SEATTLE SOUNDERS vs. PHILADELPHIA UNION
CENTURYLINK FIELD, Seattle, Washington
APRIL 16, 2016 (WEEK 7, MLS GAME #62)
10:00 pm ET (MLS LIVE)

Clubs at opposite end of their conference standings face off when Seattle Sounders FC play host to Philadelphia Union on Saturday evening at CenturyLink Field. Sounders FC sit at the foot of the Western Conference, coming off their first win of the season with a 1-1 draw at the Houston Dynamo last Sunday afternoon. Union enter the weekend in a tie for the top spot in the Eastern Conference, returning to their early-season winning ways in a 2-1 home win against Orlando City SC last Friday at Talen Energy Stadium.

  • Chad Marshall scored his first goal in nearly two years, since May 3, 2014, literally with the final kick of the game to give Sounders FC a 1-1 draw at the Houston Dynamo on Sunday afternoon.
  • Union won their third match in the last four outings, Tranquillo Barnetta hitting a dramatic free kick winner in the 90th minute for a 2-1 win Friday evening at Talen Energy Stadium.
  • Sounders FC have won the last two meetings between the teams at CenturyLink Field, including a 2-1 win May 3, 2014 in the only encounter between the clubs that season.
  • Union have never lost to Sounders FC at PPL Park. After a 3-1 Philadelphia win vs. Seattle in the grand opening of the new stadium in 2010, the teams played to draws in their next two meetings in Chester, before Union claimed a 1-0 win last June 24 in the only meeting between the clubs.
