2023 MLS Cup Recap Columbus Crew:

Columbus Crew’s journey to the MLS Cup was marked by strategic decisions and impactful moments. Securing Wilfried Nancy mid-contract from CF Montréal proved pivotal, as the French coach’s influence transformed the Crew into the league’s most dynamic team, leading in goals and possession.

The seamless transition from losing playmaker Lucas Zelarayán midseason to signing Diego Rossi showcased the team’s adaptability, with Rossi’s contributions complementing the Crew’s needs. Cucho Hernández’s stellar performance post-Rossi’s arrival, the contribution of young talents from the MLS NEXT Pro pipeline, and a legendary comeback against FC Cincinnati highlighted the Crew’s resilience and chemistry, bringing them to the brink of winning the MLS Cup.

2023 MLS Cup Recap LAFC:

LAFC’s path to the MLS Cup is defined by Dénis Bouanga’s goal-scoring, securing the MLS Golden Boot with 20 goals and seven assists in the regular season. When LAFC endured a challenging stretch during the summer, a pivotal moment in El Tráfico sparked a turnaround, setting the stage for their impressive late-season form.

The team’s resilience was evident in a grueling schedule of 53 games across multiple competitions, showcasing their deep roster and championship spirit. The return of goalkeeper Maxime Crépeau, with five clean sheets, and unexpected contributions from veteran fullback Ryan Hollingshead, who scored three playoff goals, including the decisive strike in the Western Conference Final, highlighted the team’s collective strength and versatility. LAFC heads into the MLS Cup final with a blend of goal-scoring excellence, defensive prowess, and a battle-tested mentality.
