Sounders-Tigres scouting report: Forcing turnovers a must for Seattle

Armchair Analyst Matt Doyle breaks down what he sees as the Sounders' best chance to score a result in Mexico.


By now, we all know the Seattle Sounders have their work cut out for them when they travel to Monterrey, Mexico to play Liga MX-leading UANL Tigres. As good as Tigres may be, though, the folks at seem to think the Sounders have a pretty decent chance.

That chance lies in their ability to create turnovers and hit Tigres on the counter-attack. That's essentially the formula the Sounders used when they were able to win in Monterrey during the 2011-12 CONCACAF Champions League group stage.

This wouldn't necessarily be the prettiest soccer, but the Sounders are surely happy to take what they can get at this point.
