Facing the Vancouver Whitecaps for the second time in four days with their CONCACAF Champions League lives on the line, the Seattle Sounders are rolling out one of their strongest ever lineups in group stage play. Among the 11 starters are at least six A-team starters and the other five players all have at least six league starts this year. Those players are further bolstered by the likes of Obafemi Martins on the bench.

The Whitecaps counter with a lineup that features just one starter from Saturday's meeting and only one other player who has been a regular starter this year.
