Seattle's offense has continued to churn out quality despite missing Mauro Rosales since September 17th. However, Seattle has conceded at least one goal every game since James Riley went down at right back. The seven-year veteran [Riley], who appeared chipper at Sunday’s practice session, is also one of the few Sounders without an established backup... which in turn played a role in Roger Levesque’s appearance at right back against the New England Revolution. With the club searching for a back-up plan to Riley, Zach Scott has also been deployed at right back with Schmid also mentioning David Estrada’s name as a possible replacement." This has the potential to be a big advantage for Patrick Nyarko, Dominic Oduro and Marco Pappa going into Tuesday's U.S. Open Cup Final. The Fire's Sebastian Grazzini's status is still up in the air although he did train with the team yesterday.
