This match between Seattle Sounders and DC United has a good ring to it but both clubs are in very poor form in their respective conferences. So this game will take on an extra interest to see which one can win and try to build confidence in the weeks ahead and change their season around.

Seattle Sounders have had a poor campaign so far in the Western Conference and they are in 11th place from 12 teams. They share the same points as bottom club Colorado Rapids with just 8. They are in search of a win having lost 3 games in a row coming into this match.

Home form is also poor with 3 losses from their 5 games and their one win came against Minnesota a team also in the bottom half of the league. But scoring goals has been a real concern for Seattle and it has been a department they have been really lacking in as the coach tries to concentrate on defence. Seattle have scored just 7 goals all season which is easily the worst record in both conferences.

DC United are bottom of the Eastern conference but at least they have gone their last 2 games unbeaten with a win and a draw. They have lost 5 games from their 10 matches and away from home they have won just 1 game. But in the last few weeks their form has slightly improved and they will want to take advantage of Seattle who have really struggled this season.

Seattle Sounders vs DC United: Predictions

Even though Seattle have struggled with goals our main bet will be to see both teams to score. We are presented with two poor teams that have potential and DC United have shown this. To back one of the teams may not be a good idea because of confidence. But both teams will feel they can attack each other so both to score for us is a no brainer.
