Leaders Seattle are currently two·places higher than their opponents COLO, when the two sides meet, they will sit in first and third positions respectively.

Colorado Rapids’ campaign so far has seen them accrue 51 points this season

Whilst COLO need a positive result from this fixture, they cannot afford to throw caution to the wind. Another successive defeat for COLO after losing against Real Salt Lake and Seattle Sounders would represent a worrying sign of where they are just now.

Seattle Sounders will be under pressure to remain top, going into the meeting

Seattle must take a positive approach to this game, if they are to get anything out of, following their recent defeat to Houston Dynamo at BBVA Compass Stadium.

League leaders Seattle keep finding ways to win, having secured eight victories in their last 11 matches is astonishing this season. They are the team to beat, with 57 points and sitting at the top of the table having won 17 fixtures, drawn six games, and lost six matches.

Seattle will travel to COLO with a win record on the road that is quite unremarkable, with nine victories and two darts.

As League leaders every game is crucial, so a victory would ensure that Seattle Sounders stay top, whilst maintaining pressure on their rivals.
