  DID YOU KNOW?
  • The Cascadia Cup rivals are meeting for a third time this season. Seattle’s Fredy Montero scored in the 90th minute in yet another wild finish at BC Place, leaving the teams in a 2-2 draw on May 19. Montero and Eddie Johnson scored in a 2-0 Seattle win, Aug. 18 at CenturyLink Field.
  • Vancouver has yet to win an MLS game against the Sounders. Seattle has won twice in four all-time meetings in the league, with two draws.
  • The Sounders lost for just the second time since the end of June in their 2-1 home loss to San Jose last weekend that kept them from clinching a berth in the MLS Cup Playoffs.
  • But the Sounders will secure postseason soccer if they avoid a loss against Vancouver.
  • A Whitecaps win could end the playoff aspirations of Chivas USA, the Portland Timbers and the Colorado Rapids, depending on the results recorded by those sides.
