Seattle Sounders versus Vancouver Whitecaps starting lineup: Cristian Roldan starts at CAM, Clint Dempsey at forward

The Seattle Sounders are hosting the Vancouver Whitecaps on Wednesday (7:30 p.m. PT; JOEtv, ROOT Sports outside Seattle, KIRO Radio 97.3 FM, El Rey 1360 AM) in a pivotal Cascadia clash.

Join us for the Sounders FC Pre-Match Show on Facebook Live at 7 p.m. PT and then tune in to JOEtv for the Cascadia clash between your Seattle Sounders and the Vancouver Whitecaps.

Here is the Delta Starting XI:


- Clint Dempsey starts as the lone forward, farther up the field than his typical No. 10 role.

- Cristian Roldan starts in Dempsey’s place at center attacking midfield, a position Roldan played back in June on the road against the Portland Timbers, while Gustav Svensson starts alongside Ozzie Alonso. Roldan has six goals and three assists this season.

- Joevin Jones returns to the starting lineup at left back in place of Nouhou.
