Sounders vs. Sporting Kansas City live online: Streaming, schedule and how to watch online

Tonight's match is Seattle's second against an MLS team during this preseason.

After trouncing hosts FC Tucson, Seattle Sounders FC move on to face Sporting Kansas City in the 2015 Desert Diamond Cup. Sounders currently lead the standings with 3 points and a +6 goal differential. KC is tied for 3rd as they drew the Rapids 2-2. Tonight's match is the third of the day with the Rapids and Revs starting off the action in Tucson. The hosts face RSL in Kino North Grandstand.

In Seattle's first match of the tourney the 1st XI went 69 minutes. Tonight puts them on a Saturday schedule, and with just two weeks to go until the season starts, getting into that weekend matchday habit probably means a longer run for the 2014 Shield winners.

What to Watch:

  • Can the Sporks threaten? - the SKC attack got much weaker over the offseason. With Graham Zusi still limited their forwards are Dom Dwyer, a Hungarian who doesn't score and Jacob Peterson. It's a significant hole for a team that runs a 4-3-3. Yes, they convert wingers to wing-forwards, but their best is out or hampered.
  • Azira as Alonso - Seattle without Ozzie is a different beast. Azira handled that against Tucson, but it was Tucson. Tonight's test, with a high pressing KC team will test Micheal's decision making and touch.
  • Hail Hydra - Neagle (3), Dempsey (2), Parsemain (2), Cooper (2), Martins, Barrett, Azira and Pappa all have goals during preseason. Who notches their pre-season belt tonight?
  • Depth Choices - Sigi's 1st XI is clear at this point. How the rest of the 18 fills out is still up for debate. Kovar, Scott, Barrett and Cooper are the next four most used outfield players. Will that continue?
