The Seattle Sounders advance if they win. It's rather simple. If they lose to the Vancouver Whitecaps, or there is a goal-scoring draw then the 'Caps advance. Extra Time and possibly penalty kicks are only possible with a 0-0 draw.
I say again - win and advance, win and advance, win and advance.
Clint Dempsey returns to the MLS Cup Playoffs for the first time since 2015. He will lead an attack that scores nearly two goals a game at home against a Whitecaps defense that gives up 1.7 goals a game on the road.
Absences: Injury, international duty and suspension
Seattle: 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.
If Cristian Roldan, Aly Ghazal, and/or Nosa Igiebor earn a yellow in this match and their team advances they would be suspended in the first leg of the Western Conference Finals.
Baldomero Toledo is the center referee. Drew Fischer is the VAR.

Keys to the Game:
