Who will win MLS season 2021?

MLS President and Deputy Commissioner Mark Abbott has confirmed that 2021 Major League Soccer season will begin in early March. The 26th season will welcome Austin FC, an expansion club, as the 27th team entering the competition.

The Sports Business Journal earlier claimed that the MLS 2021 will commence in April due to the coronavirus lockdown, but that seems unreal due to a crowded international calendar that includes the CONCACAF Nations League finals, the CONCACAF Gold Cup, qualifying and possible participation in the Tokyo Olympics, and the start of World Cup qualifying rounds. This is why, the league is eyeing for a traditional date for its commencement.

The upcoming season will have teams playing in home markets and without bio-secure bubbles. While on the other hand, COVID-19 is spreading at an alarming rate across the US.

Season favourites:

Teams that are favourites to win the 2021 MLS season are:

Seattle Sounders

Seattle Sounders are perhaps one of the most popular MLS teams across the US and Canada. And their stunning gameplay backs their reputation as well. They have reached the MLS Cup final for the fourth time in last five years.  The city also a unique record to their name which is playing 12 playoff seasons in a row, since the club's formation back in 2009.

They are a formidable side with three goal-scoring giants: Jordan Morris, Raul Ruidiaz and Nicolas Lodeir. Their chemistry on the field makes it easy to send the ball behind the net more often and leave the opposition astonished.

Usually, Ruidiaz is extremely lethal in the playoffs and he could be the Sounders’ trump card.

Los Angeles Galaxy

Los Angeles Galaxy and their scenic routes to the top are no surprise. Being the club with the most MLS trophies (5), one can never count them out. The star-studded side will look to make the most of Mexican forward Javier Hernández and put opposition under pressure in the early games of the season in 2021.

Columbus Crew

Columbus Crew will be coming into the new season with high spirits after showing last year what can happen with just a little hope.

They faced the Seattle Sounders without two of their most key players, but turned the tables with the help of Lucas Zelarayan and Derrick Etienne. Crew are defined by their ability to rise from the dead and defy odds. Hence, they are strong favourites for the MLS 2021.

Philadelphia Union

Philadelphia Union, being the unexpected winners of the Supporters Shield, are surely in a good position to win it all. Moreover, the team is headed to the Concacaf Champions League for the first time in club's history. The side is heavily dependent on building a youth academy instead of other high-profile franchises that focus on high-priced acquisitions to become decent competitors.
