We all know the feeling: when the best teams win, everyone says “good job!” but you’re stuck with the worst team because they were always better.
It’s a frustrating experience that comes with the territory of being a sports fan.
With the MLS Cup final right around the corner, you can’t help but feel for the team that got it wrong.
You know how much of a fan you are, and the final of the MLS Championship Series is the best one yet.
In case you didn’t catch the playoffs, you could be looking at a wildcard berth.
Now is the time to give it a shot.
The New York Red Bulls have been the favorites in every final, winning six of their last seven and setting a new league record with 12 wins.
With their impressive start, they’re set to face off against the Los Angeles Galaxy in the second leg of the conference final.
The Red Bulls should take the lead in the first leg, winning 2-0 on Wednesday night.
The Red Bulls are a solid team.
They’re built for success, with Jozy Altidore, Sacha Kljestan, Bradley Wright-Phillips and Dax McCarty having proven themselves to be elite talents.
The offense has also been solid, with Dax and Altidoring making up for a lack of production in midfield.
But with so many injuries, the Red Bulls can’t afford to be complacent.
The Galaxy, on the other hand, have a lot of work to do.
The Galaxy are a team built on superstars, but that didn’t help them in the league standings.
They lost their best player, Giovani dos Santos, to injury in the summer, and while they are now just two points back of second place, their defense remains a major question mark.
They also lost Giovani to injury, which could be a major concern for them in their playoff run.
The only thing that’s certain in the playoffs is that the Galaxy will be favored by a large margin.
The New York team has been one of the best in the conference, while the Galaxy are looking to make a statement.
If the Galaxy win, the two teams could face off in the semifinals.
If they lose, it could be another tight series.
If either team is favored, then this could be an epic series.
