The Columbus Crew are in the MLS Playoffs

New, comment

Toronto can't catch the Crew now.

The Crew sealed up their first playoff berth since 2011 with Toronto's 1-1 draw today against the Montreal Impact. Toronto needed to win their final two games while the Crew needed to lose their games against New York and Philadelphia to close out the season. With today's draw, Toronto can't reach the Crew's 46 points.

Columbus can now focus on playoff position in their last two games. They can finish anywhere from 3rd to 5th in the Eastern Conference. A win against New York tomorrow would vault them past the Red Bulls into 4th place. The Crew would need at least 4 points in the last two games of the season to have any chance to catch Sporting Kansas City in 3rd place.
