2. Sounders offense takes over

For the Sounders two offensive weapons, the season opener couldn’t have gone any better.

More from MLS Multiplex

Jordan Morris, who I will touch on later, and Raul Ruidiaz were both on the scoresheet as the duo were instrumental in getting all three points. Nicolas Lodeiro did his part as well to orchestrate the attack that appears to be one of the MLS’ most deadly offensive units.

Seattle may be known for their defensive stability on the shoulders of Chad Marshall, but with these offensive weapons flourishing as they did here, it might be one of the highest-scoring teams in all of MLS.

What is especially pertinent is the presence of Ruidiaz. The Peruvian international was prolific last season, but he only joined halfway through the year. Now he is here for the full season, the Seattle attack could truly come to life, which is bad news for everybody else.
