Seattle Sounders vs Columbus Crew Predictions

  • Seattle Sounders got off to a winning start to 2020, beating Chicago Fire 2-1.
  • Columbus Crew also tasted victory on opening weekend, defeating New York City 1-0.
  • Seattle had 16 attempts on goal last weekend with six of those on target.
  • Columbus had 14 shots with six of their attempts being on target.

Another home game could give Seattle perfect start

Seattle Sounders have been handed two home games to start the season, picking up a win over Chicago on the opening day before facing Columbus Crew at CenturyLink Field this weekend. Their match last weekend saw them score their winner late on and they were probably a bit lucky to gain all three points from the game.

Some new attacking options made their debut for Seattle last weekend with Miguel Ibarra and Joao Paulo impressing but it was Jordan Morris who came on for the second half and changed the game, scoring twice and putting in a man of the match performance that should earn him a start this weekend.

Disappointing 2019 looks to be behind Columbus

Columbus Crew had a poor 2019 when they finished outside of the play off places but that looks to be behind them with a very professional win against New York City on opening weekend. They’ll look to pick up some points on the road this weekend but face a stern test against the current MLS Cup holders.

New signings had an immediate impact for Columbus last weekend with Mokhtar, Nagbe and Zelarayan in particular impressing on their debuts. The side created plenty of chances and look as though they could have a real impact at the top of the Eastern Conference.

Two league favourites come head to head

Both of these sides are expected to be at the right end of the table at the end of the season and they look closely matched in this game. We’re expecting both sides to really go for the win in this contest and this should lead to plenty of chances. With that in mind, we’re backing this game to have over 2.5 goals.

There doesn’t look a lot to choose from between these two sides though and we think this game will end as a stalemate. We see plenty of goals however and we’re predicting that this game finishes in a 2-2 draw.
