All MLS Playoff Spots Locked Going Into Final Week

The biggest development this weekend was the San Jose Earthquakes clinching the MLS Supporter's Shield when Sporting Kansas City and the New York Red Bulls played to a nil-nil draw.


Galaxy travel to San Jose for showdown with Quakes

With a win, the Galaxy can prevent the Earthquakes from clinching the top overall seed in the MLS playoffs.


2012 MLS Standings: Surging Galaxy Taking Aim At Second Place In West

The defending MLS Cup champion LA Galaxy has punched its ticket to the league postseason, and now is shooting for second place with four matches left to play.

Catching the first place San Jose Earthquakes, the leaders of the MLS Western Conference, is a longshot. But the Galaxy know it will be in the tournament to defend its title. The Galaxy is currently tied with Real Salt Lake for second place with 49 points and identical 15-11-4 records.

With San Jose thinking about the regular season conference title and the Supporter's Shield for most points in the entire league, the Galaxy is in solid position to take second though RSL and the Seattle Sounders are right with it in the standings.

Seattle has five matches left to play in the regular season, the Galaxy and RSL have four. Second place is important because that team would get to host a conference semifinal, while fourth place means a play-in game just to get into the conference semifinals.

2012 MLS Standings: Galaxy Remain Locked Into Fourth Place

The LA Galaxy have been idle since Sept. 1, allowing the Seattle Sounders and Real Salt Lake to extend their points leads.

The Galaxy (13-11-4) are sitting on 43 points, three behind Salt Lake and four behind Seattle. Los Angeles also still owns a solid lead over the fifth-place Vancouver Whitecaps, who have 37 points through their first 28 games.

The Galaxy will take the field again Friday against the Colorado Rapids with just six games left to lock up a playoff spot. And the remaining schedule heavily favors the Galaxy, with five of the six games being played at the Home Depot Center.

Following the Rapids match, Los Angeles has another CONCACAF Champions League match against Puerto Rico, a team the Galaxy beat, 4-0, at home in late August.

LA Galaxy Vs. Puerto Rico: Preview, TV Time & More

A win over Puerto Rico would put LA in favorable position headed towards the CCL knockout rounds. With six points, they would be at the the top of the group with visits to Puerto Rico and Metapan still to come.

In the last meeting between these two teams at the Home Depot Center, the Islanders dominated in a 4-1 victory. That game took place in the 2010 CCL preliminary round. LA will be looking for revenge this time around.
