MLS Cup Playoffs 2012: Breaking Down Thursday’s Semifinal Action

The 2012 MLS Cup Playoffs are already underway, but Thursday’s schedule has just one matchup for soccer fans; the second leg of the Western Conference semifinals between Real Salt Lake and the Seattle Sounders FC.

These bitter rivals met three times in the regular season, but between each squad, only one goal was scored. Real Salt Lake stole the only victory gained in the series all the way back on May 12.

With another draw in Game 1 of the semifinals, to say these squads are familiar with each other is an understatement.

Something has to give, though, and Thursday is as good a day as any for the top-tier offensive talent on both teams to unwind and get their side the definitive series advantage.

There is so much on the line in this matchup that even the most causal soccer fans will be able to find serious enjoyment over this tense battle.


Where: Rio Tinto Stadium, Salt Lake, UT
