The Seattle Sounders are about to embark on a very difficult month of May, but also a month that will give them a chance to climb out of the MLS Western Conference basement after a rough start to the season.
The Sounders are at PP&L Park tonight to take on the Philadelphia Union in one of the day’s more intriguing match-ups as the Sounders look to stop MLS leading scorer Jack McInerney, and the Union defense tries to stop Eddie Johnson, who is back after a long injury layoff.
Today’s MLS schedule is a relatively light one, with only five matches on the docket. The New York Red Bulls are in Columbus to take on the Crew in a clash of Eastern Conference teams with playoff aspirations. Both teams enter with winning records, and today’s winner will receive a big boost in the standings.
