SEATTLE, WASH. – Sounders FC (7-3-2, 23 points) returns home to the Emerald Queen Casino Pitch at Lumen Field tonight to take on Austin FC (2-5-4, 10 points). Seattle currently sits in first place in the Western Conference with 23 points through 12 matches, two points above LAFC, while Austin ranks 12th with 10 points through 11 matches.
Seattle has never lost to Austin FC since the latter joined MLS in 2021, playing to a 2-0-2 record and conceding one goal in those four matches.
The Rave Green are coming off a 1-0 win at Houston on Saturday that featured a goal from Tacoma Defiance midfielder Paul Rothrock, who was playing via a short-term agreement.
