Seattle Sounders – Rest of MLS should be on high alert?

Momentum can take you far in sport. Right now, the Sounders boast this in abundance after bringing their record across their last six MLS outings to W4 D1 L1 with last week’s 1-1 home draw against Los Angeles FC. A respectable result bearing in mind the calibre of opponent – LAFC lead the league thus far – and means only Eastern Conference leaders NYCFC have more points through the last six league matches.

In essence then, this Sounders team are back mixing it with the best. To the surprise of no-one. After a slow start (partly owing to their CONCACAF Champions League exploits) they are now seventh in the West and in better shape, form wise, than most. Especially true here at Lumen Field where maximum points were plundered versus Charlotte (2-1), Minnesota (3-1) and Vancouver (4-0) previous to that LAFC stalemate.

Key Stat: Seattle Sounders are unbeaten in four MLS home games, bringing their record at Lumen Field in MLS for 2022 to W4 D1 L2. They would only register a single clean sheet across those games, coming in a recent 4-0 whitewash of Vancouver Whitecaps.


Seattle Sounders & Both To Score



Sporting Kansas City – Reality bites hard for SKC?

The pride of watching this team vying for supremacy in the Western Conference last season must feel like a distant memory for supporters and players alike. From finishing third in 2021 to sitting second bottom through the first 17 games of 2022, it has been a sharp fall back down to earth for manager Peter Vermes and his men, who reside four points from opponents Seattle Sounders and the MLS Playoffs.

Some pride was restored last time out in Nashville, though. As a scruffy – if a little fortuitous, scoring twice from 0.39 xG – 2-1 scoreline away to a side seven positions better off than themselves stopped the haemorrhaging following successive home defeats to New England and Vancouver. It also marked a first away win of the campaign (D2 L6 beforehand), last mustering two road wins in a row in August 2021.

Key Stat: Sporting Kansas City have lost nine of seventeen MLS matches (53% of their overall matches) this season, just one fewer than their total across the entire regular season in 2021 (34 games).

Seattle Sounders Vs Sporting Kansas City Betting Advice

These teams are treading in opposite directions, and this should be in evidence on Saturday. Seattle Sounders are steadily reasserting themselves on the Western Conference. Their recent 1-1 draw with Supporters Shield frontrunners LAFC moving them above the MLS Play-off line. Six places and four points above Sporting KC, who have as many wins this season (4) as the Sounders have in their last six matches.


Seattle Sounders Vs Sporting Kansas City – Key Facts:

  • Lumen Field hosts Saturday’s MLS all-Western Conference encounter between Seattle Sounders (7th – W6 D2 L6 for the season) and Sporting Kansas City (13th – W4 D4 L9).
  • Seattle Sounders would earn more points (13) in their last six matches than all but one of the 27 other teams in MLS. They are unbeaten as hosts in four, winning three.
  • Sporting Kansas City won for only the second time in 12 league games (W2 D4 L6) – and first away from home all season (D2 L6) – last time out at Nashville SC.


SKC did pick up a useful result last time out, a 2-1 victory at Nashville which marked a first road win of 2022 at the ninth attempt (D2 L6). Their record at this venue is also exemplary, recording three straight wins, scoring two or more each time, since a 3-1 loss in September 2018. Seattle are among the form teams though, and should justify favouritism as they look to make it four wins in five at Lumen Field.
