It was a tense affair at BC Place on Sunday night as Cascadia rivals Vancouver Whitecaps FC and the Seattle Sounders battled to a 0-0 draw in the first leg of the Western Conference Semifinals. The two will travel to Seattle on Thursday to see who advances to the Western Conference Championship.
There were few attacking opportunities for either team as both will walk away from Leg One with reason to be hopeful going into the next match. The two combined for just one shot on target, not including a Kendall Waston clearance that hit off the crossbar. That figure is the lowest ever in an Audi MLS Cup Playoff match.
Seattle will travel home knowing a win gets them through while Vancouver will need just one goal to put the pressure on Seattle.
