The Sounders have nearly the exact same starting XI for the second leg of the Western Conference finals that they had for the first leg in Seattle last Tuesday, except for Andreas Ivanschitz, who gets the start over Erik Friberg.
Apparently both Friberg and captain Brad Evans were scratched from the matchday squad due to injury.

Aaron Kovar and Tony Alfaro took the open spaces on the bench, which is otherwise the same as it was on Tuesday.
