The MLS Cup is this Sunday, December 6 at 4 p.m. ET, as the Portland Timbers travel to Columbus to take on the Crew.
Neither team was the favorite in their respective conference, but #3 Western Conference seed Portland upended top seed Dallas 5-3 on aggregate, and #2 Columbus squeaked by the #1 New York Red Bulls 2-1 on aggregate, with a last gasp shot by NYRB hitting the post at the death, which would have sent the game into extra time.
Although Columbus is hosting, Portland was able to win at Columbus, 2-1, in late September, and both teams finished with the same number of points on the season. It’s hard to see this being anything but a super-tight, down-to-the-wire game.
