MLS Week 11: Minnesota United at Seattle Sounders | #SEAvMIN
Date: Sunday, May 15, 2022
Kickoff: 3:00 p.m. CT
Location: Lumen Field
Broadcast: ESPN and 1500 ESPN (coverage begins at 2:30 p.m.)
What was supposed to be a Wednesday night match turned into a Thursday afternoon showdown in St. Paul due to storms that rolled through and wrecked havoc at Allianz Field. In the end, the Loons were able to secure a 2-1 win with a late Reynoso goal to push them into the round of 16 for the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup. MNUFC will need to rest up quickly because they will be back on the pitch this Sunday in Seattle. In 2022, the Sounders have experienced the highest of highs and lowest of lows. They became the first MLS team in history to win the CONCACAF Champions League, yet have struggled to find the same success in their regular season MLS games. Currently, the Sounders have a record of 2-5-1, landing them in 13th place out of 14 in the Western Conference. While Seattle has historically had the edge on the Loons, their advantage as of late has been just that, a slight edge. In their three most recent matchups, the winner between MNUFC and Seattle was decided by a single goal. Hopefully the Loons make the most of their trip out west and are able to gain another crucial three points.
