Team news and rosters

Goalkeepers Bingham, Sulte, Ivacic, Vom Steeg
Defenders Van Rankin, Bravo, Zuparic, Rasmussen, McGraw, Tuiloma, Bonilla, Mabiala, Mosquera

Unbeaten in their three matches with the rest of their rivals in this part of the world this term, Portland know a draw would be enough to see them win the round-robin honour between them, the Sounders and Vancouver Whitecaps.

What's more, with all three within a point of each other and knocking on the door of the postseason race, victory would go a long way to boosting their hopes of an outside run to the MLS Cup.

Predicted Portland starting XI: Ivacic; Bravo, Zuparic, Mabiala, Van Rankin; Asprilla, Chara, Loria, Williamson; Chara, Niezgoda.

PositionSeattle roster
Goalkeepers Frei, Thomas, Cleveland
Defenders Arreaga, Nouhou, Ragen, Gómez, Cissoko, Medranda
Midfielders João Paulo, Roldan, Lodeiro, Rusnak, Roldán, Baker-Whiting, Rowe, Léo Chú, Dobbelaere, Vargas, Leyva, Atencio, Teves
Forwards Ruidíaz , Montero, Morris, Adeniran, Bruin, Ocampo-Chavez

2022 will go down in history as the season the Sounders were crowned continental champions - but should they fail to make the postseason push, it will be curious to see how fondly they are remembered.

Victory over Portland would keep them in the hunt for further silverware with the Cascadia Cup too, setting up a must-win clash with the Whitecaps next month if they do so.

Predicted Seattle starting XI: Frei; A. Roldan, Gomez, Arreaga, Tolo; Rowe, Rusnak; Vargas, Lodeiro, Morris; Ruidiaz.
