Major League Soccer Cup Final

The Galaxy advanced past the Seattle Sounders in the Western Conference Championship thanks to the away-goals tie-breaker after losing 2-1 in the second leg on Sunday night (2-2 aggregate).

With the victory, the Galaxy will now compete in their ninth MLS Cup final, a league record, and their fourth in the last six years. LA have won the MLS Cup four times, which is tied with D.C. United for the most all-time.

The Revolution, who beat the New York Red Bulls in the Eastern Conference Championship, will make their fifth MLS Cup final appearance. They lost all four of their previous trips to the title game, including two defeats to the Galaxy: In 2002, the Galaxy beat the Revs, 1-0 in extratime, in Foxboro, Mass., for their first MLS Cup trophy, and they picked up their second MLS title after topping the Revs, 1-0, in 2005 in Frisco, Texas.
