LA Galaxy to face Real Salt Lake in Western Conference Semifinals

By Adam Serrano

The LA Galaxy are heading to the 2013 MLS Cup Playoffs as the third seed in the Western Conference after their 1-1 draw with Seattle Sounders FC on Sunday.

The draw earns the Galaxy a series against Real Salt Lake, who the Galaxy are 1-0-1 against RSL in postseason games, with the lone draw being LA’s penalty kick defeat to Salt Lake in the 2009 MLS Cup. This season, the Galaxy are 2-1-0 against Salt Lake with LA outscoring the two seed by a seven to five margin.

The first match will be on November  3 at StubHub Center with the return leg being days later at Rio Tinto Stadium.
