Next Wednesday at 5:00am GMT, on matchday 9 of the MLS, we will see Seattle play Cin at CenturyLink Field.

Seattle, currently sitting tenth, host sixth placed Cin on Wednesday.

Seattle Sounders’ MLS season, has so far seen them gain 39 points, going into this game

Another victory would be a terrific achievement, but that is what Brian Schmetzer will be asking from his team, as they go into this game on the back of strong results after beating Vancouver Whitecaps 2-1 and Austin 3-0

Also, Seattle have now lost 10 of their last 16 games, a worrying statistic that has to be addressed by Manager Brian Schmetzer. With 39 points, they currently sit tenth in the League. The breakdown for the team’s record is 0 wins, 0 losses and 0 draws.

When Seattle host Cin, they will do so on the back of nine victories, one dart, and five defeat on their own ground.

Seattle Sounders will have 42 points if they manage to secure a victory.

Cincinnati’s campaign so far has seen them accrue 45 points this season

Returning to match-winning form, following a defeat is always a tough challenge, but that is what Cin need now, after their loss to Real Salt Lake at Rio Tinto Stadium.

Also, with 11 draws in 17 meetings, Cin need to develop a strategy for getting over the line in games. They currently stand sixth in the League, with 45 points for a total of 0 wins, 0 losses and 0 draws.

Cin’s away record is remarkable and poses a significant threat to Seattle. In the 15 games they’ve played on the road this season, they have so far won five meetings, drawn six matches, and lost four games.

A win in this fixture, would take Cincinnati’s points from 45 to 48, so far this season.
