Philadelphia Union vs Seattle Sounders FC Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Philadelphia Union were the latest team to suffer a heavy loss against Atlanta United, as they lost 3-0 at the Mercedes Benz stadium. Julian Gressel, Josef Martinez, and Jacob Peterson were the scorers for the home team, as Philadelphia came away with a first defeat in almost a month. Seattle Sounders ended a five-game winless run with a 3-0 victory over Vancouver Whitecaps. Victor Rodriguez scored the opening goal, but it was second-half goals from Nicolas Lodeiro and Clint Dempsey that made the game safe for Seattle. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Seattle have had a good record against Philadelphia in the last couple of years, as the team has beaten this opponent in four out of the recent six matches. Philadelphia are likely to carry little motivation for a victory, while the same cannot be said of Seattle. Brian Schmetzer sees his team with a great opportunity to top the table – even at the end of this weekend. For this reason, Seattle are expected to come in with a good performance. I would go with a victory for Seattle Sounders. Recent matches involving Seattle have been scoring with less than 2.5 goals in five of the recent six. Even though the head-to-head record between these two clubs have shown several games with more than 2.5 goals, I would expect this match to be a low scoring game with Seattle keen on a solid victory.

Seattle Sounders win – 7/4

Total goals under 2.5 – 6/5

Philadelphia Union Preview

There is little motivation for Philadelphia Union to come in with good performances from now till the end of the season. The club has fallen seven points behind sixth placed New York Red Bulls with only three matches left. The possibility of Philadelphia finishing in the MLS 2017 top six may be mathematically over by the end of this weekend. The club have been the second lowest scorers in the Eastern conference after grabbing just 40 league goals. They have also managed the same number of wins as DC United, who are bottom of the table with a four-point deficit over Philadelphia. Ideally, Philadelphia would want to avoid this bottom position for this campaign.

Philadelphia Union Team News

Ken Tribbett (Achilles tendon), Fabian Herbers (hernia), and Brian Carroll (Achilles tendon) are the players unavailable for Philadelphia Union.

Seattle Sounders FC Preview

Seattle Sounders may have once again slipped out of the top two places, but the club clearly are not out of the running to finish top of the Western Conference. The team are only one point behind table leaders Vancouver Whitecaps after having managed a stunning victory over Carl Robinson’s team. However, Seattle are also aware that three other teams are in the mix for the top two places. Seattle will have to negotiate Sporting Kansas City and Portland Timbers for this position. The top four clubs in the Western Conference are split by just one point. Clint Dempsey has now taken his league tally to 12 goals for the season.

Seattle Sounders FC Team News

Jordan Morris (hamstring), Osvaldo Alonso (thigh), Roman Torres (knee), Brad Evans (back), Harrison Shipp (ankle), and Calum Mallace (thigh) are the players unavailable for Seattle Sounders.
