  DID YOU KNOW?
  • Seattle midfielder Osvaldo Alonso will miss this match through suspension.
  • Seattle is the only MLS club which has not allowed double-digit goals-against this season. Montreal is currently tied for the second-most goals allowed.
  • In its inaugural campaign, Montreal is 1-4-1 against Western Conference opposition. Conversely, Seattle is 4-1-1 against the East this season and has yet to lose a match on the road.
  • This will be the first meeting between the current incarnations of the Sounders and the Impact.
  • Bernardo Corradi has been the main offensive weapon for Montreal this season. The former Italy international has scored four times and contributed an assist, involving himself in a full third of his team's league goals. The Impact and Corradi must decide before June 30 if the Italian will stay longer than his initial three-month contract.
