As it was not a challenge to play without their six regular starters, the Sounds of Seattle He will face an FC Cincinnati side that is one of the hottest in MLS. Yes, a team that has finished in last place out of three straight — a first in MLS history — appears to be hitting its stride for what appears to be the first postseason in history.
FC Cincinnati has lost just one game since dropping a 4-3 decision to CFF Montreal on May 28. They have gone 5-1-11 in 17 games and are 4-0-6 including a 10 game unbeaten streak.
That’s largely down to the strength of their attack, scoring 25 goals and 56 goals in this 10-game span. Defensively they were a little weak as they allowed 50 goals.
- The other time the Sounders faced FC Cincinnati was in 2019. The Sounders won that game 4-1, the first matchup in Cincinnati’s MLS history.
- The Sounders need to win to avoid their lowest point total in a season (47 in 2009, playing just 30 matches), setting a club record for most losses in a season (16).
