Gonzalo Pineda shown a red card for chest-high challenge

For the third straight game, the Seattle Sounders will be involved in a match featuring at least one team playing down a man. This time, it's them, though.

Gonzalo Pineda was shown a straight red card for his cleats-to-the-chest challenge around the 60th minute. It might not have been as violent as the challenge that Kelyn Acosta put on Andy Rose last week, but it's also hard to argue with the call.


What makes it a bit frustrating is that referee Ted Unkel originally pulled out a yellow card but changed his mind.
