Last Word SC Radio: MLS Cup Playoffs Semifinals Leg One Updates
First we recap what happened in the various Leg 1 games from Sunday to Tuesday. We talk about the boring 0-0 Western Conference games. We discuss Columbus Crew SC’s big 4-1 win at home against a 10-man New York City FC team. The guys also chat about Toronto FC getting a 2-1 win at Red Bull Arena despite the colorful language.
In segment two, we preview the Leg 2 games. We discuss whether New York Red Bulls and NYCFC have any chance of advancing with their first leg deficits. The guys discuss what Seattle Sounders FC, Portland Timbers, Vancouver Whitecaps FC, and Houston Dynamo need to do to advance.
Then in the Round Table, we’ve got some rapid fire topics and we make our final predictions for the Conference Semifinals.
