It's been several years since Seattle and RSL have met in the postseason. They went head-to-head in both 2011 and 2012 with RSL advancing in 2011 and the Sounders in 2012.
RSL have a winning all-time record against Seattle in the regular season (12W-10L-4D), though Seattle have won the bulk of the matches played at CenturyLink, site of Wednesday's Conference Semi (10W-3L-3D record in regular season and playoffs combined).
Real Salt Lake thumped Seattle 3-0 at the RioT in their last meeting on August 14 behind goals from Sam Johnson, Albert Rusnak and Corey Baird. Seattle won the match at CenturyLink this year 1-0 on April 6 with Nico Lodeiro finding the back of the net.
The last five meetings between the teams at CenturyLink have been one-goal affairs with RSL coming away with just one win in 2018 on a Bofo Saucedo golazo.
