MLS Playoffs Wild Card Round Gamethread

The original plan was to have these two matches on the same day, but snowfall in Denver pushed the Colorado Rapids v Columbus Crew game back to tomorrow. We'll bump the thread for that one. Tonight's match should be more entertaining as preseason favorites New York Red Bulls travel down to Frisco, Texas to face off against the fading FC Dallas. If end of season form is an indication maybe Red Bull are the favorites. If being a complete team over the season is meaningful than Hyndman's men will take advantage of home field and get a win.

MLS is streaming tonight's game at 7PM. Yes, it isn't on TV, but their stream is free - small yeah.

Staff here have the first wild card game with as a slight Dallas favorit with 4 of 7 picking them. Tomorrow's game leans to the Western team as well with 5 of 7 picking the Rapids, though that will please a lot fewer of us. Of note, one writer picked Red Bull to win it all.

If you are watching the games, and really if you love the sport how could you not? Ok, there's plenty of reasons not to, but this is a game between two teams that have the potential to be quite good.

On Wednesday the Red Bulls beat FC Dallas 2-0 to advance and face the Los Angeles Galaxy in the next round.
