Seattle Sounders vs Atlanta United for the Major League Soccer championship match on Sunday at the CenturyLink Field Stadium
There will undoubtedly be a Seattle Sounders party when they face and beat Atlanta United at CenturyLink Field in what is expected to be one of the MLS’s most disputed game this Sunday.
The home team wants to continue their winning streak and aims to keep their hopes of winning a top spot in the Western Conference. Seattle Sounders played away with Columbus Crew last weekend where they won by 2-1. With this result, the Seattle Sounders have managed to have some peace of mind concerning playoff classification zone.
They have thirty-two points and are in the third position of the Western Conference. The dream of reaching the first position seems to be out of their plans, the difference for Los Angeles FC is eleven points, and that’s complicated to turnaround.
It should be mentioned that both teams are ranked third in both conferences. The Sounders in the last ten games played at home have only lost for one occasion, which makes them favourites in home games.
At Atlanta United, it is their job to defend the MLS Cup trophy, and now that Joseph Martinez has returned from the national team, he’s a valuable asset to ensure that the current champions try to win this match.
Atlanta United clinched a win in their last game beating Saint Louis FC 2-0 at home to secure a place in the United States Cup semi-finals. In the MLS they have thirty points and remain in the third position of the Western Conference.
Atlanta United faced the New York RB in their last game in MLS in a vivacious and balanced match where the result was an impressive 3-3. Atlanta has had inferior performance when they are away from home, having lost four of the last five games, plus they also suffered two or more goals in their previous four away games, which probably means they will experience many complications in this game against Sounders.
The great way Seattle Sounders plays as hosts and the excellent game model that Atlanta United has shown indicates that it will be a game that either team can win. I think the home factor can determine the outcome of this match.
