Seattle Sounders FC vs New York City FC Preview

Seattle Sounders FC vs New York City FC

Competition – MLS

Stadium – CenturyLink Field

Date: 29th July 2018

Kick-off time – 22:00 GMT

Seattle Sounders have been struggling to score goals this season, but what has kept them going mostly is that they have also managed to stop their opponents from scoring as well.

The Sounders have conceded the second fewest number of goals this season, with only New York RB having conceded less than them.

On the other end, they have scored just 19 times all season.

This weekend, they welcome one of the most potent attacking teams in the division, but with both teams having midweek games, they will feel they have the advantage since they had a day more to rest.

The last time these two teams met, it was a tense affair in the first 45 minutes.

The Sounders went ahead in the first half and looked like they would earn a famous victory, but it wasn’t to be.

David Villa scored a spot kick to level the scores before coming up with the winner just before the 80th minute which helped NYCFC come from behind to win.

New York City FC come into this game with 5 wins from their last 6 games, and they look poised to get another win here however it should be a tougher game than their match against Orlando City last time out.
