Match preview

For the first time in 19 years, the top seeds from the east and the west will contest MLS Cup.

Despite the fact these two finished first in their respective conferences, there will be a new name on the Philip F. Anschutz Trophy.

Philadelphia Union fell in the Conference Finals last season, beaten by New York City FC at Subaru Park.

Last Sunday, the two met again at the same stage and the same venue, but this time with a different result.

The Union came from behind to prevail, thanks to Julián Carranza’s cool finish, followed by emphatic strikes from Dániel Gazdag and substitute Cory Burke.

Jim Curtin’s team haven’t lost a game in Pennsylvania all season, but must now try and claim MLS’ biggest prize on the road.

LAFC meanwhile finished above Philly in the overall standings by virtue of matches won, thereby lifting their second Supporters’ Shield in four seasons.

In the last two decades, just three clubs, Columbus (2008), LA Galaxy (2011) and Toronto (2017), have gone onto win MLS Cup after hoisting aloft the shield.

To reach the final for the very first time, the Black and Gold swatted aside Austin FC in California last weekend.

Chicho Arango broke the deadlock, before a calamitous own goal and a late Kwadwo Opoku clincher sealed the victory.

Steve Cherundolo’s team have lost just two of 21 home games in 2022, looking to make home field advance count in this huge game.

Will LAFC of Philadelphia get their hands on MLS Cup for the very first time at Banc of California Stadium?
