Next Sunday at 4:00am GMT, on matchday 14 of the Major League Soccer, we will see Seattle play Caps at CenturyLink Field.

Leaders Seattle are currently 12 places higher than their rivals Caps, when the two sides meet, they will sit in first and thirteenth positions respectively.

Maintaining their position as League leaders will be Seattle Sounders’ primary goal going into this fixture

Another victory would be a terrific achievement, but that is what Brian Schmetzer will be asking from his team, as they go into this game on the back of strong results after beating Real Salt Lake 2-1 and LA Galaxy 1-2

League leaders Seattle keep finding ways to win, having secured six victories in their last eight matches is astonishing this season. They are the team to beat, with 24 points and sitting at the top of the table having won seven games and drawn three meetings.

Playing at home, Seattle have won four matches and drawn two fixtures.

A victory for Seattle Sounders would be a huge boost, giving them the chance to stay on top of the table and put additional pressure to their closest rivals.

Vancouver Whitecaps’ campaign so far has seen them accrue seven points this season

Marc Dos Santos will have impressed upon his team the importance of getting a positive result out of this game, following two successive defeats. First it was Real Salt Lake and then LA Galaxy, however this is something that their opponents will be aware of going into this fixture.

With an unfortunate Caps that has not managed to win in their last League so far, Marc Dos Santos’ men form is worryingly poor. The Village should solve their trend if they don’t want to occupy the lasts places in the League Table. With seven points, they currently sit thirteenth in the League having won two games, drawn one game, and lost six fixtures.

Caps will travel to Seattle with a win record on the road that is quite unremarkable, with one darts.

A win in this fixture would take Vancouver Whitecaps’s points to 10 in the League.
