The Seattle Sounders vs. the Los Angeles Galaxy. The First Leg of the Western Conference Finals is finally here.
Bold Prediction: Seattle’s attack has been clunky while their defense has been the tightest its ever been. It’s like the Sounders somehow traded hats with Vancouver or something. They’ll need to stick to this formula to get a result in Carson.
Of course an in-form L.A., coming off their rout of RSL, will surely test the strength of Seattle’s newfound defensive shape. Ozzie Alonso probably won’t play and this will greatly affect the midfield, allowing Keane and Donovan to find space. I see a 2-1 L.A win, but Seattle with a crucial road goal.
