This could be an interesting match as SJ Earthquakes have their presumed home advantage while Seattle Sounders are ahead 7 points in the Major League Soccer table.

These are busy days for the home team, as they were in action only four days ago in the Major League Soccer. At least it's nice to return home after that away game at LA Galaxy.

A good away victory last time out for Earthquakes, who won 4-0 against LA Galaxy (placed 12th). Prior to that was the away defeat visiting Portland Timbers (0-3).
