Los Angeles Galaxy battled against Seattle Sounders on October 19 in a game that finished with a 2-2 draw and now both teams will be facing off against each other in the last match of the season which will decide with club is going to be claimed as the winners and the champions of the current season.
The coach of Seattle Sounders, Sigi Schmid has questioned as to why the schedule has been organized in this way as the manager does not completely agree with this logic.
“I still don’t think anybody likes the situation of playing a team twice at the end. It works out with us and LA because we’re not going to meet in the first round of the play-offs, no matter how it turns out. But it could have also been a scenario where we could have played these two games and then met in the first round of the play-offs and played four weeks in a row’’ Sigi Schmid said.
The final match is scheduled to take place on October 25 and a victory for Seattle Sounders would be huge for them as they have never won a piece of the MLS silverware and by claiming the triumph will also be history breaking for Seattle Sounders as the club has never managed to qualify for the CONCACAF Champions League but a victory against Los Angeles Galaxy will make it happen.
Marcelo Sarvas and Baggio Husidic scored the opening goals of the match for Los Angeles Galaxy when facing off with Seattle Sounders in what was their first battle. The final minutes of the match were ticking down and it seemed like Los Angeles Galaxy was going to secure the victory but late goals from Clint Dempsey and Lamar Neagle turned the match into a 2-2 draw with both sides having to settle with 1 point.
The 2nd and last battle of the season will be the most important in the history of Seattle Sounders as they have a genuine chance of lifting a trophy they have never managed to secure in their history. Seattle Sounders came from behind and scored 2 goals in their first battle with Los Angeles Galaxy and this just shows how determined they are on making history in this season even if their schedule has been balanced or not.
