Here are the MLS playoff standings heading into the final week of the regular season. As yo can see, the Sounders could still finish as high as fifth or as low as eighth.
However, positioning is the only mystery that has remained into the final week. The eight playoff-bound teams became a done deal yesterday when Kansas City fell out of the race, and Colorado clinched. Also, the Rapids' 3-1 win over LA kept Supporters Shield in doubt until the end.
The Sounders are off today, will practice tomorrow for their Tuesday CONCACAF Champions League match against Saprissa, and will conclude the MLS regular season Saturday at Houston.l
