The field is set for the Audi 2019 MLS Cup Playoffs, but how are the respective clubs doing heading into the postseason?
Based on form over the final 10 games of the 2019 MLS regular season, one team is flying into the playoffs – NYCFC, who have a stellar 2.3 points per game average over their last 10 games. They’re the only club over two points per game, although Atlanta United are just off the mark and Toronto FC are the only playoff team to go unbeaten in the last 10 league games.
Supporters’ Shield winners LAFC finished the season with a 2.12 ppg rate, but their last 10 games demonstrate a slowdown for Bob Bradley’s team, as they managed just 1.7 ppg in their final 10 games.
The playoff team in the worst form heading into the playoffs is the New York Red Bulls, taking just 1.1 ppg and with the most losses, five, in their final 10 games.
