Hype: Minnesota United vs. Sporting Kansas City | MLS Cup Playoffs Conference Semifinals

Upsets against the top two seeds in the East opened the door for Sporting Kansas City to have home field advantage throughout the remainder of the Audi 2020 MLS Cup Playoffs, but Minnesota United will come to Children's Mercy Park confident coming off their first playoff win when the sides square off Dec. 3 in the Western Conference Semifinals. In an opening round of the Audi 2020 MLS Cup Playoffs known for dramatic penalty-kick shootouts and games decided by razor-thin margins, Minnesota United claimed the round's most lopsided win, defeating the Rapids 3-0 at Allianz Field. It was the Loons first playoff win in their second appearance after losing at home to the LA Galaxy a year ago. This is the fifth meeting between the teams this season. They played to a 0-0 draw at Children's Mercy Park a month ago. SKC won the previous two matchups, including 1-0 at Children's Mercy Park on Sept. 13 after the Loons were victorious at the MLS is Back Tournament in July.
