If the Seattle Sounders are going to win the Cascadia Cup they have to win big today, and they’ll still need help. If the Seattle Sounders are going to make the MLS Cup Playoffs they basically need to win today, and they’ll still need help. This late in the season a match against the Vancouver Whitecaps is as important as ever.
Jair Murrufo is the center ref for the game in his 209th MLS match. Clint Dempsey is still out due to his heart issue. Aaror Kovar is still listed as out, but he participated in practice this week. Brad Evans is questionable. Christian Dean and Kekuta Manneh are both out. Russell Teibert is listed as questionable. Joevin Jones, Osvaldo Alonso and Kendall Waston will all miss their next match if they get a yellow card today.
