The Daily Dirt, October 26: Say It Right

The road to MLS Cup starts tonight

MLS: Chicago Fire at Toronto FC John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports

The MLS postseason gets underway tonight with Philadelphia visiting Toronto (7:30 p.m. on ESPN2) and RSL heading to the StubHub Center to face the Galaxy (10:30 p.m. on UniMas).

Our Roundtable preview for the Knockout Round will be posted later this morning with everyone’s predictions.

One stat to keep in mind for the next two nights, home teams are 10-2 in the Knockout Round in MLS history. This format started in 2011 with one game in each conference and expanded to two games last year when two more teams were added to the playoffs.
