Sounders v Chivas USA - Gamethread

Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports

Wednesday's 7 PM match is on KONG 6/16 featuring a better than they were Chivas USA squad.

Seattle Sounders FC look to continue their ten match unbeaten streak at home (also ten unbeaten against Chivas USA) while on short rest. Seattle's central midfield pairing will need to communicate about who goes forward when and how in order to deal with the likely 4-1-4-1 of Chivas USA. The Yedlin/Rosales axis should be able to have their way along the right. Lastly, an early lead will mean more tonight than most (even with that impressive unbeaten run) as Seattle will need to rest some of their key players if possible.
