If Seattle Sounders FC continue to dominate FC Dallas as they have in MLS play the first leg will go quite well. Tonight's wet and loud match will pick up after a 2015 series that was all Sounders (1-0-1 +3), and an MLS record that is also all Seattle (9-3-5 +11). Away goals are in play, so keeping FCD off the board will help quite a bit. Their top three scorers are all from the midfield (Castillo, Diaz, Barrios). Sigi will need his fullbacks to control that wide play. Castillo, Diaz and Barrios have combined for zero goals and zero assists in their careers against the Sounders.

FCD may have set-piece wonder Michel on the pitch which will limit Seattle's ability to foul tactically.

The Sounders offense is as good as ever. After pounding LA for three-point-five goals on Wednesday, without Martins netting one, the hydra is back. If Dallas can stop Dempsey (3 goals and an assist in last 2 played) and Martins (15/6 on season) there's still Haedo Valdez, Ivanschitz, Pappa, Barrett and Neagle. Against their last 10 MLS opponents Seattle netted 20 goals (includes an MLS Cup Playoff win and a CCL pasting of Vancouver).

Tune in at 6:30 PM today on Fox Sports 1.
