Seattle Sounders get a significant home boost after their first points of the year, earned away at Sporting KC. Clint Dempsey is back from suspension. Kelvin Leerdam is back from suspension. Osvaldo Alonso is back from injury. There’s a chance that Victor Rodriguez and Kim Kee-Hee are in the 18. It’s about as strong as the team can be with their current roster.
Minnesota United, meanwhile, is struggling in defense. They give up 15 shots a game (8th in the league) and the 4th most goals against during the run of play. Their offense is okay, if dependent on crosses, but it got a huge boost when they signed Darwin Quintero as their first ever Designated Player.
ESPN is carrying the match Sunday, April 22, at 1:00 p.m. This game is part of MLS’ Greener Goals efforts, and both teams will wear Parley for the Ocean kits.
Armando Villareal is the center referee. His video assistant is Caleb Mendez.
