Sounders vs. CF Montreal, live broadcast: game time, TV schedule and lineups

ADVERTISEMENT

LINEUPS: Fredy Montero replaces Will Bruin, who went into “health and safety protocols” on Wednesday, but is otherwise the same lineup that beat Sporting KC 3-0 over the weekend.


The last time the Seattle Sounders hosted CF Montreal was in 2018. Since then, Montreal has changed its name once, dropped two different crests and gone through four head coaches. Perhaps most relevantly, they are also playing much more competitive football these days.

CF Montreal enters this game third in the Eastern Conference with a perfectly respectable 3-3-2 record on the road. Head coach Wilfred Nancie has them playing an exciting style of football that has them leading the Eastern Conference in scoring (30 goals) and giving up nearly as many (28, second-most in the conference).

However, just like its last two games, Montreal will once again lose MVP candidate Djordje Mihailovic. In the two games they have played without Mihailovic, Montreal lost, 1-0, to Austin FC at home and then beat a very exhausted Charlotte FC, 2-1, last weekend.

The Sounders come into this one going 5-1-1 in their last seven, including 3-0-1 in the first four games of this five-game homestand. Currently in seventh place, a win could take them as high as fourth in the West.

  • At the start of the 2022 season, Montreal was the only visiting MLS team with a winning record at Lumen Field, going 2-1-0 here. Since then, Nashville SC and Inter Miami have joined that rather exclusive group, having won their only trips to Seattle earlier this year. Montreal is also the only team to have played the Sounders at least five times and won more than half of those games (5-2-1 overall record).
  • The Sounders will attempt to post back-to-back shutouts in MLS for the first time in over a year.
  • By earning both assists on Will Bruin’s goal last week, Alex and Cristian Roldan became the third pair of brothers in MLS history to be credited with an assist on the same goal. They join DaMarcus and Jamar Beasley from Chicago in 2001 and Chris and Sean Henderson from Colorado in 1997.
