No doubt, Real Salt Lake will have its hands full when Seattle arrives Saturday at Rio Tinto Stadium for the opening leg of the Western Conference semifinals.
The Sounders, who boast MLS' best road record at 9-3-5, have already beaten RSL at home this season. Seattle is also playing some of this best soccer.
Fredy Montero, who scored 12 goals with nine assists in 2011, has either scored a goal or recorded an assist in his final eight matches. The Sounders as a group have been explosive, leading the league with 56 goals.
Sporting Kansas City and New York were next with 50.
