Here’s a look back at all the action, who won, drew, and lost, where the teams sit in the standings, and what’s in store for week seven!

Week Six of 2022

Week six saw 24 of the 28 teams play league matches. Seattle and NYCFC postponed their matches this week to later dates in the season as both teams focused on the Concacaf Champions League (CCL) semifinals. Seattle won the first leg at home over NYCFC 3-1, with the return leg being played in New Jersey this coming week to see who will go to the CCL final! The rest of MLS played in some thrilling matches that had the good, the bad, and the ugly. Philadelphia, Chicago, and LAFC enter the weekend unbeaten, and only Philly would end the weekend that way. Here’s a look at highlights from week six.
