Sounders v Salt Lake - Eternal Blue, Friday Green

Real Salt Lake comes to Seattle with their presence in first place on the line. They will attempt to be the first ever team to beat Seattle Sounders FC in a competitive match in front of more than 50,000 people and they will do so on national television (NBC Sports). Both clubs can lay a valid claim to being the best "not LA" team from 2009 to the present, but the point is arguable. With the winner of this match taking the lead in the Supporters' Shield this is the most important regular season match for Seattle since the MLS home opener. Neither Seattle nor RSL will be at full strength due to injury and national team call-ups. The depth on both sides is high enough quality that the match should entertain the masses in attendance and watching around the country. It's time for Green Friday.
