Playoff implications a-plenty as Major League Soccer takes the field on Sunday.
The Chicago Fire, sitting four points adrift of a playoff spot, need a result as they host Toronto FC. The visitors themselves are remain in limbo, having already clinched a playoff spot but still able to move up the table into a bye position. The match is also a significant one with the Fire playing likely their last match in SeatGeek Stadium before likely moving to Soldier Field next season.

Elsewhere, New England can clinch a playoff spot with a surprise result against Eastern Conference leaders NYCFC. Should the game swing the other direction, NCYFC can clinch the top spot in the Eastern Conference, already sitting six points above second-placed Philadelphia.

The Quakes have lost four in a row and slipped below the line. Seattle has clinched a playoff spot but can confirm home field for the first round with a result.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic takes the field at home against the Vancouver Whitecaps looking to extend his ridiculous goal form with 12 goals in his last eight games. The Galaxy have clinched a playoff spot but can pass Minnesota into second with a win and some help.
