    HALFTIME: Well, this one started with a bang but ended up being sort of a snoozer. Ruidiaz’s goal is the difference as LAFC has more shots, but not much actually separates these two in this one. It looked like Raul came up with a limp right before halftime, so that’s something to keep an eye on.

    LINEUPS: Seattle goes with an unchanged from their match against Portland. It’s essentially a first choice lineup with Shane O’Neill playing at CB instead of Xavier Arreaga, who is back from injury.

    LAFC inserts Bradley Wright-Phillips & José Cifuentes in the place of injured Carlos Vela and Eduard Atuesta. Cifuentes was added as depth this last offseason, has played in 5 of LAFC matches this year, totally just north of 100 minutes. He has big shoes to fill tonight.

    Capping off what has to be one of the most interesting weeks in MLS history, the Seattle Sounders will resume play tonight against LAFC. This will be the first match at CenturyLink since March 7th! Despite the famous playoff win last season that saw the Sounders defeat LAFC, 3-1, in LA, Seattle has never beaten LAFC in the regular season. Tonight might be the Sounders’ best chance yet to do so. LAFC will be without Eduard Atuesta and league MVP Carlos Vela, and Seattle is mostly at full strength.
