The Seattle Sounders (15-10-8) are coming into this match after a nice performance on the road against San Jose. They scored the only goal of the match and grabbed three valuable points. But they have not had it easy lately, recording just two wins in their last five matches (2-2-1). Seattle are now sitting at the 3rd spot of the Conference with 53 points. They have scored 51 goals so far and have conceded 49 in the process. They have also been very hard to beat at home (10-2-4), with both of their losses this season coming in their last six (2-2-2).
On the other hand, Minnesota United (15-10-8) fought really hard in their last match, against Los Angeles FC at home. Their opponents took the lead in that match but Minnesota United pulled back even for the final 1-1. They have been in good form lately, losing just one of their last six matches (3-1-2). Minnesota United are sitting at the 2nd spot of the Conference with 53 points, as many as Seattle below them. They have scored 52 goals and have conceded 42. They have been solid on the road so far (5-9-2) but terrible lately (1-4-2).
Seattle have been excellent in this match-up, going undefeated in all five against Minnesota (4-0-1), including a 1-1 draw on the road earlier in the season. They have won both previous matches in this venue but didn’t keep a clean sheet. Minnesota United have struggled on the road lately but could score here. But Seattle should be extra motivated in front of their crowd.
