November 19, 2021 By Juan Aguerrevere
The 2021 MLS Cup Playoffs Round 1 will feature six knockout matches from Saturday, Nov. 20, through Tuesday, Nov. 23. Learn how these teams are shaping up for each matchup and how to watch all the action.

Philadelphia Union vs. NY Red Bulls on Saturday, Nov. 20, at 2:30 p.m. ET

The MLS Cup Playoffs kick off on Saturday with the Philadelphia Union facing Eastern Conference foe NY Red Bulls at Subaru Park along the Delaware River.

The Union finished second in the east behind Supporters Shield winners the New England Revolution. Therefore, they will face the seventh-seeded NY Red Bulls, who went undefeated in their last three regular season games to clinch the last playoff spot in the conference.

You can watch the game live on TV on TUDN or Univision. Scroll to the bottom of the article or check our MLS competition page for more broadcast and streaming information.

Sporting KC vs. Vancouver Whitecaps on Saturday, Nov. 20, at 5 p.m. ET

Saturday 2021 MLS Cup Playoffs action will conclude with Sporting Kansas City hosting the Vancouver Whitecaps at Children’s Mercy Park.

Sporting KC is the favorite in this matchup after finishing third in the Western Conference, just three points behind first-place Colorado. Kansas City could have earned a first-place finish in the west, but they lost their final three regular season games. On the other hand, an opportunistic Vancouver side that defeated Sporting in their last outing in October will aim to make the best out of Sporting KC’s current run of bad form.

The game will broadcast live on TUDN. Scroll to the bottom of the article or check our MLS competition page for more broadcast and streaming information.

New York City FC vs. Atlanta United on Sunday, Nov. 21, at 3 p.m. ET

New York City FC and Atlanta United will kick-start MLS Cup Playoffs action on Sunday at the world-famous Yankee Stadium.

The two Eastern Conference teams have two of the league’s top strikers. Argentina's Valentin Castellanos led the 2021 MLS regular season with 19 goals for New York, and Venezuela's Josef Martinez scored 12 goals for Atlanta in his season back from an ACL injury. Expect this game to be filled with goals as both sides find themselves in the top 11 teams for expected goals this season.

Portland Timbers vs. Minnesota United on Sunday, Nov 21, at 5:30 p.m. ET

The Portland Timbers will host Western Conference rivals Minnesota United at the ever-so-energetic Providence Park to end Sunday playoffs play.

Giovanni Savarese’s Portland Timbers posted the fourth-most goals in the league this season. However, they also conceded the second-most goals out of the 14 teams that made it to the playoffs. This is good news for Minnesota, who had difficulties finding the back of the net throughout the season. Furthermore, the Toons went undefeated against the Timbers this season, winning one at home and another one away.

Nashville SC vs. Orlando City SC on Tuesday, Nov. 23, at 8 p.m. ET

Orlando City will look to advance to the second round of playoffs, but first, they will have to defeat Nashville SC at Nissan Stadium.

Taking down Nashville in Nashville is not an easy task. In fact, the Six-Strings went undefeated at home this season, posting eight wins and nine draws. Their flawless home record helped them finish in third place, giving them home-field advantage in the playoffs’ first and second round. Luis Nani and the rest of Orlando City will have to work wonders to advance past Nashville. A penalty shootout would probably favor the Lions, who have penalty specialist Pedro Gallese in goal.

Seattle Sounders vs. Real Salt Lake on Tuesday, Nov. 23, at 10:30 p.m. ET

The 2021 MLS Cup Playoffs first round will conclude with the Seattle Sounders taking on Real Salt Lake Lumen Field in Seattle.

The Sounders finished second in the Western Conference and were led by Peruvian forward Raul Ruidiaz, who bagged 17 goals. Seattle did a fair share of scoring and defending, keeping a healthy 20-goal differential – tied fourth overall in the league. As for Real Salt Lake, they endured a difficult season finishing seventh in the Western Conference. A 1-0 win on Decision Day against Sporting KC clinched RSL a spot in the playoffs over the LA Galaxy by goal differential.

The game will air on live TV on Fox Sports 1 and Fox Deportes. Scroll to the bottom of the article or check our MLS competition page for more broadcast and streaming information.
