MLS Classics: Real Salt Lake-LAFC 2018 Knockout Round clash opens Audi Playoff Week

Some of the most memorable games in Major League Soccer history have occurred in the postseason, when stakes are raised the highest. A number of those clashes have already been featured in the MLS Classics series and that continues during Audi Playoff Week.

We return to Banc of California Stadium for a Knockout Round showdown between expansion side LAFC and Real Salt Lake. In just their second MLS game, LAFC thrashed RSL, 5-1, at Rio Tinto Stadium and were 2-0 victors at the Banc later that season.

The club’s first playoff game, though, would be a different story with Damir Kreilach playing the part of villain — or hero depending on who you support.

Before settling in for this stream (4 ET), look back at both team’s starting lineups below. Also, check out the full catalog of MLS Classics matches.
