MLS Cup Final
The GIST: For the first time in 19 years, the top teams from the Western and Eastern Conferences will face off for the MLS Cup when LAFC hosts the Philadelphia Union tomorrow at 4 p.m. ET. Battle of the best.
The tale of the tape: These clubs met one time this season, playing a nailbiter match that ultimately ended in a 2–2 draw. Both teams also finished tied for points at the end of the season. It could not be more neck and neck.
The matchup: Consider this a contest between star power and scrappiness. Riding in from the west is shiny LAFC — the Black & Gold is practically glittering with high-scorers, including soccer superstar Gareth Bale.
- Then there’s the nose-to-the-ground Union defense, anchored by three-time MLS Goalkeeper of the Year, Andre Blake.
How to tune in: It all goes down at Banc of California Stadium tomorrow at 4 p.m. ET on FOX. Prepare for some golazos.
