Sounders vs FC Dallas live TV: Streaming, schedule and how to watch

Mike Russell / Sounder at Heart

CenturyLink Field will be rocking with ideal weather for a soccer match. Seattle Sounders FC will have two of their Designated Players back in the 18 and FC Dallas will have both of their DPs, but they will be significantly weakened with 3695 of their player-minutes absent from the Saturday night match. That's four of FCD's eleven most used players, as well as a key rotational player.

Seattle can lean on their strengths. They have two powerful monsters up top. When partnered Clint Dempsey and Obafemi Martins are nearly unstoppable. Lamar Neagle offers a secondary option who deserves more goals based on his performance so far this season. The likely loss of Alonso will mean that Seattle needs the midfield to defend as a pack. The backline containment wall has done its job this year, and will be likely to continue.

Tune in at 7 PM on Joe TV.
