MLS: Seattle Sounders FC at Minnesota United FC Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

FULL-TIME: The Sounders hit the post twice and had the better chances of the second half, but were forced to settle for a 1-1 tie on Saturday in St. Paul, Minn. The Sounders fell behind early and equalized before the half on Cristian Roldan’s second goal of the season. The tie leaves the Sounders winless in four, but undefeated in three.’s second goal of the season. The tie leaves the Sounders winless in four, but undefeated in three.

MINNESOTA 1, SOUNDERS 1: Cristian Roldan has scored some good goals during his Sounders career but none have been with quite the authority of the equalizer he scored on Saturday. Roldan was able to collect a loose ball near the top of the penalty area and put his laces through a wonderfully slicing ball that nearly tore through the net.

MINNESOTA 1, SOUNDERS 0: Moments after Jordan Morris narrowly missed giving the Sounders an early lead, Ike Opara head in a free kick.

LINEUPS: Five of the six formerly injured Seattle Sounders made the gameday roster, but only two of them are in the starting lineup. Victor Rodriguez effectively replaces Harry Shipp, while Chad Marshall is in for Román Torres. Raúl Ruidíaz, Will Bruin and Nouhou are all available off the bench. Saad Abdul-Salaam replaces the suspended Kelvin Leerdam as well.

Minnesota United is also a bit short-handed as Darwin Quintero is not in the starting lineup.


This will be the first time the Seattle Sounders visit Minnesota United’s new stadium Allianz Field. It’s also the first time the Sounders will face off against Ozzie Alonso in MLS.

Keys to the Game:

  • Minnesota is vulnerable at the back. Assuming the Sounders can start their first choice attack, they will need to dribble at the backline.
  • Darwin Quintero is tricky. One of Cristian Roldan and Jordy Delem will need to make sure to keep track of him drifting into midfield.
