9 p.m. at Seattle Sounders FC • FS1, 1500-AM
Loons look to end Seattle’s streak
Preview: The Loons (6-13-4, bottom of the West) have a tall task when encountering the Seattle Sounders FC (10-7-7, second in the West) for the second consecutive time Sunday. Not only did the Loons lose 4-0 about two weeks ago, but Seattle is on an eight-match unbeaten streak. It has not lost since a 2-1 result at New York City FC on June 17, and has a chance to tie a club record set in 2011. Seattle has the second-best attendance in the league, averaging 42,799 at CenturyLink Field, and has lost just once at home this season. But this time around, the Loons have right winger Ethan Finlay, who joined the team in a deadline-day trade a week ago from the Columbus Crew SC.
Quotable: “I’m really, really looking forward to the game at the weekend. I know I probably shouldn’t, when you look at their last few results. But in a perverse way, I am.” —United coach Adrian Heath
Numbers: Seattle has gone a club-record 400 minutes without conceding a goal; it has not allowed a score since the 50th minute against D.C. United on July 19.
Injuries: D Brad Evans (back) is out for Seattle. M Bernardo Anor (leg), D Thomas de Villardi (Achilles), D Joe Greenspan (concussion) are out for the Loons while D Marc Burch (groin), M Sam Cronin (neck) and F Christian Ramirez (hamstring) are questionable.
