From Wednesday through Sunday, some of Major League Soccer’s best rivalries will be contested.

Here is a quick look at nine of them during Rivalry Week (all times ET):

Wednesday, Aug. 22

New York City FC vs. Red Bulls (7 p.m. | FS1, FOX Deportes, TSN): NYCFC striker and 2010 World Cup winner David Villa has returned from injury as his side goes up against Red Bulls striker Bradley Wright-Phillips, who has tallied an incredible 11 goals in seven Hudson River Derby matches.

Thursday, Aug. 23

Chicago Fire vs. Columbus Crew SC (7 p.m. | ESPN+): Crew SC forward Gyasi Zardes, enjoying a renaissance season, needs one more goal to match his career high of 16 set in 2014; his next goal also would be the 50th of his MLS career.

Houston Dynamo vs. FC Dallas (9 p.m. | UniMás, UDN): Competing for El Capitán, a 19th-century Mountain Howitzer cannon, Western Conference-leading Dallas enters the Texas Derby having posted just one defeat in the past 12 meetings against the Dynamo (6-1-5 since 2013).

Friday, Aug. 24

Orlando City SC vs. Atlanta United (8 p.m. | ESPN, ESPN Deportes): Atlanta’s 25-year-old Venezuelan striker Josef Martínez has his first full-game opportunity to set a new MLS single-season goalscoring record. Martínez tied the record of 27 goals during Sunday’s 3-1 win against Columbus.

LA Galaxy vs. Los Angeles Football Club (10:30 p.m. | ESPN, ESPN Deportes): Galaxy forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic enters two goals shy of 500 career professional tallies in league play, and he will have a sold-out StubHub Center in his corner in the third installment of El Tráfico. The Galaxy are 1-0-1 against expansion LAFC, rallying on both occasions.

Saturday, Aug. 25

Toronto FC vs. Montreal Impact (8 p.m. | TSN, TVA Sports, ESPN+): The defending MLS Cup winners and recent Canadian Championship victors, ninth-place Toronto will be in search of the full three points to close the gap against a Montreal team that is clinging onto the sixth spot in the Eastern Conference – the final position for the coveted MLS Cup Playoffs.

Colorado Rapids vs. Real Salt Lake (9 p.m. | ESPN+): RSL, a nine-time winner of the Rocky Mountain Cup, leapt into fourth place in the Western Conference after earning their second road victory this past weekend. Colorado has won the Rocky Mountain Cup four times, including the first two editions in 2005 and 2006.

Sunday, Aug. 26

Red Bulls vs. D.C. United (7 p.m. | FS1, FOX Deportes): England standout Wayne Rooney has recorded three goals and two assists during D.C.’s five-game unbeaten streak (4-0-1), quickly propelling the Eastern Conference side within striking distance of a postseason position with several games in hand.

Portland Timbers vs. Seattle Sounders FC (9:30 p.m. | FS1, FOX Deportes): The longest U.S.-based series and Cascadia Rivalry features a Seattle team that touts a club-record six-game winning streak heading in. Sounders FC’s 5-0 win against the LA Galaxy on Sunday also tied for the MLS side’s largest margin of victory.
