Metro playoff scenarios (2 games left)
October 2, 2006

With Metro beating Chicago and Salt Lake coming back to tie Kansas City, Metro and the Wiz are tied for the fourth playoff spot in the East with 35 points each. However, Metro owns the first tie-breaker with their 1-0-2 record against KC and will most likely go through if the two teams end up tied.

With Metro and the Wizards playing in the finale, this week's matches (Metro @ Colorado, Kansas City vs Chivas) serve as a set-up for that game. Neither team can be eliminated with any result this week; no matter what happens, both will most likely face a win-and-in situation in the finale. However, if Metro beats Colorado or Kansas City loses to Chivas, Metro will face a tie-and-in situation.

The values in the table cells below are the minimum results Metro would need in the finale provided the different possibilities in this weekend's games.

  Metro win Metro tie Metro loss
KC win Tie Win Win
KC tie Tie Tie Win
KC loss Tie* Tie Tie^

*A one-goal loss would also be good enough for Metro, with the difference margin expanding based on this week's results. ^Provided Columbus doesn't win their two remaining games; then a win for Metro would be necessary as the three teams would be tied on points if Metro-KC tied, with KC winning the three-team tiebreaker.
