In 421 games, the 24-year-old has 205 goals and 396 assists for an absurd 1.5 points per game.
Fresh on the heels of the World Series, the 2021 MLS playoffs officially start this weekend, as the league’s top 14 teams battle for the MLS Cup.
The format: The MLS Cup playoffs consist of seven teams from each conference, reduced from the expanded format in 2020 which saw 10 teams from the East and eight from the West. The teams that finish between second and seventh place play in the first round this weekend.
From there, it's a simple single-elimination tournament until the champ is crowned on December 11th. See the full bracket here.
Top-seed:New England’s 73 points are not only 20 more than any other team, they’re the most-ever for an MLS team.
Player to watch:Colorado’s Cole Bassett rejected a transfer to Portugal’s Benfica at $20 million per year this summer to try and win a championship with his hometown team. Colorado is the West's #1 seed.
Darkhorse: Through the first half of the season, the Vancouver Whitecaps had won only four games and fired their coach. After scoring points in nine of their last ten games, Vancouver pulled out the West's sixth seed.
New England Revolution (+225)
Colorado Rapids (+350)
Seattle Sounders (+700)
National Women’s Soccer League Finals
After bouncing the top two seeds, the Washington Spirit and Chicago Red Stars will play for the NWSL title.
Spirit: Aside from continued ownership drama, 19-year-old Trinity Rodman is the story of the year for the Spirit. She scored in the semis.
Red Stars: USWNT star Mallory Pugh has been playing on a different level before missing the semis due to illness, but will look to be the difference for Chicago in the finals.
