Remember when Seattle Sounders FC was on top the world of MLS? That was 2016. Then in 2017 they met Toronto FC in MLS Cup, again. The Reds were on top after that meeting. 2018 is nothing like those previous seasons.
Both squads are decimated by injury. TFC lacks healthy defenders. SSFC lacks a healthy attack. This rematch between the past two MLS Cup champions is on national TV because it was supposed to be good.
