RSL to face Seattle in Western Semis

By Sam Stejskal

As I’m sure you all know by now, Sunday’s MLS results ensured that Real Salt Lake will take on Seattle Sounders FC in the Western Conference Semifinals beginning on Nov. 3.

It will be the second-consecutive year that RSL will face the Sounders in the Western Conference Semis. We all remember last year’s series: The Claret-and-Cobalt turned in a dominating 3-0 win at Rio Tinto Stadium in the first leg and held on in Seattle to win 3-2 on aggregate and advance to the Western Conference Finals.

You can check out the highlights from the first leg of last year's series above. Highlights from the second leg are here. You can buy tickets to all of RSL’s 2012 playoff games here.

We’ll be back soon to talk about RSL’s huge, must-win CONCACAF Champions League match against C.S. Herediano at Rio Tinto Stadium on Tuesday night.
