The game, set to be played at Dignity Health Sports Park, was originally scheduled for Aug. 26, but a player strike in multiple sports, including much of MLS on the night, meant the game did not take place on the night. While most other MLS teams who did not play that night have already played the makeup match, this one will get in just before Decision Day, the final game of the regular season, which is scheduled for Nov. 8.
Of course, these teams just played each other at DHSP, with the Sounders rolling out comfortable 3-1 winners. I think Seattle are the toast of the Western Conference and so having another game against them, potentially with a playoff spot still on the line for LA, isn’t ideal, but this game was always on the docket and it has to be played at some point, right? Plus, given how wild this season has been, maybe the teams’ form will be completely contrasting in the other direction in the next meeting. We shall see.
