It is the first round in the MLS playoffs as the Seattle Sounders host the LA Galaxy in the first leg of the Conference Semifinals. This is the stage of competition in which you must forget some things from the regular league, because there happened surprises in the past. Seattle Sounders FC entered the playoffs as the hottest team in the second half of the season. Seattle Sounders are in very good shape, but LA Galaxy is, too. On seven of the last ten matches of Sounders were more than two goals. LA Galaxy had over 2.5 goals on only five of the last ten matches, but at least 2 goals were scored on eight matches. This year they already played two matches and both won Los Angeles Galaxy with over 3.5 goals - 4:0 and 3:1. Following a humiliating 3-1 loss to LA, Seattle rebounded and only lost two matches of their remaining 14. Sounders FC have the quickest set of wingers in the league - Sanna Nyassi and Steve Zakuani. LA Galaxy have Donovan and Beckham. They actually have different styles in the way they play.
Sounders will play with the same starting eleven which did not drop a single point any of the seven matches they started together: Kasey Keller; James Riley, Jeff Parke, Patrick Ianni, Leo Gonzalez; Sanna Nyassi, Osvaldo Alonso, Nathan Sturgis, Steve Zakuani; Blaise Nkufo, Fredy Montero. Galaxy will make some changes in the midfield. Juninho will likely occupy one of the slots. Anyway, many people consider that it will be match without goals, I believe that we will see opposite. At least two goals.
