• Following the 2-1 Seattle win on Tuesday night, Colorado and Seattle have now played 22 times in MLS action, including two meetings in the playoffs. Seattle has won both of the playoff games, though the two teams have never met in Colorado in the postseason. The Sounders victory on Tuesday night snapped a three-game Colorado winning streak in the series. Colorado’s record at home to the Sounders is 3W-5L-1D, and they have only kept one clean sheet against Seattle in those matches.
  • The Rapids have yet to lose in 18 home games in 2016 (12W-6D). The scorelines in all 12 of those home wins would be enough for Colorado to advance or push the game to extra time at the end of 90 minutes. They have only allowed three goals in their last 10 home matches combined and have not conceded multiple goals in a home match all season.
  • Seattle have now won four of their last five league games (counting the playoffs), although they have conceded in three of them. The Sounders’ road record this year is 4W-10L-4D. 12 of the 18 score lines the Sounders saw in 2016 road matches would see them advance or the game go to extra time at the end of 90 minutes. After scoring multiple goals only once in their first 10 road games (pre-Lodeiro), the Sounders have scored multiple away goals in four of their last eight away matches this year.
  • Cristian Roldan completed 40 passes in the Colorado half on Wednesday night, the fourth-most of any MLS player in a postseason game this year. It was also the most of any Western Conference player in a single postseason match this year.
  • In 1,007 minutes with Roman Torres on the field this year Seattle has conceded an average of 0.7 goals per 90 minutes played (including playoffs). In 2,601 minutes without him this year, that number goes up to 1.3 goals per 90 minutes played.
  • Sam Cronin has played 3,224 minutes out of a possible 3,693 minutes for Colorado this year.
  • Counting the playoffs, Michael Azira is fourth in MLS with 111 interceptions (first amongst Western Conference players).
  • Jermaine Jones lead the Rapids with 85 touches in Seattle on Wednesday night, tied for the most touches he has had in a game all year.
  • Colorado’s 35.3% duel success was their lowest in a match all year. Seattle’s 64.7% duel success rate was their highest in a match all year.
  • Jordan Morris’ goal snapped an eight-game scoreless streak for the Seattle rookie. Counting the playoffs, his 13 goals make him the fifth-leading scorer in the Western Conference. In the 302 minutes with him off the field this year, Seattle has averaged 0.9 goals per 90 minutes. With Morris on the field, that number increases to 1.3 goals per 90 minutes (3,306 minutes).
