Infographic: Sounders vs. Dallas Matchup

Scroll down for full graphic

A visual look at players to watch, team stats, and previous head-to-head results for Wednesday's Sounders v. Dallas match-up.

We've barely had enough time to recover from Saturday's roller-coaster victory, and it's already time for another Sounders match. Join me in taking a visual look at Wednesday's matchup against FC Dallas.

What's Changed?

Thanks to your feedback, a few things have changed on this graphic. First, the stats at the top are now per-game averages, rather than season totals.

You'll also find additional defensive stats. There are now per-game averages for tackles, interceptions, and shots conceded, as well as yellow and red card totals for the season.

Finally, paired with the MLS Power Rankings are actual standings for each team. Since Power Rankings don't come out until Tuesday, this graphic used last week's rankings. I suspect Dallas will come out a bit lower this Tuesday.

Interesting Stats

While Dallas keeper Chris Seitz has had 31 saves in just 8 games and multiple Save of the Week nominees, he was replaced on Saturday by Raúl Fernández. It's unclear why.

As evidenced by our first matchup, and according to WhoScored.com, our teams match up rather well. Though it is reassuring to read that Dallas struggles to defend set pieces. Another #AirMarshall header?

I whipped up a graph that examines when the Sounders & their opponents score. Six of the Sounders' 20 goals have been scored in the last 10 minutes of the game, while 4 have been scored between the 21-30 minute mark. We concede goals early in both halves.

Dallas has been a little card happy lately. Another red on Saturday brought their total to 5 for the season. Midfielder Je-Vaughn Watson received his second of the year and will have to sit for Wednesday's game.

Feedback

As always, let me know what changes or additions you'd like to see.
