Seattle Sounders welcome familiar foes FC Dallas for Sunday’s MLS fixture, both teams looking for a win for obvious reasons.

The Sounders maintained their perfect run last week with a 2-1 away win at Minnesota and have now picked up 4 wins on the bounce. Furthermore, the team managed by Brian Schmetzer is unbeaten in 7 and will be coming with plenty of confidence to dismantle the league leaders.

Still holding on to the top spot in Western Conference, FC Dallas saw their gap with Portland Timbers cut short to 5 points. This is a must win fixture for Oscar Pareja to prevent other teams from toppling them.
