Matchday 15 means we’re inching closer to the midway point of the 2023 MLS season, and the table is really starting to shape up. Maybe we can start to get an idea of which teams are true contenders and who’s playing pretender. Of the 14 games across last Saturday and Sunday, the home teams made out best, per usual in MLS, with only three teams getting all 3 points on the road on matchday 15.
