Gameweek 377: Sorare MLS top performers

St Louis went top of the MLS Western Conference after overcoming Houston Dynamo 3-1 at home, while previous leaders Seattle Sounders were held to a goalless draw at home by Portland in Gameweek 377.

LAFC remain three points off the top but have a lot of games in hand due to their participation in the CONCACAF Champions League final - which they lost last week - while the teams at the top of the Eastern Conference continued their fine runs, with Philadelphia Union and Nashville making it four wins on the bounce each, and FC Cincinnati making it six to stay top.

Each week 101 Great Goals will look at the best performing players in each position in Sorare MLS to give you an insight into which players might be worth considering as we head into the next gameweek.


Roman Burki - 77

It was a third win on the bounce for St Louis thanks to the clean sheet they kept against Houston and it was another strong performance from Burki in what has been an inconsistent season in goal. He has fluctuated from scores as low as 12 to highs of 96 in GW 373, but his 77 against Houston means he now has an L5 of 61. The goalkeeper made four saves, three of which were from inside the box, made one punch and one high claim to take a fine goalkeeping rating of 17 on the day.

Burki’s breakdown of Sorare points in the game was:

  • General: 0
  • Goalkeeping: 17
  • Possession: 0.1
  • Attack: 0
  • Decisive: 60


Matt Real - 93

Real is the second member of the St Louis backline to make it into the top performers of the Gameweek, claiming an assist to give him a season’s best score of 93 against Houston. The defender is far from a regular at the back but made his presence felt with a brilliant score - thanks in large part to a role further forward than he is accustomed to - in just his fourth start of the season. He has an L15 of 41 so the 93 was the exception rather than the norm, but he was able to pick up defensive points as well as attacking ones after playing on the wide left.

Real’s breakdown of Sorare points in the game was:

  • General: 12
  • Defence: 10.5
  • Possession: 9.7
  • Attack: 1
  • Decisive: 60


Eduard Lowen - 96

No surprises that there is another St Louis player in the high rollers this week due to their dominant win, and for Lowen it was a continuation of his fine recent form. Following scores of 74 and 71 in his last two outings, Lowen followed it up with a fine score of 96 - not quite his highest of the season - after netting his third goal in as many games, which is already the best goalscoring return of his career. As a deep-lying midfielder goals are not typically his currency, but with five to his name and three assists so far this season he is a man in form.

Lowen’s breakdown of Sorare points in the game was:

  • General: 2.5
  • Defence: 9
  • Possession: 5.5
  • Attack: 18
  • Decisive: 60


Rubio Rubin - 93

Real Salt Lake got the three points against Austin thanks to two goals from Rubin, his first two of the season to give him a season’s best score of 92. It means Rubin has already scored more goals than he did last season and with two scores of 66 and 92 in his last three games, he appears to have struck a good run of form with two goals and an assist in that period. His performance against Austin came through playing up front rather than wide left which he has become accustomed to in recent Gameweeks.

Rubin’s breakdown of Sorare points in the game was:

  • General: 3
  • Defence: 0
  • Possession: 6
  • Attack: 13.5
  • Decisive: 70
