The Los Angeles Galaxy advanced on away goals following a 2-1 loss to the Seattle Sounders at CenturyLink Field tonight and a 2-2 aggregate draw. LA midfielder Juninho's second half goal proved to be the decisive strike as LA advances to it's first final since the won it all back in 2012 going back to back as MLS Champions.

Seattle took an early 2-0 lead with first half goals by Brad Evans and Clint Dempsey, and looked to be in position to advance to their first MLS Cup Final in team history but Juninho changed that with an absolute belter from long range that went in off Seattle keeper Stefan Frei's post.

New England will be looking for their first MLS Cup in their fifth appearance while LA is for their fifth trophy in nine attempts counting 2014. It will be the final match for United States international and Galaxy midfielder Landon Donovan who is retiring at the end of the year.

The final will be at the StubHub Center on December 7th at 3PM EST on ESPN.
