MATCH PREVIEW: This is it. The final match of the 2020 regular season is here with SD Loyal taking on first place Phoenix Rising FC in a crucial match with playoff implications. SD Loyal comes into the match in third place with 23 points in the standings, tied for second place with LA Galaxy II but "Los Dos" holds the tiebreaker over coach Landon Donovan's team. This is a must win match for SD Loyal so that it has improved chances to clinch the second and final post season slot in Group B. A loss or a tie and the team would need help and would have a slim chance to reach the playoffs in its inaugural season. SD Loyal (6-4-5) is in this scenario after going unbeaten in its last six games (three wins, three ties). SD Loyal will be without one of its best players as Elijah Martin will be serving a red card suspension. Phoenix Rising FC comes into the match having already clinched a post season berth with a 9-3-2 record and 29 points. It has this match plus a regular season finale against LA Galaxy II Oct. 4.
