Colorado 19.4.17
Boateng out 8-10 weeks

Midfielder Nana Boateng is expected to miss significant time after fracturing three vertebrae in his back in Saturday's 2-1 home loss to Real Salt Lake. The injury occurred in the first half when Boateng went up for an aerial challenge with RSL's Luke Mulholland and landed hard on his back. Boateng will miss 8-10 weeks, but the Rapids said the injury will not require surgery.

NY City 18.4.17
Shelton sidelined 4 to 6 weeks

New York City winger Khiry Shelton will miss the next four to six weeks with a hamstring injury. The 23-year old pulled up in the final minutes of NYCFC's 2-0 win over Philadelphia on Friday night. Shelton has come off the bench in four games this season, after scoring four times in 24 appearances last year.

Colorado 15.4.17
Howard suspended 3 games

Colorado Rapids goalkeeper Tim Howard has been suspended for three games and fined an undisclosed amount for profane language directed toward a fan during a game against Sporting Kansas City and an altercation with a fan following the match. The longtime U.S. national team star was penalized Friday, five days after Colorado's 3-1 loss at Sporting on Sunday.

Vancouv. 7.4.17
Shea out up to 12 weeks

The Vancouver Whitecaps say Brek Shea could miss up to 12 weeks with an injury to his left knee. The 27-year-old midfielder was hurt five minutes into Wednesday's second leg of the CONCACAF Champions League semifinal against Tigres UANL. "He's gone for an MRI [on Friday]," Whitecaps head coach Carl Robinson said after Thursday's practice. "If I had to hazard a guess, I'd say it will be six, eight, 10, 12 weeks. That's obviously not great for us."

League format : Soccer / Football : MLS 2017

MLS awards the regular season winners with the Supporters' Shield and a direct berth in the CONCACAF Champions League, the continental tournament. The MLS post-season tournament involve 12 clubs. The top six teams in points from each conference at the end of the regular season will qualify for the playoffs. The third-place team in each conference will host the sixth seed in one single-elimination game while No. 4 hosts No. 5 in the other. The four conference semifinalists then will be reseeded to ensure the first-place finisher faces off against the lowest-ranked knockout round survivor.

The four Conference Semifinals will be decided by two-game aggregate series, with the lower-seeded team hosts the first game. The winners of those four series advance to the home-and-away, total-goals Conference Championships that will determine the MLS Cup finalists. In this round the lower-seeded team also hosts the first game. The MLS Cup is a single championship match hosted at the home venue of the participating team with a higher regular-season point total.
