Seeds finalized for the 2011 MLS Cup playoffs

MLS Logo.jpgThe Houston Dynamo beat a reserve-laden L.A. Galaxy 3-1 Sunday in the last game of the MLS regular season. That means, at long last, the playoff seeds and matchups are complete. Here’s how things finished:

WESTERN CONFERENCE

1. L.A. Galaxy (19-5-10, 67 points)

2. Sounders FC (18-7-9, 63 points)

3. Real Salt Lake (15-11-8, 53 points)

EASTERN CONFERENCE

1. Sporting K.C. (13-9-12, 51 points)

2. Houston Dynamo (12-9-13, 49 points)

3. Philadelphia Union (11-8-15, 48 points)

WILD CARDS

1. FC Dallas (15-12-7, 52 points)

2. Colorado Rapids (12-9-13, 49 points)

3. Columbus Crew (13-13-8, 47 points)

4. New York Red Bulls (10-8-16, 46 points)

In the wild-card round, Dallas will host New York on Wednesday and Colorado will host Columbus on Thursday.

The highest remaining seed after those games faces Sporting K.C. in the conference semifinals and the other team plays the Galaxy. Other conference semifinals pair Seattle and RSL (as you probably know by now) along with Houston and Philadelphia.

I’ll update dates, times and such when that information becomes available (UPDATE: Full schedule as of Sunday night after the jump). Which matchups are you most looking forward to?
