1. Tough result as international matches loom
With SKC scheduled to play a match next Saturday against Orlando City, the club will be without three of their key players, Johnny Russell, Daniel Salloi, and Diego Rubio, all three of which have been called up for their respective national teams.
This loss hits them at a bad time as next week will be an uphill battle against a club that likely won’t be without their regular starting XI.
Not only could SKC be in trouble next week but the Sounders have also closed the gap in the Western Conference standings. Entering next week, SKC will only have a four-point advantage on Seattle.
It’s shaping up to be an interesting month ahead for SKC.
