This Saturday, July 8, 2017 (12:00 PM Pacific) the Seattle Sounders will host Eintracht Frankfurt at CenturyLink Field for a friendly match. Both teams have strong sides and should present an interesting duel in Seattle, Washington.
The American team will have a key absence in Jordan Morris who will be playing for the United States at the 2017 Gold Cup competition. Seattle still has a respectable squad lead by the Uruguayan midfielder, Nicolas Lodeiro who can be a key play-maker for the Sounders.
Head coach, Brian Schmetzer will be unavailable for this match, which means that former Liga MX player, Gonzalo Pineda will serve as the head coach for the encounter. The Northwestern side is currently struggling in seventh with 24 points in the MLS Western Conference and could use this game to get some momentum once the league starts up again.
Frankfurt did not have the best Bundesliga campaign this past season, finishing in eleventh with 42 points. The Eagles will look to have a more successful upcoming season, having already made some key signings like the Mexican defender, Carlos Salcedo. Salcedo will join Marco Fabian at Frankfurt and should be able to solidify the squad. There will be one American on the German side in Timothy Chandler, who should also be a key player to watch in this encounter. The game should be a good test for the Seattle Sounders and should help the team get back on track to winning ways.
