Columbus Crew vs Seattle Sounders Match Preview
Columbus Crew have struggled to climb the table and suffered four losses in a row since mid-June, as Atlanta United snatched a 2-3 US Open Cup win and Caleb Porter’s men struggled to put it behind them – with MLS points dropped in the hands of Sporting KC (0-1), Orlando City (0-2) and most recently Real Salt Lake (1-0).
Crew now host Seattle Sounders for their weekend clash hoping to finally end the unwanted campaign and build on the 17-point tally, desperate to close the gap to the Eastern Conference top 7 as they sit six points behind Toronto (who have a game in hand) after 19 games played.
Seattle Sounders have seen similar woes lately and while they still sit 3rd placed in Western Conference, four losses in last five league outings see them 11 points behind pace-setters Los Angeles FC and the US Open Cup exit in the hands of Timbers (1-2) comes as nothing more of a confidence booster.
Sounders struggled to bring home points as goals scored proved nothing more of a consolation on trips to Sporting KC (3-2), Dallas (2-1), Montreal Impact (2-1) even before a comfortable 3-0 loss at New York City earlier this week. They will now want more and surely hope Crew will not be the same sort of a challenge.
And all things considered, it’s fair to expect just that. However, we don’t feel Sounders have what it takes to bounce back quickly and snatch all three points at MAPFRE Stadium – as we go for the sides to share the spoils for the second time in a row with a Draw priced at 12/5 with bet365.
Still, we do hope for more excitement this time around and we’ll thus go for goals with a Yes on Both teams to score at 7/10 with William Hill, which would finally have Crew finding their form up front and be the fourth such occasion in five trips for Seattle Sounders.
