Further up the table in the East, it will be a clash of the titans as the New England Revolution travel to Kansas City with hopes of taking all three points and second place from the reigning MLS Cup holders, SKC. This Friday night game will be broadcast nationally on NBCSN at 8:00 p.m. ET.
The Western Conference could mathematically welcome a third team into the playoffs as Real Salt Lake will clinch a spot with either a win or tie against the Vancouver Whitecaps FC. Both teams come into the match on opposite sides of high-scoring results. RSL downed Colorado 5-1 at Rio Tinto Stadium, while the Whitecaps took a heavy defeat at the hands of the Portland Timbers (3-0). The defeat does not count the Whitecaps out as they sit two point below fifth-place Portland.
