At 7 PM 40,000 people will again witness the Seattle Sounders FC live at CenturyLink Field. Tonight's opponent are the lowly San Jose Earthquakes.
What to Watch:
- Seattle's weave - Bernardez is a strong defender with little lateral movement. That's a problem when Clint and Oba do what they do.
- Reduced MPG - Perez Garcia is a slight Argentine #10 that can get frustrated out of the game through contact. Azira should be able to do that.
- Ghostbusting - Wondo shows up in unexpected places. Can Sheriff Evans and the Air Marshall understand his use of space?
- Undefeated Schmetz - With Brian stepping in for Sigi can he keep his streak alive?
