Seattle Sounders v Philadelphia Union - Pre Match Data

New, comments

Continuing last week's home match tradition (twice is a TRADITION), we present a mini version of the data that will be in the gamethread. As the gamethread goes up 90 minutes prior to the match many who are going to the game never see this. This week's keys to the game (tactics) are both a tribute to the Beastie Boys and a path to victory for the Seattle Sounders over the Philadelphia Union.

The game is on NBC Sports Network & KIRO 97.3 FM (99.3 FM for Spanish) at 1:30 PM Pacific.
