    NOTE:
    A bug in the game pairs the wrong teams in the Conference Semifinals. Sounders FC should be playing Whitecaps FC and Toronto FC should be playing New York City FC because they are the lower seeds coming out of the Knockout Round.

    These matches can end in a draw. The teams listed on the left have home field advantage. Also, this match takes place midweek (Wednesday), so the home team has had 4 days since the Knockout Round while the away team is fully rested.

    Colombus' game against Philadelphia was quite disappointing. I believe the rivals were superior in overall terms, despite the promising start of the game. However, a champion must survive to the bad days and Colombus did to take the game to the penalties and win it. Let's hope to see a better image now.

    Philadelphia has proven a tough opponent for the Crew, but we didn't finish our chances well. Chester switched from a 4-4-1-1 Midfield to a 4-3-3 attack in the second half, but that didn't work as expected and gave the Union more of the ball. Brought in an extra striker in OT and went to a 4-4-2 with better results, but again, the finishing wasn't there. One bright spot is that the passing was decent (except in the final third). I struggle with manual settings and have regressed a little having not played FIFA for a while, so 80% was a bright spot for me.

    Thanks guys for getting your predictions in, although still waiting on @WestardLord who is currently atop the Leader Board.

    There is an away goal rule that applies to the Conference Semifinals and Conference Finals. In regards to the contest, you are just predicting the winner of the match at hand and not the aggregate winner (if that was even a question).

    Glad you could join. Don't really need to know much about the teams or players. I provide some stats for each team to help predict the scores, but you could probably do just as well by throwing out random numbers. :D

    I'll be posting results shortly if anybody else wants to add their predictions before I do.

    NOTE:
    Because @Ashy came in late, and since this round went against the grain, I gave him a gratis point for the Crew draw. Also, if you have questions on the scoring or want to see log table just ask.

    These matches can end in a draw if away goals or aggregate score dictate a winner, otherwise will go to PENALTIES if necessary. Leg 2 resumed after the International Break so all teams are well rested. To clarify, the aggregate score is NOT a factor in the contest, just the results of the match itself. Teams on the left have home field advantage.

    It was a very unlucky draw. Colombus definitely were the best team and enjoyed the best chances. However we must take a look at Toronto's goal... it was the last minute and Crew's goalie kicked the ball instead of keeping possession. A major and expensive error.

    Zack Steffen is only 23, so youthful mistakes are bound to happen. Toronto FC were applying a lot of pressure that caused dangerous errors in the back. Was a failed attempt to stall and run out the clock. At least Chester has a defensive blueprint for Leg 2. Don't know about offense. :#

    Great, got some extra picks in...the more the merrier. Just missing @LAboog4 at this point. Hope to have the match result posted by tomorrow evening. A lot of confidence in the Crew, I see. You do realize I'm at the controller, right? :p

    @WestardLord , @Ashy
    Whoops! I made a mistake (which I fixed). New York City will host the first match with Columbus and not the other way around if you want to edit your posts.
