The Los Angeles Galaxy clinched a playoff spot with its win over Colorado last week.
According to MLS, the Sounders can join them this weekend ... but they'll need help.
Here's what needs to happen:
Seattle Sounders FC will clinch a berth in the MLS Cup Playoffs IF:
· Seattle defeats D.C. United AND
o Portland loses to New England AND
o Houston loses to either Columbus OR San Jose this week
No team can be mathematically eliminated from playoff contention based on results from games in the coming week.
