MLS Play Offs: Seattle’s Experience Shows Through Against Salt Lake

Seattle Sounders 2 Real Salt Lake 0

Seattle Sounders are one of the MLS’ most experienced sides, able to take control of even the biggest of occasions and come through looking solid. That is exactly what happened in their Western Conference semi-final against Real Salt Lake, eventually running out comfortable 2-0 winners at CenturyLink Field.

Seattle, always a favourite amongst soccer betting markets having made the Play Offs every year they’ve been in the MLS, made the better start of the two sides as Nicolas Lodeiro's stunning curling strike hammered off the crossbar in minute 5. Despite’s Seattle’s relative control of the game, Lodeiro’s strike would prove to be the best moment of the half as the two sides went into the break all tied up.

Legendary Salt Lake keeper Nick Rimando, who had an excellent time of things in his final ever game, was finally beaten in minute 64 after a cute corner routine from the Sounders. Seattle had to force extra-time to progress past Dallas in the first round, but there was absolutely no signs of fatigue in them as they got their insurance second goal in minute 81 and effectively killing the game off from there.

Everton Luiz’s straight red card put an even sourer note on things when he was dismissed right before the end, however it shouldn’t take away from what has been a highly promising season for Salt Lake.

Sounders however move into another Conference final and you can find odds on them becoming MLS Cup Champion currently priced at +350, a dramatic improvement from the +1200 they found themselves at the start of these Play Offs. Sounders move into their Western Final against LAFC on October 29th.
