Seattle, United States, 23rd November, 2021:The Seattle Sounders FC, standing tall at the 2nd position of the Western Conference, will be hosting Real Salt Lake at 7th in the Western Conference play-offs. The Lumen Field will see the home side start dreaming about lifting the MLS Cup for the third time in their history.
Seattle Sounders FC will be looking to improve themselves as they haven’t registered a win in their last six games but their best defensive record of having conceded just 33 goals in the regular season will give them confidence against a Real Salt Lake who have momentum in their favour.
Real Salt Lake clinched the playoff spot after a dramatic 1-0 stoppage time winner by Damir Kreliach against Sporting Kansas City. The visitors have shown strength in scoring goals but have exposed themselves when attacking by scoring 55 and conceding 56. Real Salt Lake will have to identify and cover up for their mistakes as they are up against a side who has clearly shown stability in the regular season.
