New, 302 comments

Leg 1 of the Western Conference Semis is on ESPN at 5:30 PM. Watch with us.

MLS: Seattle Sounders FC at Vancouver Whitecaps FC Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Sports

This is the introduction. It’s where you read words about a 2-leg aggregate goal series with away goals being a tie-breaker. It’s where you get hyped for two Cascadia opponents meeting in the playoffs. It is where you are reminded that the Seattle Sounders hold the MLS Cup and finished 2nd in the West. It is where you recall that Vancouver Whitecaps have three former Sounders, and a third place finish.

It’s where you are reminded that 5:30 PM is when ESPN switches to soccer, but kickoff will be several minutes later.

Next is other key information to get you ready for the game:

Absences: Injury, international duty and suspension

Seattle: Clint Dempsey is suspended. Brad Evans and Jordan Morris are out. Osvaldo Alonso, Victor Rodriguez and Gustav Svensson are questionable.

Vancouver: Matias Laba and David Edgar are on the Disabled List.

No players are in danger of accumulation, yet. Players with two yellow cards during the first three rounds of the MLS Cup Playoffs would be suspended a single game. That resets for the MLS Cup Final.

Kevin Stott is the center referee. Mark Geiger is the VAR.
