The Seattle Sounders have won just about everything an MLS team can win domestically. One thing that has escaped them is an international trophy. They’ll have a chance to change that tonight when they face Liga MX’s Club León in the Leagues Cup final.
Even after beating two of the most successful clubs in North America on their way to this Las Vegas final, the Sounders will have their work cut out for them. León have won their first two games of this tournament by a cumulative score of 8-1 and sit fourth in the Liga MX table. They’ve also been one of Liga MX’s top teams over the past few seasons, winning the 2020 Guardianes.
Despite having played on Saturday, the Sounders should be reasonably well rested as that match featured a heavily rotated lineup. Similarly, León deployed a rotated lineup in their loss to FC Juarez on the weekend and should be at full strength in this one.
REFEREE: Ivan Barton (El Salvador); AR1: David Moran (El Salvador); AR2: Juan Francisco Zumba (El Salvador); 4th/4to: Ismael Cornejo (El Salvador); VAR: Tatiana Guzman (Nicaragua); AVAR: Juan Gabriel Calderon (Costa Rica)
