Seattle Sounders vs Colorado Rapids 2016: Game time, TV schedule and live stream for MLS match seven

The 6 PM game is on Q13 Fox (13/113) and Univision-Seattle (50/51/51.1).

Playing at a mile's worth of elevation can be rough. It's part of why teams in Denver tend to have great home records. It's also why the Colorado Rapids are better in the final 30 than their opponents (+1). Seattle Sounders FC will need to survive the 5280 with a reduced lineup. Sigi Schmid is dealing with injuries or injury recovery with both DPs (Dempsey, Valdez) as well as Roldan and Friberg. That is less than ideal. Considering how good both defenses are, this was always supposed to be an ugly game with two goals or less scored, but on this Saturday at 6 PM you should expect more ugly and even fewer goals.

The Sounders can win the 2016 Cannabis Cup. It's not a real thing, but it should be won anyway.

Keys to Game:

  • Score more than a goal (Rapids have a great defense, but have only scored more than one goal once)
  • Get Dempsey into the area (Pablo's men allow run of play headers in the box, that's odd)
  • Play through the elevation (Colorado's defense is perfect in the first 45 minutes of play)
  • Hold possession (Seattle should dominate possession in every third of the field)
