The Seattle Sounders were named the top team in the league in MLSsoccer.com's Week 7 Power Rankings on Monday.
Following a disappointing defeat to Inter Miami at Lumen Field on Saturday, the Rave Green still managed to climb two spots to No. 1 on the back of their historic run to the Concacaf Champions League Final.
"The Sounders are deservedly in the Concacaf Champions League Final and, if we’re being brave and honest here, they’re the favorites against Liga MX’s Pumas," wrote MLSsoccer.com's J. Sam Jones. " Especially if they’re healthy. Right on the doorstep of this great white whale for MLS teams, now it’s about getting the job done at all costs. Play the academy kids in the regular season if you have to. You’re on the verge of the biggest win for any MLS club in league history. Go out and get it."
