Obafemi Martins and Clint Dempsey start up top for Sounders FC

Nelson Haedo Valdez gets a rest while Clint Dempsey, Obafemi Martins and Osvaldo Alonso start for Seattle Sounders FC. Valdez is on the bench. Surprisingly Friberg is not in the XI, with Gonzalo Pineda starting centrally. Brad Evans and Andreas Ivanschitz are the wide mids. That puts Zach Scott and Chad Marshall paired in central defense.

The bench has significant firepower on it. Valdez, Pappa and Barret are the attacking options there.

Vancouver is starting Teibert in Laba's place. Former Sounder Mauro Rosales is also on the field.
