With a points tally of 19, Salt Lake are now six points adrift of division leaders Sporting Kansas City but a win for the hosts on Sunday could see them jump up to third briefly. As for their recent form, Salt Lake have now won three of their last four and have also won their last five matches in a row at the Rio Tinto Stadium.
As for the visitors, while only their record against the Portland Timbers saw them fail to clinch top spot in the Western Conference last year, Seattle have drastically struggled in the new campaign. After 10 games, Seattle have recorded just two wins, two draws and six defeats, scoring seven and conceding 12 in return, no team in the whole of the MLS holds a worse attacking record than The Sounders. With a points tally of 88, the visitors currenly sit 11th in the table and with only their goal difference keeping them off bottom spot. As for their recent form, Seattle have now picked up just one win in their last five, losing three and drawing one. Even more worrying for the visitors is the face that they have now only managed to record one goal in any of their last five outings.
