Postgame Pontifications: What we learned at MLS is Back

The record will show that the Seattle Sounders were roundly outplayed by Los Angeles FC in their MLS is Back Round of 16 match. The 4-1 scoreline was, arguably, even a bit flattering to the Sounders, who had no answer for the LAFC press early on, were a bit lucky not to concede a couple more goals, and didn’t really muster much of an attack until subs starting coming on in the second half.

Taken as a whole, the performance at the tournament was hardly inspiring. The Sounders only looked good offensively in one of their four matches and they only looked good defensively in two of them.
