  DID YOU KNOW?
  • Seattle's record of three goals allowed is tied (with Kansas City) for fewest allowed in MLS.
  • The Sounders haven't recorded a win against Philadelphia since the Union's first-ever game in 2010. Since then, Philly has beaten the Sounders twice and drawn once, when Seattle escaped PPL Park with a last-minute equalizer.
  • Union defender Gabriel Farfan will be suspended for this game. Midfeider Keon Daniel returns from his suspension.
  • The last time Philadelphia scored more than one goal in an MLS game was in a 2-0 win against Seattle on Oct. 8, 2011.
  • Until Steven Lenhart's opener last week, the Union had not allowed a goal in 410 minutes of play.
