The Revolution are coming off two dominant wins over Columbus Crew, while the Red Bulls upset the No. 1 seed in the East, D.C. United, in the semifinals.
In the remaining semifinal matchup, the Sounders have some injuries to deal with but will look to have a more potent offense this time behind Clint Dempsey and Obafemi Martins. However, the defense of the Seattle remains a big concern as coming into this game they are tied for first for most goals allowed among playoff teams.
Dallas expects to have Mauro Diaz back into the lineup tonight who is a dangerous player who will be added to an offense that includes Fabian Castillo, and Blas Perez who can cause a great deal of concern for Seattle’s defense.
