The Seattle Sounders FC have little time to enjoy their 3-0 victory over the Revolution on Saturday as they get set to play D.C. United today.

Seattle's Head coach Sigi Schmid enjoyed the results from the 4-4-2 formation he used to beat New England Revolution. He is expected not to deviate from last week's success, and might bring the same lineup in today's match against D.C. United.

Seattle is a team that plays well at home, even if they don't have the results to prove it.

If Sanna's  Sounders strike early and fast, as they did in their win over fellow twin brother Sainey and Mansally's Revolution, the loud and intimidating crowd should prevent any thoughts of a comeback by their Eastern Conference opponents.

DC united Coach  Curt Onalfo will not encourage his team to play defensively, looking for a point one as his  big challenge for the game will be finding four defenders to make up his back line.
