Our prediction for this MLS match:
Seattle Sounders will be looking to return to winning ways in the Major League Soccer when they take on Austin FC on Monday morning. Seattle made a promising start to the season, but they need to keep on making progress if they are to win the Western Conference. As always, a man to keep an eye on in the home team will be Peru international Raul Ruidiaz, who has netted six goals so far this season.
Austin FC, on the other hand, suffered a dip in form, with the team losing each of their last three league fixtures. The newcomers do not seem to be competitive at this level, and we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling Seattle’s party at Lumen Field. This will be the first ever meeting between the two teams in the Major League Soccer.
Highlighted Player (Jordy Delem):
Jordy Delem is a Seattle Sounders midfielder who represents Martinique on the international stage. Delem played for the likes of Club Franciscain, Arles-Avignon and Club Franciscain before joining Seattle Sounders in 2016. After making 19 appearances for Seattle Sounders 2 the Martinique footballer signed a first team deal with the MLS club in March, 2017.
It has to be noted that he played as a right back on his Seattle debut against Atlanta United (0-0). Jordy Delem represented Martinique at the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup, but he failed to impress in a 3-1 loss to Mexico. The 180-cm-tall player was born in Le Francois, Martinique and he has a contract with Seattle Sounders which expires in December, 2017.
His main position is defensive midfield, but, as previously mentioned, he is capable of playing as a full back as well. Jordy Delem has both Martinique and France passports, but he decided to represent les Matinino on the international stage.
