The Galaxy and MLS face an interesting problem. On current form, the Galaxy will not qualify for the SuperLiga tournament next year. However, they are in the SuperLiga final and could conceivably defeat Pachuca and raise the title. Does this mean that the Galaxy will be barred from defending their title?
A similar situation occured the year that Liverpool won the Champions' League. Their standing in England's Premier League should have disqualified them for the CL the next year, but their place as defending champions won out. The tournament changed the rules to allow them in.
I wonder what will happen to the Galaxy on that count if they win.
