Sounders FC’s Clint Dempsey, with eight goals, is at the top of the mountain right now in the MLS Golden Boot race — something particularly impressive since he was suspended for two games.
And with most teams are about 25 percent through the regular season, the guys at MLSsoccer.com decided to look at the top scorers around the league and who might finish on top at the end of the year.
It’s an interesting debate when you consider guys like Dempsey and Real Salt Lake forward Alvaro Saborio will miss about five to six games due to this summer’s World Cup in Brazil. Others aren’t expected to miss any time.
|Clint Dempsey||7||Sounders FC||8|
|Erick Torres||9||Chivas USA||7|
|Bradley Wright-Phillips||9||New York Red Bulls||6|
|Joao Plata||6||Real Salt Lake||5|
|Alvaro Saborio||9||Real Salt Lake||5|
|Chris Wondolowski||7||San Jose||5|
Here is the video from the guys at the league website. Do you have any thoughts on how the race might play out?
