Fateful day in MLS


While CF Montreal will play for a Major League Soccer (MLS) qualifier on Sunday, this will also be the case for 10 other teams.

In a day that promises to be completely crazy, 11 teams are still alive for six places available, three in each of the associations.

In the East, Atlanta United, Orlando City SC, New York Red Bulls, DC United and Columbus Crew retain their chances as do CF Montreal (12-11-10, 46 points).

If the Montreal eleven must absolutely win against Orlando (12-9-12, 48 points), DC United and the Columbus club, each with 44 points in the standings, do not have their respective fates in their own hands.

As an example, the Crew must not only win against the Chicago Fire, but also hope for a loss or a draw from Montreal against Orlando. Then, the New York Red Bulls must also lose to Nashville SC while the tiebreaker would then be the goal differential. In short, the chances of the Crew are more than slim.

Several matches to watch

As for the Western Conference, there are still five clubs vying for playoff participation: Minnesota United FC, Vancouver Whitecaps, Los Angeles Galaxy, Real Salt Lake and Los Angeles FC. The duel between Galaxy and Minnesota United FC at the end of the day is likely to be particularly interesting.

At the same time, the Whitecaps will receive a visit from the Seattle Sounders, already qualified, in Vancouver.

By comparison, on the last day of the 2020 regular season schedule, five MLS teams were vying for two final qualifiers.
