  DID YOU KNOW?
  • These teams are first and second in the West, with only a handful of games left in the regular season.
  • The last MLS matchup for each of these teams came against the Portland Timbers. Last weekend Fredy Montero scored his 12th goal of the season as Sounders FC drew 1-1 with the Timbers. Then, midweek, Chris Wondolowski came off the bench to score two in a 2-2 draw with Portland.
  • Wondolowski leads MLS with 21 goals this year. Mauro Rosales is second on the assists chart with 13.
  • The 'Quakes have won both previous meetings with Seattle this season.
  • Eddie Johnson is suspended for this match due to yellow card accumulation.
