Sounders v FC Dallas - Gamethread

Jane G Photography

Make six points happen, just like the six goals happened last time these met. KING5 will have the broadcast at 7:30 PM tonight. NBC Sports Net will have cut ins during their MLS Break Away show including the biggest reveal since the team joined MLS.

The potency of the dead ball game of FC Dallas can not be denied. Seattle Sounders FC will have to overcome that. One of the unique things about Dallas is how much they play in their own third. With a poor passing and position keeper the pressure that Seattle sometimes applies up top is a must tonight. That can lead to quick goal opportunities. Pressure from Oba and EJ can change the result tonight. Blaz Perez can be dangerous, as he showed during the Gold Cup. Traore will need to lead the line.

Lastly, Dempsey and that noise does not matter from first whistle to final whistle. For the players tonight is about three points over a key Western Conference opponent.
