It’s Decision Day in Major League Soccer, where all 26 teams will begin either at 2:30 pm or 5:30 pm (Central Time) today in the final matches of the regular season Sporting Kansas City hold their fate in their hands, beating Real Salt. Lake at Rio Tinto Stadium, Sporting will take first place in the Western Conference Lose or Draw, and they will need help from Los Angeles FC and San Jose Earthquakes to take first place in the West. Here’s how Sporting will end up in points in each match (PPG) depending on the outcome today

Most Eastern Conference matches don’t interest Kansas City a bit because teams either can’t catch Sporting at PPG to host the MLS Cup or Sporting can’t catch them to host a potential MLS Cup

Losing to Orlando City and winning by Sporting is the only way Sporting can finish it with a PPG higher than Orlando City in the regular season standings So Nashville FC’s victory here is the only Eastern Conference match that Sporting fans are looking for a specific result

Colorado Rapids is the « newest » team to head to the qualifiers as it will finish the season with just 18 games, three times less than any other team in the league after losing their first two games after their long battle with COVID. Rapids were the Kansas City favorite City, where he knocked out Seattle and Portland to finish first in the west in Sporting’s hands, heading to Decision Day. The question comes in the preliminaries at this point and whether you want to play a Rapids team that seems close to the right level at the right time. On the other side, Houston Dynamo is eliminated from the playoff game and needs to win and helps avoid ending the match at the bottom of the West.

Two reasons here, one of which is that the Los Angeles victory over Portland Timbers gives Sporting little space to breathe in terms of options to finish first in the West in second, while LAFC has struggled at times this season. It’s a team with so much offensive weapons that it They are still a scary team on paper, and facing them in the first round of qualifiers would be a tough job for anyone (Depending on possible quarantine upon return from international duty for some of these players) A LAFC win will result in them being at least fifth in the West versus Dallas or Minnesota in the first round

The winner of this game (if there is a winner) will get fourth seed in the West and host a playoff match in the first round. Draw and this venue will go to FC Dallas. The question here is about potential competitors in a Kansas City elimination match, as I mentioned in the past. , KC hasn’t had the best record against Dallas over the past few years On the other hand, Minnesota United were a team that KC had performed well against, especially at home. A Dallas win would likely drop Minnesota into sixth place if LAFC wins. (A draw and a LAFC win will do that too)

As with the Portland / LAFC match, this wish is to give Kansas City some breathing in terms of results, if KC, Portland and Seattle get the same score then KC finishes first in the West


Both teams were eliminated from the knockout race, which is the only match out of 13 taking place today that has no effect on qualifying or being placed in the play-off
