This Week in Sounder Gifs: Bringing home that away goal (animated)

New, 14 comments

Seattle Sounders FC traveled to Frisco, Texas, smashed a 1-1 tie against FC Dallas, and grabbed a big away goal. Heading into the home leg, the advantage sits with Seattle after Osvaldo Alonso headed in the equalizer and the Sounders played solid defense to see the match out. A win was surely preferred but this scenario leaves the home team with the best chances to advance.

Obafemi Martins has an early chance stopped by Raul Fernandez:

Although ultimately called offsides, Stefan Frei still makes a nice stop:
