Chivas USA midfielder Jesse Marsch has admitted that they want to win a playoff series for the first time, for it to be a successful season.
The goats will face Real Salt Lake on Saturday in the Western Conference semifinal.
“If we want to feel like it’s a successful season we would have to say that getting past the first round would be necessary, especially with the way the year has gone and the way last year went,” Marsch said.
“It’s been a battle for us for sure. I think that were trying to create a real winning mentality here and just getting to the playoffs can’t be good enough.”
Forward Alecko Eskandarian added: “It’s very important but we’re not worried about making history, we’re worried about making the best out of this season with this team. We feel that we have a good group of guys that has a chance to do something special.”
