Sounders take on the Philadelphia Union at PPL Park Wednesday, June 24th at 4pm. The match will be on JoeTV and Root Sports out of the Seattle Market. The scouting report says Philly loves to cross, Sapong is expected to start, and we know Dempsey, Martins, Barrett, and Alonso are out for this one.
Philly is good at crosses, long shots, and the offside trap. The Sounders are good at stopping crosses and beating the offside trap so it comes down to can they stop the long shots. It has the makings of a potential barn burner.
