The Columbus Crew have some work to do in their second playoff game Thursday evening in Crew Stadium to stave off elimination and advance to the Eastern Conference Championship game.
The Crew must be leading Real Salt Lake by one goal at the end of the 90 minutes of regulation due to their 1-0 loss to RSL in the first match. If they lead, the series will be tied on aggregate goals.
This then sends the match into a 30-minute extra-time period, which is divided into two 15-minute periods. If there is still no winner, the game will be decided by penalty kicks, according to the MLS Cup Playoffs format.
Tonight’s match is at 8 p.m.
