Clad in Pacific Blue kits adorned with Forza 7 logos, the Seattle Sounders host the LA Galaxy in a meeting between those that were the best and those on their way to taking that crown. It is Sigi Schmid and Brian Schmetzer’s second meeting in MLS play. Their first was a 1-1 draw in LA.
Center referee for the match will be Drew Fischer. Timothy Ford is manning replay.
Sounders are undefeated in their last 11 matches. Schmetzer’s group is 1st in the West and 5th in the Shield entering the weekend. Their 11-7-9 +7 record is powered by a home performance of 8-1-4 +10.
Since taking over the LA Galaxy Sigi Schmid is only 1-4-1 -6. The talent was their largest problem, not their coaching. Their coaching was also a problem. The Galaxy have an impressive 5-6-1 -1 road record, but are only 7-14-5 -12 overall. LA is 9th in the West and 20th in the Shield race.
