 in the West once which works out to 100 games and that’s not too hard if you tally as it goes. Since we’re focused on the East, all records, etc will be from the standpoint of that conference.
All Records are in standard MLS format W-L-T.
Week 1 – 6 Games
East Record 1-3-2
At Home 0-0-1
On Road 1-3-1
Goal Differential -5
East Points 5
West Points 11
One week. Small sample size. Significant imbalance home/away. I wouldn’t read much into this yet.
Next week 0 interconference games. On average there should be 3 each week.
