The 2010 MLS Playoff field is set, and some intriguing matchups highlight the first round.

In the West, the reward for the Los Angeles Galaxy winning the Supporters' Shield is a date with the Seattle Sounders, one of the league's most in-form teams. Defending MLS Cup champion Real Salt Lake also has a bit of a handful in the first round, drawing an FC Dallas team that didn't lose in 19 matches before dropping its last two games of the year, including a loss at Rio Tinto.

In the East, top-seeded New York has to find a way to stop San Jose and red-hot Chris Wondolowski, while the second-seeded Columbus Crew must overcome the loss of its starting goalkeeper to shut down the Colorado Rapids' in-form strike tandem of Conor Casey and Omar Cummings.
