MLS Classics: The “Double Post” playoff game – Portland Timbers vs Sporting KC

Back in 2015 the Portland Timbers and Sporting Kansas City came together for one of the most dramatic single-elimination MLS Cup Playoff battles in league history.

The showdown at Providence Park was an emotional rollercoaster, featuring goals when you least expected them and an ending for the ages.

The signature moment of this match? A “double post” after which a bar was later named.

The starting lineups for the match can be found below.
