Sounders FC finally have a playoff opponent: the L.A. Galaxy

The wait is over. Finally.

With a 2-1 win against FC Dallas on Sunday, Los Angeles clinched the Supporters’ Shield and the top seed in the Western Conference, setting up a conference semifinal showdown with Sounders FC.

The Galaxy outscored Seattle 7-1 in two L.A. wins this season, even forcing the Sounders FC ownership to award a one-game rebate to next year’s season-ticket packages after a particularly humiliating loss in May.

The first leg of the two-game first round is Sunday, Oct. 31, at 5 p.m. — and it should be a packed house at Qwest Field. The return leg will be at the Home Depot Center on Sunday, Nov. 7 at 6 p.m.
