DID YOU KNOW?
  • Seattle won its first three games at RFK Stadium, including the 2009 U.S. Open Cup final. United finally won against the Sounders at home last year, 2-1.
  • D.C. dazzled in a 4-1 win over FC Dallas last week, but the MLS Disciplinary Committee was less impressed. It slapped Danny Cruz with a fine for embellishment and suspended Brandon McDonald one match for a reckless challenge.
  • The Sounders hit the road for the first time this season fresh off a surprise 1-0 loss to San Jose at CenturyLink Field.
  • Seattle defender Marc Burch reignited animosity before the match with a few choice statements about D.C.'s decision not to renew his contract this offseason. He'll face his old team for the first time in Rave Green.
  • Seattle put Babayele Sodade on the disabled list this week. The forward tore his ACL playing for Canada in Olympic qualifying.
