All eyes will be on Portland's Jeremy Ebobisse or Philadelphia's Sergio Santos can catch LAFC's Diego Rossi, who sits alone atop the Golden Boot chart. Rossi had a two-goal game for LAFC against the Seattle Sounders in the Round of 16 but LAFC were knocked out in the quarterfinals by Orlando City SC.
Toronto FC's five-goal breakout star Ayo Akinola, who sits in second place, can no longer catch Rossi after the Reds were eliminated in the Round of 16.
