Seattle Sounders Preview – Will the Sounders strike back with a home win?

Brian Schmetzer’s Seattle Sounders are flying high in second place in the Western Conference table at present. After nine games played in this season’s MLS, the Sounders have won four, drawn three and lost two. Ahead of this round of fixtures, they are just two points behind leaders Sporting Kansas City.

Having collected ten points from a possible 12, the Sounders fell to a disappointing defeat last time out. Despite Kevin Leerdam levelling the scores before half time, Portland Timbers netted late to leave CenturyLink Field with a 2-1 win and all three points.

Our betting prediction:
Seattle to win to nil

(odds taken 1710 GMT, Wednesday 9 September)

Defeat last time out was Seattle’s first loss since losing to Chicago Fire in the MLS is Back Tournament at the ESPN World of Sports Complex back in July. Can Schmetzer’s high-flying side get back to winning ways this Friday?

San Jose Earthquakes Preview – Quakes to have a tough time in Seattle?

Matias Almeyda’s San Jose Earthquakes have had an abysmal season so far. Not helped by the unusual circumstances, the Quakes sit rock bottom of the Western table after eight games played. They have won two, lost three and drawn three so far.

Having said that, with things so tight, victory on Friday could lift them into mid-table. Since securing back-to-back wins over Vancouver Whitecaps and Chicago Fire, San Jose have taken just one point from four matches. However, they stopped a run of three straight defeats with a 1-1 draw with fellow strugglers Colorado Rapids last weekend.
