The top two teams in the Western Conference square off tonight at Rio Tinto Stadium when the Portland Timbers pay a visit to Real Salt Lake in the first leg of their conference final series (9pm, ESPN2).
The Timbers come in off a resounding victory against the Seattle Sounders, looking thoroughly dominant in beating their arch-rivals.
For RSL, their conference semifinal victory against the Los Angeles Galaxy was a breaking of a hex at home, where RSL had not won a decisive match in elimination play before.
