The road to the MLS Cup final will run through Ohio as FC Cincinnati host the Columbus Crew in what promises to be the most intense Hell is Real derby of all time on Saturday at TQL Stadium.

A controversial goal last weekend propelled the Supporters' Shield winners to a 1-0 victory over the Philadelphia Union, while the Crew needed extra time against Orlando City before eventually coming away with a 2-0 triumph.

We say: FC Cincinnati 2-2 Columbus Crew (Cincinnati advance on penalties)


This match could go either way, as Nancy and Noonan are sure to put together an intelligent game plan, while both sides also have plenty of outstanding individual talent capable of producing a moment of magic.

Ultimately, we believe the overall quality of the Orange and Blue at every position, and their experience in close games, will enable them to keep their nerve in a match that is sure to be packed with pressure.

Los Angeles vs. Houston (Sunday, 2.30am)

Los Angeles FC can become the first side since the Seattle Sounders (2019 and 2020) to make the MLS Cup final in consecutive seasons when they host the Houston Dynamo on Saturday at BMO Stadium.

The Black and Gold edged the Seattle Sounders 1-0 in the Western Conference semi-finals to advance to this stage, while Orange Crush defeated Sporting Kansas City by that same score and will play in the conference finals for the first time since 2017.

We say: Los Angeles FC 1-0 Houston Dynamo


The quality of an in-form Bouanga, along with the top-class goalkeeping of Crepeau, could be what separates these two evenly matched sides.

As strong as Houston are in the middle of the field, they do not have anyone in the attacking third with the finishing ability of a Bouanga.
