ESPN will continue its live presentation of the 2014 MLS Cup Playoffs with the first leg in Western Conference Championship, the Los Angeles Galaxy vs. Seattle Sounders on Sunday, Nov. 23, at 5 p.m. on ESPN, WatchESPN, ESPN Deportes and ESPN Deportes Radio. The match between the league’s top two teams in the standings at season’s end includes two of the three finalists for the league’s most valuable player award – Robbie Keane (Los Angeles) and Obafemi Martins (Seattle).
