ExtraTime Radio: Columbus Crew SC catch Red Bulls napping | Can FC Dallas turn the tables on the Timbers?

Three games remain in the 2015 MLS season, and the guys gather to break down how we got to this point after Sunday’s Conference Championship first legs. Up first, the Western Conference, where the Timbers put on a show without Diego Valeri and ran out 3-1 winners at home. Fox Sports pundit Alexi Lalas was at Providence Park and says Dallas still has plenty of room to muscle in on an MLS Cup experience.

Out East, Justin Meram threw a sucker punch heard from Columbus to New York then Kei Kamara did what he does best to make it 2-0 and give the Red Bulls a mountain to climb at home. What happened on the defensive breakdowns? Did Crew SC out Red Bull the Red Bulls? What’s the tactical landscape look like for the second leg?
