When Minnesota United heads to Seattle to face the Sounders FC on Sunday, it will be an immediate rematch for the Loons, who lost 4-0 at home back on Aug. 5.
Though United had two weeks to prepare for the back-to-back meetings, while Seattle beat Sporting Kansas City this past weekend, that extra time hasn't helped the squad in the past. But United coach Adrian Heath said he found specific aspects of the game to work on with that extra time that will help the Loons in their second go-round with the reigning MLS champions.
"I think the fact is that the games will be different," Heath said. "We know that one of the things I was really worried about with [Seattle] was their counterattacking play with the players that they had at their disposal. Now, obviously, we'll approach the game in a slightly different manner, the fact that we're away from home, and we know how good they are on the counterattack."
