After a pair of dramatic, compelling MLS conference finals, we have a title-game matchup that looks, on paper at least, like a classic favorite against a heavy underdog.

In one corner, there are the Supporters’ Shield–winning, high-profile LA Galaxy, who will be playing in their home stadium. In the other, bloodied but unbowed, stand the underestimated, injury-depleted Houston Dynamo.

Let’s look back at how they got there, and see if this MLS Cup pairing is as lopsided as some would suggest.

CARSON, Calif. – In Real Salt Lake’s final preparation ahead of Sunday’s Western Conference Championship match against the LA Galaxy, midfielder Javier Morales talked about how his team would enjoy the bigger confines of The Home Depot Center.

The dimension of the field, he said, would suit RSL’s possession brand of soccer.

It certainly looked that way in the first half of the game, when the visitors found themselves enjoying plenty of space an plenty of the ball and could have gone into the half with a lead rather than a 1-1 tie.
