Seattle Sounders vs Orlando City
Major League Soccer
Date: Thursday, 22nd June 2017
Kick-off at 3:00 UK/ 4:00 CET
Venue: Century Link Field (Seattle).
Seattle Sounders must improve their away performances if they are to earn a play-off spot this season. They lost 2-1 to New York City on the weekend to suffer the fourth consecutive away defeat on the bounce.
Meanwhile, their home record is totally opposite. They are coming on the back of three wins in a row, all by the same 1-0 margin. Moreover, they lost just once in 7 home matches so far this season with 4 wins and 2 draws. Also, they are one of the best defensive units at home, having conceded just 5 goals in 7 matches.
Sounders are 8th in the Western Conference table, just 1 point below play-off spots.
Orlando City have faded away since making a brilliant start to the 2017 MLS season. There are only 1 win in their 9 matches. A big downfall for a team that won 6 of their first 7 matches.
However, the early surge place Orlando at fourth in the Eastern Conference table.
Away from home, Orlando managed just 1 win whole season. Their defending has also come under question after conceding 11 goals during the period.
