Our prediction for this MLS match:
Lumen Field will host Monday’s football game between Seattle Sounders and Sporting Kansas City, the two teams who are eyeing top position in the Western Conference. Seattle have been impressive at home ground in the first half of the season, which is surely giving fans a reason for optimism ahead of the visit of Sporting. However, given the number of absentees in the home team, we do not believe that there is a big value in betting on the Sounders.
All Bruin, Delem, Frei, Lodeiro, Morris, O’Neill, Roldan, and Tolo are out of contention for the hosts, but Arreaga returns from suspension. The Wizards aim to take advantage of the home team’s absences, but beating Seattle on the road is easier said than done. Taking everything into account, share of spoils is on the cards. Both Gianluca Busio and Alan Pulido are on international duty.
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.
