Seattle Sounders welcome Borussia Dortmund to the CenturyLink Field for a friendly challenge that will see the visitors kicking off their US tour.
With no stalemate in their last eight outings across all competitions (W3, L5) and seven of those matches producing over 2.5 goals, the hosts can guarantee a lot of entertainment here. Notably, seven of games in that sequence have been settled by a narrow one-goal margin, with five of them ending with the same 2-1 scoreline. Also, for Seattle, the most of action takes part in the second half, as nine of the total ten goals scored in their last four games have arrived beyond the halftime whistle. A probable cause for worry could be the Sounders’ inability to keep a clean sheet that has seen them concede at least one goal in 13 of their last 16 outings.
Meanwhile, it will be BVB’s second friendly match this summer following a 10-0 triumph over the German lower-league outfit Schweinberg. Die Borussen narrowly missed out on the Bundesliga title last term, with Bayern Munich beating bitter rivals to the ultimate prize by two points. Apart from two disastrous performances against Bayern Munich and Schalke 04 that has seen them suffer two defeats by scoring just two goals and conceding nine, Lucien Favre’s men have been impressive over the past three months (W7, D1, L2). Notably, eight of those matches have produced over 2.5 goals while four have seen two or more goals at both ends.
