Real Salt Lake travels to Seattle to take on the Sounders in the first leg of the MLS playoffs (8 p.m., NBCSN) - a rematch of their 2011 playoff series.

For those of you who haven't caught on to the quirks of soccer, this is actually the first half of what amounts to a single match. The score from tonight's game will be added to the score of the Nov. 8 game in Rio Tinto Stadium.

A year ago, RSL won 3-0 at home; Seattle won 2-0 at home; RSL won 3-2 overall and advanced to the West Conference finals.

If the two teams are tied on aggregate after the Nov. 8 game, then we'll head to overtime. If they're still tied after OT, then we'll head to a shootout.
