Sounders vs. Rapids, full-time: Sounders win 4-0

lineups: Joao Paulo returned to the starting line-up and Hiber instead of Raul Ruidias, but other than that, the Sounders team uses the same line-up that it used against Al-Ahly.

The Seattle Sounders kicked off their 15th MLS season against an opponent they have completely dominated over the years, especially at home. In 18 games against the Rapids at Lumen Field, the Sounders have a 15-2-1 advantage, the most recent loss coming in 2016.

Both teams will be looking to bounce back from disappointing 2022 campaigns. Of course, the Sounders missed the playoffs for the first time in 14 years. The Rapids finished one place ahead of the Sounders in the standings, but were still four points shy of the postseason after allowing the second most goals (57) in the Western Conference.

The Sounders will likely field the same 4-2-3-1 they’ve used for most of Brian Schmetzer’s tenure, but with a few tactical tweaks that should give them a fresh look when they’re in possession. The Rapids are expected to line up in a 4-3-3 formation that focuses on pressing forward.
