THE TEAM NEWS

SEATTLE SOUNDERS

  • Seattle Sounders stunned MLS Cup favourites Los Angeles in the Western Conference final by defeating the regular season leaders 1-3 and they will now go up against familiar foes Toronto in the season-ending match.
  • Head coach Brian Schmetzer is blessed with close to a fully-fit squad with only Bruin missing, and he may choose to field the same XI that played so well against Los Angeles.
  • Jordan Morris and Raul Ruidiaz will be Seattle's chief threats and their performances will be key in potentially firing the Sounders to a second MLS Cup title, and they will be particularly motivated for revenge given that they lost to Toronto in the 2017 final.

Predicted line-up (4-2-3-1): Frei; Leerdam, Kee-Hee, Arreaga, Smith; Svensson, C. Roldan; Jones, Lodeiro, Morris; Ruidiaz

Unavailable: Bruin (Injured)

Doubtful:

TORONTO

  • Toronto reached their third MLS Cup final in four years with a come-from-behind victory against Atlanta United in the Eastern Conference final.
  • In a repeat of the 2016 and 2017 MLS Cup finals, Toronto are in familiar territory here and will also have deal with the significant factor of the match being played at Seattle's own CenturyLink field.
  • Gonzalez is fit and could replace Ciman in central defence but Greg Vanney is otherwise likely field the same personnel that defeated Atlanta United, although Altidore is touch and go to feature.

Predicted line-up (4-3-3): Westberg; Auro, Gonzalez, Mavinga, Morrow; Delgado, Bradley, Osorio; Endoh, Pozuelo, Benezet

Unavailable:

Doubtful: Altidore (Injured)

THE PREDICTION

Seattle and Toronto meet In the MLS Cup final for the third time in four years after both producing excellent conference final performances. Seattle in particular were sensational in eliminating the fancied Los Angeles and, with the benefit of home advantage here, they are fancied for the victory.
