Seattle Sounders face Houston Dynamo Tuesday for the first round of the Western Conference Championship.

The Seattle Sounders Football Club will look to continue their journey to become the first repeating MLS Champions since 2012 on November 21st at the BBVA Compass Stadium against the Houston Dynamo. The Sounders will have history against them as they have never been victorious in their MLS franchise history in Houston.

Leading the Sounders will be the newly named 2017 MLS Comeback Player of the Year Clint Dempsey. Dempsey who had scored the only two goals during the two legged series against the Vancouver Whitecaps looks to team up with former Houston Dynamo Will Bruin to score some pivotal away goals to put the Sounders in prime position to advance.

The main question mark for the Sounders remains the health of many key players including team captain Osvaldo Alonso, Forward Jordan Morris and Midfielder/Defender Brad Evans. The game can be seen on November 21, 2017 at 6:30 PM PST on Fox Sports 1 or heard on KIRO 97.3 FM.
