That result left the Sounders with a couple options to advance: 1) Win, or 2) Another shutout tie, which would force a shootout. Allow any Whitecaps goals, and the Sounders will have to win outright because of the MLS road-goals tiebreaker.

The Sounders finished with a draw in Vancouver, despite the absence of Clint Dempsey. The veteran attacker drew a red card in the regular-season finale, leaving him suspended for their playoff opener.

Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. PT at CenturyLink Field. Catch the match on FS1 or on the radio in English on 97.3 FM and in Spanish on 1360 AM.
