Watch a crucial MLS matchup live online Sunday as the Seattle Sounders hit the road to face the L.A. Galaxy in a clash of two teams headed in opposite directions, with the Galaxy winners of 11 out of their last 12 home games — and Seattle losers of their last four straight in Major League Soccer competition.
In fact, even with United States international Clint Dempsey back in the side after Team USA crashed out of the CONCACAF Gold Cup, the Sounders failed to score in their last game, a 3-0 blanking to visiting putting the Sounders on the wrong side of a club-record four clean sheets back-to-back.
The Galaxy, however, are set to put a full-strength 11 on the field Sunday afternoon, including Steven Gerrard, Robbie Keane, and most anticipated of all, the MLS debut of 26-year-old Mexico international star Giovanni Dos Santos, the team’s newest “designated player,” meaning that his paycheck is not counted against the team’s overall salary cap.

The game could be considered a must-win for Seattle, not just to break the losing streak, but to hang on to the sixth and final Western Conference playoff spot. The Sounders sit just one point ahead of the Houston Dynamo, with 11 games remaining on their 34-game MLS schedule.
The Galaxy, on the other hand, appear comfortable with 10 MLS games left and 37 points, five points above Seattle and just five off the pace set by the conference-leading Vancouver Whitecaps.
