MLS Power Rankings: Matchday 6

More MLS action this weekend. St. Louis lost for the first time, LAFC were held scoreless by Colorado, Columbus curb-stomped yet another team, and Greg Vanney gave us this all-timer piece of #content.

Anyway, here’s how the model works:

  1. Points per game – 30%
  2. Goal difference – 15%
  3. Form in last five games – 15%
  4. Expected goal difference – 12.5%
  5. Strength of schedule – 12.5%
  6. Home and away form – 12.5%
  7. Goals added β€“ 2.5%
