Seattle Sounders have the good fortune of facing San Jose Earthquakes while Sigi has near full selection of his forces and while San Jose gives up more than two goals a game on the road (9 goals against in 4 played). While the Rave Green are struggling a bit at home, they still allow less than a goal a game against. Tonight's 7 PM match could be a continuation of the form that has Sigi's men as the 6th best MLS team over the past six matches.
Former Sounders Cordell Cato, Sanna Nyassi, Chad Barrett and Bryan Meredith could all be on the bench. Dominic Kinnear, another former Sounder, will be without the services of Aribal Godoy due to red card suspension. Neither team has a player on the injured list at this time.

Keys to Game:
- Take advantage of possession (it is a Seattle strength and San Jose weakness)
- Keep them out of the box (they're willing to take long shots, Frei can handle that)
- Continue stretch of strong halftime adjustments (San Jose has 4 goals in 1st 15 minutes of second half)
- Punish them late ('Quakes surrendered eight goals in the second half)
