Today’s match: Seattle Sounders vs. San Jose Earthquakes

MLS: San Jose Earthquakes at Seattle Sounders FC Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

It’s Matchday 3 of MLS is Back, which presents us only one game, but it’s sure to be a good one as the reigning MLS Cup Champion Seattle Sounders take on one of the most aggressive, fun teams in the league in the San Jose Earthquakes.

Can Matias Almeyda’s side execute their aggressive man-marking scheme — soccer’s version of the full-court press — with limited time to train and obviously no recent game minutes? Can Brian Schmetzer’s Seattle team maintain their annoyingly-disciplined defensive structure and hit San Jose on the counter attack?
