Seattle Sounders win

Seattle Sounders have been quite impressive in this early part of the season. The hallmark of a great team would be the ability to get results even when they are not playing well. Seattle Sounders have had such events already in the 2021 MLS season. Apart from the opening day win over newcomers Austin, it has been a disappointing start for Seattle Sounders and Brian Schmetzer.

Both teams to score – yes

The biggest trouble for Seattle may come in the form of LAFC, who have been able to get at least a goal in all of their league matches so far. Admittedly, the team did get over 1.5 goals only on one occasion, but the goalscoring prowess within the team can be a problem for Seattle.

Raul Ruidiaz

Raul Ruidiaz is one of the early front-runners for winning the Golden Boot title. The Peruvian has come up with five goals in as many games for Seattle. He did fail to score against San Jose Earthquakes in the recent game, but the 30-year-old cannot be taken lightly in the forthcoming matches.

Seattle Sounders vs Los Angeles: Match Preview and Team News

Seattle Sounders

Seattle Sounders have done exceptionally well to start the season with four wins from five matches. After going up until the MLS Cup final last season, Seattle are priming themselves for another good run. The team has been to extract excellent performances out of many squad members, but the way in which Raul Ruidiaz has started the season will give extra confidence to Brian Schmetzer’s men. Jimmy Medranda, Josh Atencio, and Nicolas Lodeiro are unavailable for Seattle.

Los Angeles

Los Angeles were unable to get past the conference quarter-finals last season. The manner of the start to the 2021 season raises a lot of concern. The return of just one win from the opening four games is not going to be sufficient to meet LAFC’s ambitions. Bryce Duke is out injured, while hitman Carlos Vela is doubtful for the game.
