Seattle Sounders Preview – Can Seattle Sounders use home comforts?

Following a 2-1 defeat last time out away from home at Vancouver Whitecaps, Tuesday night’s hosts, Seattle Sounders, will be keen to get back to winning ways when they return to their Lumen Field ground for this upcoming encounter with time running out for the hosts to make a late challenge for a possible place in the Final Series play-offs.

Seattle Sounders find themselves in the bottom half of the Western Conference and sitting in 10th place but even more importantly, the hosts are now six points adrift of the top seven pack with just three league games remaining of the regular season, and having managed to pick up just two wins out of their last eight matches overall, the hosts look to have their work cut out here despite holding supposed home advantage.

Victories against Houston Dynamo and Austin have been swamped by five defeats within this eight-match sequence as Seattle Sounders have been dealt damaging losses by the likes of Atlanta United, Real Salt Lake, Portland Timbers, Orlando City and the aforementioned Vancouver Whitecaps, which have prevented Seattle from making inroads into the top seven pack.

The bigger picture shows Seattle Sounders have collected just four wins from their previous 14 matches overall, while also slipping to nine defeats in the process, but the hosts have a chance of getting something from home surroundings on Tuesday night as they’ve lost just three of their last 12 home games.

Having also won eight of these last 12 home games, Seattle Sounders look to hold a reasonable chance here, especially as the hosts ran out comfortable 4-1 winners at home in their only previous meeting against Tuesday’s visitors, FC Cincinnati.

Our betting suggestion:
Both teams to score

FC Cincinnati Preview – Can FC Cincinnati extend stubborn unbeaten run?

By contrast, FC Cincinnati already occupy a place in the Final Series play-off pack as the visitors currently sit in 6th place and hold a three-point cushion over 8th placed Columbus Crew, so Cincinnati will be desperate to hold onto their top seven spot on Tuesday night when they travel to Seattle for this increasingly important fixture.

FC Cincinnati have produced a stubborn but steady sequence of results in the MLS overall in recent times as the visitors are unbeaten in their last 10 matches overall which consists of four wins and six draws, the victories coming in the form of wins against Philadelphia Union, Charlotte, San Jose Earthquakes and Real Salt Lake, the latter being a 2-1 win away from home.

The visitors have also made themselves tough to beat as they’ve picked up additional points thanks to six draws, while the bigger picture also underlines FC Cincinnati’s stubborn streak as they’ve lost just once in their previous 17 games overall in the MLS and they look to be much better equipped for this upcoming trip than their previous visit.

Cincinnati were handed a heavy 4-1 thrashing in their last visit to Lumen Field against Seattle Sounders but that was three and a half years ago and much has changed since then, not least FC Cincinnati’s refusal to be dealt out too many defeats in this campaign, losing just eight out of their total of 31 matches played to date.

The visitors have lost just two of their last 12 outings on the road and they have scored in 10 of these 12 away games, so they also look to hold a decent chance of getting something out of this upcoming encounter on Tuesday night.
