LINEUPS: Nicolas Lodeiro is back in the starting lineup along with Victor Rodriguez, Will Bruin and Clint Dempsey. In other words, it’s a lineup many of us thought we’d be seeing at the start of the year.

Lodeiro will start alongside Cristian Roldan in the defensive midfield, while Harry Shipp will get his first start of the season in the attacking band of midfielders.

S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y night!
Gonna keep on dancing
To the rock and roll
On Saturday night, Saturday night
Dancin’ to the rhythm
In our heart and soul
On Saturday night, Saturday night

Another Saturday night game. A significant amount of talent is supposed to be back on the field. It’s time for the Seattle Sounders to beat MLS’ original dynasty and climb higher. D.C. United enter the match with poor defense, poor attack and the only reason for them to believe they can win is that Seattle is 11 matches into their 2018 struggle.

Absences: Injury, international duty and suspension

Seattle: Bwana, Morris and Neagle are out due to injury. Alonso, Bruin and McCrary are questionable.

OG United: Is ripe with injuries to guys you likely haven’t heard of — Kemp (groin), Canouse (knee), Odoi-Atsem (calf), Segura (knee), DeLeon (knee), Opare (ankle) are all out. Ok, you’ve heard of a few of them.

Osvaldo Alonso, Nouhou Tolo, and Jordy Delem are all two yellows away from accumulation suspension.

Sorin Stoica is the center referee. His video assistant is Younes Marrakch.
