Same Shape, Different Tactics

5

The Rapids and Whitecaps transitioned past their midfield as part of their plan to defeat Seattle. Rennie’s squad used long balls for more than 20% of their passes. Peraja’s men also used long balls more than 20% of the time. Caleb Porter’s Portland squad has gotten away from the long ball Timbers of the past. This season only 13% of their passes are classified as long. The defense is unlikely to be on an island as often as they were in the two losses.

From Sounders FC Good news. If Seattle loses it will be for entirely new reasons.
