Sounders v Chivas USA - Gamethread

Victor Decolongon

This could be the most popular club soccer game of the week thanks to Univision Deportes picking up the game and pushing it to 8 PM. KONG 6/16 has the local broadcast. Two teams searching for identity face off as The Goats and Sounders attempt to course correct midseason.

Nothing says Sunday in Seattle like great weather, some SeaFair events and roast Goat. Tonight's 8 PM match features all of the above and the hope for some fire, tacos and haircuts. To get there Seattle Sounders FC will have to take advantage of Chivas USA's newbs, a left side defense that's pretty weak and a center back that is quite accomplished at beating his own keeper.

Seattle has the opportunity to not just control the midfield, but to control all service. The Goats are better than they were but they still are not good. A weakened Sounders FC should be able to manage the game. Kennedy is a good keeper, but even the best can't stop everything - so show him everything.

Also, Fire.
