Player / Injury Updates
The Sounders will be without Obafemi Martins, who accumulated two yellow cards in last week's victory against the Houston Dynamo. For RSL, Alvaro Saborio suffered a fracture in his foot and will miss the game, as will Jordan Allen and Rich Balchan.
Take a look at the percentage of Aerial Duels won by RSL. 43 percent. It is time for another #AirMarshall goal!
If we are going by the data, we need to worry a bit about the first 15 minutes of the game. The Sounders give up 29% of all goals, and RSL scores 28% of all goals, during this time frame.
I still haven't had to make any updates to the goal and assist leaders for the Sounders in over a month. I am ready to make some changes!
The Sounders have the best record on the road, at 5-3-2. RSL's home record is also quite strong at 6-1-5. Seattle has kept a clean sheet in 6 of their last 8 matches against Salt Lake. Let's make that 7 tomorrow.
