MTL will try to take advantage of the opportunity in their final matchup against SKC.
The teams are currently in a two-game series that has both teams tied at two goals apiece.
In this matchup, both teams will have to defend their home turf and the last three games will be played in Los Angeles, California.
KFC MTL, meanwhile, is looking to build a cushion with a win against the visiting KC Wiz, who are tied with FC Dallas and Atlanta United.
The Wiz will have the luxury of playing the rest of the season at home, as they are playing their home opener on March 6.
SKC will have a home game against Houston on March 11 and will host the Los Angeles Galaxy on March 14.
MTL’s season is coming to an end, with the league’s top teams battling for the last playoff spot in the West.
While it seems like every other match in the final week of the campaign has been a battle of who is going to win, the final two games are critical to this championship race.
A win over SKC would mean a second straight playoff berth for MTL.
If the Wiz win, MTL would finish tied for third in the Western Conference.
On the other hand, a win for MCL would mean that SKC has an insurmountable advantage heading into the playoffs.
And if MTL wins, it would mean SKC won’t have to play at home for a full 90 minutes, something that is not uncommon in the MLS season.
SKC is already one point ahead of MTL and is currently on pace for a 10-game unbeaten streak.
This game will be one of the biggest games of the regular season, and one of only two to take place in Los, Angeles.
What to Watch: The Los Angeles match is scheduled for 7 p.m. on ESPN2.
