The first spot in the MLS Conference Finals will be locked up tonight when Sporting Kansas City takes on the Colorado Rapids at Livestrong Sporting Park tonight (8pm, Fox Soccer Channel).
Sporting KC opened the Eastern Conference semifinal series with a 2-0 victory against the Rapids at Dick's Sporting Goods Park, and will now return home where they will be favored to hold off an injury-hit Rapids squad that will play tonight's match without injured starting defenders Drew Moor and Kosuke Kimura.
If Sporting KC can hold on and clinch the semifinal series victory, the regular season Eastern Conference champions would then host the East final on Sunday against the winner of the Houston-Philadelphia series.
