Seattle Sounders have experienced yet another defeat in their Saturday game against LA Galaxy.
This is the 10th defeat of the season so far, and Seattle Sounders will be frustrated by the outcome of the match. Indeed, this was a game that they managed to dominate from the start and failed to score a goal.
This has become a usual pattern for Seattle Sounders where they manage to take control of a game without being able to score a goal.

Seattle Sounder’s coach SigiSchmid admitted that it was a frustrating defeat. He said that his team played well and created some good opportunities but failed to score the important goals. He said that he had nothing to complain as his players gave everything on the pitch. He believes that if they continue to play like this, they will sooner or later experience a change in their fortune.
