Seattle Sounders vs Atlanta United: MLS Live Stream

Seattle Sounders and Atlanta United will recommence their MLS endeavors as they clash at Lumen Field on Saturday evening. After participating in the North & Central America Leagues Cup, both teams had a hiatus since mid-July. However, they are poised to engage in a cross-conference MLS encounter this upcoming weekend.

During the pause in their MLS campaign, Seattle’s performance has been lackluster, leading to their exit from the Leagues Cup due to two defeats in the group stage against Real Salt Lake and Monterrey. Seattle’s disappointments included a 3-0 loss to Salt Lake, marked by a single shot on target in the entire match, and a 4-2 defeat to Monterrey, squandering a two-goal lead in their most recent outing. Despite this, Brian Schmetzer’s team has showcased more competence in the league, currently holding the fourth position in the Western Conference with 36 points from 24 games. Seattle trails the table-toppers, St. Louis City, by a mere five points and holds a comfortable playoff berth with an eight-point cushion over Minnesota in tenth place, placing them promisingly as the MLS season enters its final phase. While Seattle has maintained an undefeated home record against their forthcoming opponents, they encountered a setback in their most recent encounter, falling short with a 2-1 loss at Mercedes-Benz Stadium last August.

In their previous encounter, Atlanta United outperformed Seattle, yet they must halt a dismal streak to have a shot at securing three points this weekend. Having suffered defeat in their last four matches across all competitions, Atlanta’s form is a concern. Their Leagues Cup journey concluded with a 4-0 defeat against Inter Miami, with Lionel Messi netting twice, followed by a 1-1 draw against Cruz Azul in regular time but losing in a penalty shootout. Before the MLS season hiatus, Gonzalo Pineda’s team had suffered back-to-back losses, positioning them seventh in the Western Conference standings. Despite this, their solid goal-scoring record has helped maintain a playoff spot. While Atlanta United tends to engage in high-scoring matches, boasting the second-highest goal tally in the Eastern Conference, their defense remains vulnerable, conceding the second-most goals among Eastern Conference teams.

Probable lineups

Seattle Sounders probable starting lineup: Cleveland, Roldan, Gomez, Ragen, Nouhou, Paulo, Rusnak, Morris, Lodeiro, Chu, Ruidiaz
