Seattle Sounders has won the last three games and is at the top of the Western Conference with 30 points, three more than the Portland Timbers. This Sunday, Seattle Sounders will face Los Angeles FC with the goal of winning their fourth consecutive game and staying at the top. 

Without any doubt, defense is one of the most important aspects in the success of the team led by Brian Schmetzer. In 15 games, the team have only conceded 14 goals, the lowest mark in the Western Conference. Goalkeeper Stefan Frei and defenders Kelvin Leerdam, Yeimar Gómez Andrade, Xavier Arreaga and Nouhou Tolo are responsible for the defensive fortress.

On the other hand, it is the second team that scored more goals. In total, the club scored 34 goals, one less than Los Angeles FC. Peruvian Raúl Ruidíaz is the team's top scorer, with nine goals. He is followed by Jordan Morris, who scored eight goals, and Nicolás Lodeiro, who scored four goals.

Lodeiro and the Brazilian João Paulo are the most relevant players in the midfield. The Uruguayan has delivered five assists during this championship and has scored four goals. For his part, the former Botafogo player has made three goal passes and has scored two goals.
