The Seattle Sounders are visiting the Vancouver Whitecaps on Sunday (5:30 p.m. PT; ESPN; Listen on SoundersFC.com) in the first leg of the Western Conference Semifinals of the Audi 2017 MLS Cup Playoffs. Here is the Delta Starting XI:
- Nicolás Lodeiro moves from defensive midfield last week to attacking central midfield on Sunday in the absence of the suspended Clint Dempsey. Jordy Delem slots into the spot vacated by Lodeiro next to Cristian Roldan.
- Midfielder Víctor Rodríguez misses his second straight match as he recovers from a right lateral quad strain.
