The Seattle Sounders seek a measure of revenge and their first win over Los Angeles Football Club when the Western Conference foes meet for the second time in a week Sunday at CenturyLink Field. 

The Sounders (5-1-2) are 0-3-0 against LAFC, including a 4-1 loss last Sunday at Banc of California Stadium, their first defeat of the season. Seattle rallied from a two-goal deficit to earn a 2-2 midweek draw against the San Jose Earthquakes.

LAFC (7-1-1) picked up a historic win in their first game at CenturyLink Field, a 1-0 victory in the club's inaugural match last March with Diego Rossi scoring the lone goal.
