SALT LAKE CITY – Former Real Salt Lake manager and current Sounders assistant Freddy Juarez is being praised by his Seattle colleagues and players ahead of the first-round playoff clash against his former team.

No surprise, but Juarez has been very “valuable” in helping Seattle prepare for Real Salt Lake. He has highlighted “tendencies” and supposedly knows how to make RSL “frustrated,” according to recent comments made by Sounders manager Brian Schmetzer and key playmaker Cristian Roldan.

Interestingly, Real Salt Lake and Seattle have played one and another on one occasion since Juarez made the move to the pacific north-west with Real winning the fixture 1-0 following a Damir Kreilach header in the 48th minute.

Juarez sat in the box for the first half of that game before making the move to the bench for the second 45 minutes.

With this evenings game being played at Lumen Field, the advantage is certainly in favour of Seattle.

Match Info

Real Salt Lake will next travel to Seattle for a date with Freddy Juarez and the Sounders. The single-elimination game will be a part of the first round of the MLS Playoffs with the winner advancing while the loser is eliminated.

The kick-off is scheduled for 8:30 p.m. on November 23rd and will be broadcast via FS1.
