Sounders v Galaxy PreMatch Data

In the upcoming gamethread will be a bunch of data that we put out about player matchups, tactical keys to the game and statistics. Sometimes for home games these get missed by our readers with tickets to the game. So for today we're going to test a little presentation of that so that you can get read to watch the Seattle Sounders host the LA Galaxy. The gamethread will include all of this as well.

The game is on KONG 6/16 & KIRO 97.3 FM (99.3 FM for Spanish) at 7 PM Pacific.

Team Statistics Matchups

Team Duels Possession Pass Completion Advantage Shots +/- Run of Play Dead Ball
Seattle 53.8% 48.7% -0.6 2.4 1 2
Galaxy 53.3% 50.7% -1.6 2.7 1 0

Compiled from Opta data for all available matches - Duels and possession are typical. Passing advantage is a plus/minus figure comparing the team's pass completion rate to the team it opposes. A 10 for Seattle would mean that it averages a 10 point advantage in passing over the opponent. Shot +/- is the team stat.

  • Force DeLaGarza To Defend Bigs
