Both sides made their way to the Cup Final thanks to narrow victories in their respective conference finals, with the Timbers beating FC Dallas with an aggregate score of 5-3 and sealed by a final minute goal from Lucas Melano just as Dallas were knocking on the door and looking for the gametyizg goals. Columbus, meanwhile, were able to squeak by with a 2-1 aggregate scoreline as they held off a late rally from the Red Bulls following their 2-0 victory in the first leg of their match up.
Barring an extreme bout of weather -- a snow or ice storm of epic proportions -- the Timbers will be headed to Columbus for the match and will play in MAPFRE Stadium on Sunday. The final will be held at 1:00 p.m. PT and will be broadcast on ESPN. Tickets for the Cup Final will go on sale Monday morning at 8:00 a.m. through MLSsoccer.com or through TimbersArmy.org for 107IST members.
