Slow Start to MLS Playoffs
Not exactly a dynamic start to MLS postseason.
Three goals in four matches, all in first-half play.
Higher seeds earn no better than a tie.
Average attendance was 14,245 -- 2,500 below the regular season figure despite three games played on Saturday night. The biggest crowd (17,834) came on a Thursday while the primetime weekend games mustered an average of 13,000.
With seasons at stake in the second legs, we are sure to see some intriguing matches and bigger turnouts this week, right? Which lower seed has the best chance to reach the conference final? Can Chicago hold off DCU at RFK? Will Houston rebound at home? Does Chivas have enough left to overcome K.C.? Is New England certain of shaking off NYRB after earning a road tie? Will we see penalty kick tiebreakers in any series? (I predicted before the playoffs started that both DCU and Chivas would go to PKs)
