MLS Cup Playoffs 2013: Key to Victory for Each Team in Conference Championships

After a two-week break, the MLS Cup Playoffs get back underway this weekend.

In the Eastern Conference, Sporting Kansas City host the Houston Dynamo. After a 0-0 first leg, the second leg should provide plenty of entertainment. And with no away goals rule, Sporting KC won't have to worry about a major uphill battle if they concede an early goal.

On the other side, Real Salt Lake carry with them a 4-2 lead from the first leg when they travel to Portland to take on the Timbers for the Western Conference title. Even a two-goal lead isn't safe when you consider how raucous and boisterous the crowd will be at Jeld-Wen Field.

In order for each team to get through to the final, they'll have to make sure they follow through on these keys to the game.
