Who’s the team to beat this year?

The LA Galaxy have five MLS Cup wins under their belt – but have fallen off a cliff this season.

The Seattle Sounders and Portland Timbers, winners of the last two MLS Cups, are back in the playoffs. But Eastern Conference leader Toronto FC, who has the most points from the regular season, looks like the team to beat.

    1. Good pick! We’ve got some Toronto FC fans here in the ExpressVPN office too.

      Any opinions on Kei Kamara and Columbus Crew? If he stays on top of the scoring charts, this could get interesting!

  1. This does not cover the MLS Live webpage/app. In 2016 I was able to access MLS Live from any of the VPN servers I tried, but this year, 2017, I have varied experiences.
