All-time in Seattle the Sounders and LA Galaxy are even at three wins apiece with ten goals scored by each side. All-time probably matters a lot less than Bruce Arena's woeful road record in 2015 (2-8-5 -14). The Seattle Sounders at home are 10-4-1 +10. With Playoff seeding on the line, it is key for Sigi Schmid's team to take advantage of the comfort of CenturyLink Field.
LA can clinch an MLS Cup Playoff berth with a point. Seattle will have to wait another week to lock in their spot in the second season.
It's time for the Guardians to repel the Galaxy of horrors.
