Sounders vs. FC Dallas, preview: Set pieces could be key

I'm fairly certain it will be blacked out in Seattle, but I guess the MLSsoccer.com "Stream of the Week" will be Saturday's match against FC Dallas. So, that's cool I guess.

Of more interest, the folks over at MLSsoccer.com put together a pretty snazzy preview video. Matt Doyle points out that the Sounders have done a much better job of creating high pressure and goes as far as calling Osvaldo Alonso a "forward destroyer."

They also identify as set pieces bing the biggest area of concern, mainly because FC Dallas has some big bodies that they can throw forward.
