The race for second place in the MLS Western Conference is a tight one, and tonight’s clash between the Seattle Sounders and Real Salt Lake (10pm, NBC Sports) will go a long way toward determining who the No. 2 seed in the West will be.
Real Salt Lake has a three-point lead on the Sounders for second place, but Seattle has a game in hand and can pull even with a win tonight.
U.S. National team forward Eddie Johnson won’t play tonight for Seattle after starting for the U.S. in last night’s win vs. Guatemala, but Kyle Beckerman and Nick Rimando are in the lineup for RSL after being on the bench for the national team in Kansas City.
