What a way to head into the first tricky portion of the schedule. The Sounders improved to 5-0-1 on the young season by beating previously unbeaten Toronto FC 3-2 at CenturyLink Field on Saturday. It was easily the Sounders biggest test of the season and I’d say they passed with flying colors, especially when you consider they were missing Raul Ruidiaz.
This sets up a pretty enticing matchup with LAFC on the weekend, who may well be unbeaten as well depending on tonight’s result. If they are, this will be the latest in a season since 2010 -- and the second latest all time -- that two unbeaten teams have squared off in MLS. To help us preview that game, we’ll be talking to Alicia Rodriguez of Angels on Parade later in the show.
