thumbnail Hello,

Goal.com will have every aspect of the highly-anticipated match-up covered.

The coach that led the Columbus Crew to the 2008 Major League Soccer title finally returns to the home stadium of his former team.

Sigi Schmid, now coaching the Seattle Sounders, faces off against his former assistant and protege, Robert Warzycha.

The match is made all the more intriguing because Seattle needs points to clinch a playoff spot, while the Crew would like to clinch the home-field advantage that helped them power their way to the title last season.

The home stadium of the Crew has become a nearly-impenetrable fortress this season, as the Crew have not lost a home match.

Yet Seattle will be pushing to steal the full points, and if anyone can pinpoint a weakness in the Crew's armour, it is Schmid.
