The math might suggest that the Seattle Sounders have too much room for error to call tonight’s game against Orlando City a “must win,” but it comes painfully close to that. The Sounders are currently four points from the final and could find themselves six points behind after tonight’s game if other results throughout the league worsen. At the very least, Sounders need a certain point just to maintain some kind of basic positivity.

The good news is that they enjoyed a fair amount of historic success against Orlando, going 4-0-1 against them, including 2-0-0 on the road. The bad news is that Orlando is so good that they took a superb win over New York City FC at the weekend and are now winning by three goals in a row for the first time in over a year.

The Sounders have two extra days off, which may mean they’re a little fresher despite the cross-country road trip. But it would probably be wise to make some rotation, if for no other reason than the first-choice players didn’t quite light up the world.

  • The Sounders have already lost 14 regular season games, tying the most they’ve lost in any season.
  • The Sounders have just one point from their last six games on the road, the first time since 2015 that they’ve faced such a bad track.
  • This will be the Sounders’ penultimate game against the Eastern Conference this year, with 5 of 6 remaining against the Western Conference. They’ve gone 2-4-0 in their previous six games against teams from the East.
  • Orlando has a chance to win their first title of the MLS era a week from today when they host the Sacramento Republic in the US Open Cup final.
