Check out our analysis, team news, line-ups and see our prediction for this match.

Lower.com Field will host a rematch of the 2020 MLS Cup Final when the Columbus crew play host to the Seattle Sounders on Saturday.

The Crew are on the outside of the playoff picture after their 1-0 loss to the New York Red Bulls on Wednesday, while the Sounders are back as First Out West thanks to a 1-0 win over Dallas.


Prediction for this match

While it’s not uncommon for a defending champion to fight after winning, it’s surprising that the crew isn’t in a playoff position after losing their last five games.

Adding likes from Bradley Wright-Phillips and Kevin Molino In the off-season, no one could have predicted that they would go goalless in nine games this year.

Caleb porterThe MLS team is struggling to complete their passes and has not gotten into the dangerous attack areas, as they play the fifth fewest passes in the 18-meter space of the MLS teams.

Not only are they struggling in the final third, they’re passing the ball way too much in dangerous areas, and those mistakes have bitten them again in the past few weeks.

Their own penalty area has become a shooting gallery for the opposing teams on their current slide, as they conceded 13 goals, the last three defeats being against non-playoff teams.

The crew faced many similar issues a year ago before coming to life and they must hurry to defend their title as they are currently three points behind CF Montreal for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

Seattle Sounders FC head coach Brian Schmetzer on June 27, 2021

After surviving a storm of injuries, the Sounders are back where they expected it to be at the helm of the Western Conference.

A year ago they chose the worst time for an off-game, lost in the MLS Cup final against the crew and Brian Schmetzer will hope that her four games of a winless spin from mid-July to early August is the worst he will see from his side this year.

With many of their veterans returning to the field, the Sounders looked like the dominant team we’ve seen in the Western Conference in four of the last five years.

The Sounders had only 35% possession and fired a shot on target against Dallas on Wednesday, but that was all it took to claim their third straight win in all competitions.

This team has gone through a lot of rotations because of all of their injuries, but they have shown that they are high quality throughout their squad.

This weekend will be another quick turnaround for the Sounders, who only have three days to rest before taking on the crew currently first in the conference just one point ahead of Sporting Kansas City.

Probability: Columbus Crew 1-3 Seattle Sounders

The crew doesn’t seem to be coming up with the right formula to turn their season around and while their opponents are getting healthier, Porter has had to deal with a number of injuries at a very inopportune time.

Seattle has been playing more determined than ever lately, and they will be especially motivated to make sure what happened in Columbus in the MLS Cup final last year doesn’t happen again.
