  • Joevin Jones and Will Bruin are available for selection as substitutes, returning from a pair of knocks that kept them out of previous fixtures.
  • Miguel Ibarra, Danny Leyva (left foot fracture) and Alex Roldan (right quad strain) join Yeimar Gómez (left hamstring strain) and João Paulo (right quad strain) on the injury list.
  • The Seattle Sounders are facing off against LAFC for the first time since the Rave Green picked up a 3-1 win at Banc of California Stadium in the 2019 Western Conference Final.
