  DID YOU KNOW?
  • These teams have never tied in MLS play. Seattle has won five of the six all-time meetings.
  • After a franchise best start to the season, Seattle hasn't won in five games, the most recent a heavy 4-1 loss to open Saputo Stadium in Montreal. "To be frank, it’s embarrassing to lose like that," Zach Scott said.
  • Kansas City rushed through the opening seven games with seven wins. It sits top of the Eastern Conference with 28 points from 13 games. Seattle has 24 from 14, good for fourth in the West.
  • Fredy Montero leads the league with 66 shots and 24 on target. Kei Kamara is second in both categories, having cranked off 54 shots, 23 of which were on target.
