With this being a midweek preseason game it is unlikely that the Ideal XI start for the Seattle Sounders. That should mean more playing time for Will Bruin, Tony Alfaro, and others. Harrison Shipp will be getting his first playing time since the preseason match against Portland.
Atlanta United loaned most of their third eleven down to Charleston already, so they will be closer to full strength. Sounders and AUFC meet on March 31 on FS1 early in the regular season.
