Major League Soccer
Date: Monday, 31 August 2020
Kick-off at 3:00 UK/ 4:00 CET
Venue: CenturyLink Field.
These two teams could be termed as the best in the competition. The Black and Gold are the reigning holders of the Supporters’ Shield, while Brian Schmetzer’s men are the defending champions of the competition.
This season, either have not started with a bang, but still are placed in the top tier of the table. Still, they could aim for a lot more, and go after the pinnacle spot currently in possession of Sporting Kansas City.
Considering the ambitious nature of the two clubs, and their offensive potential, expect a goal-fest this Monday at the CenturyLink Field.

Seattle Sounders vs Los Angeles: Prediction
The Black and Gold had won the Supporters’ Shield the last season, for being the overall best team from both the conferences. En route to this title, they had scored the most number of goals of all the teams in the MLS – 85 from just 34 fixtures.
Meanwhile, Schmetzer’s men won the MLS Cup in 2019, and are the defending champions at the moment. They were also unbeaten in 14 of their previous 16 overall match-ups, and in 14 of their preceding 15 appearances at this stadium.
Moreover, whenever these two teams have locked horns with each other (especially recently), it has led to several goals being scored.
This Monday, both teams will be eager to make a statement to the whole league with a huge win, considering that it’s match between titans.
Taking into account all these factors, expect both teams to find the back of the net this Monday.
