SEATTLE SOUNDERS VS LA GALAXY.
LA Galaxy’s early-season form and confidence makes them an obvious choice to avoid defeat against a Seattle Sounders team that has forgotten how to win MLS matches.
The Sounders head into Saturday’s game at Lumen Field on their longest winless run in team history after defeats in the opening two rounds to Nashville and Real Salt Lake took that sequence up to nine.
Brian Schmetzer’s side have been able to get wins in the CONCACAF Champions League during midweek play, but no points and no goals from their opening two MLS games is a troubling start. Seattle are operating without a couple of injured stars – Uruguayan international midfielder Nicolás Lodeiro and last season’s top scorer and Raúl Ruidíaz – which is certainly not helping.
And they may be without another key cog against the Galaxy this weekend after defender Alex Roldán picked up a foot injury in the 3-0 win over Club Leon on Tuesday. Additional concerns that their other designated player Albert Rusnak has made a slow start since his offseason arrival and you have plenty of reasons to oppose the hosts in this contest.
