There are just two games left this season, with playoff position still to be determined. This weekend features very important matches, as some clubs look to move up closer to the top, while others will be relieved to head to the offseason.
Two of the top teams in the west face off with playoff implications abound, as the Seattle Sounders FC take to Los Angeles to face the Galaxy in a very important showdown, and possibly playoff preview.
The Sounders are fighting for second position in the west, holding steady for the moment with 15 wins, 11 draws, and 56 points. Real Salt Lake loses a tie breaker on goal differential, but remains with 56 points too. Neither have a shot at catching the San Jose Earthquakes in first place, and neither will be caught by the fourth place team, the Galaxy.
Los Angeles will need to win to secure a spot in the postseason. They struggled early in the season but have come on strong, and now have 15 wins, six draws and 58 goals for on the season, the second most in the entire league. They conclude a tough stretch, having played Real and San Jose, and now onto Seattle, the top three contenders in the west.
After winning four straight, Los Angeles have not won in their last three, losing one and drawing two. Seattle meanwhile, takes to the road after three straight at home, winning two, drawing one, and allowing just one goal in that span.
The two teams met in Seattle in August, with the Sounders winning 4-0.
Betting lines: Los Angeles is at home and gets the edge, even against the tough Sounders. With only two games left, the Galaxy need to win and make sure they get into the postseason. They have played well late, and should outlast the Sounders who are secure in making the playoffs. The Galaxy win a big match in an offensive display, beating the Sounders 4-3.
