Diego Chara Diego Valeri - Portland Timbers - Yellow card

When Sporting Kansas City face the Portland Timbers in Leg 1 of the Western Conference Championship, they'll be without one of their leading goalscorers as Diego Rubio sits out due to a suspension for yellow card accumulation. 


Any player cautioned in two separate playoffs games earns an automatic one-game suspension, though cards are wiped clean for the MLS Cup final.


With Rubio already sidelined, there are a host of players in that series, as well as the Eastern Conference Championship between the New York Red Bulls and Atlanta United, who will be walking a tightrope in the first leg this Sunday.


Here is the full list of players who are one yellow card away from suspension:
