Seattle Sounders v Real Salt Lake preview
Seattle Sounders are the holders of the MLS Cup, but they've started this season without the same consistency and quality that carried them through to the trophy last year. After 10 matches, the men in green find themselves floundering in a disappointing ninth position in the Western Conference, outside the play-off spots.
Recent form has been surprisingly poor from the reigning champions too. Brian Schmetzer's men come into this match on the back of a run of seven games which have included just one win, so they'll be desperate to pick up three points in front of their own fans in this game.
Real Salt Lake's season has been equally disappointing in the opening stages of the campaign. After failing to win in their first five games, supporters at the Rio Tinto Stadium will no doubt have been hoping back-to-back wins over Colorado Rapids and Vancouver Whitecaps would kickstart their season but that hasn't been the case.
Since those two victories, the Utah-based franchise have gone onto lose four consecutive Major League Soccer fixtures including home games against Dallas and Atlanta United and two hammerings on the road against New England Revolution and Sporting KC.
In this run of four games without a win, Real Salt Lake have even failed to find the net in their last three games. The Claret and Cobalt have struggled going forward in recent games and with the home advantage, we think the likes of Joevin Jones and Chad Marshall will have no problem easing their side through to a win.
At the other end of the pitch, Clint Dempsey is yet to reach his brilliant best for the Sounders so far this term, but he's still his side's main goalscoring threat and he's still found the net four times already this season.
