The Seattle Sounders are taking on the Vancouver Whitecaps at CenturyLink Field on Saturday (7 p.m. PT; JOEtv, Prime Video, 950 KJR AM, El Rey 1360 AM). Here are three matchups to watch:
One of the Sounders’ two pivotal offseason additions, Yeimar has settled in nicely of late and established himself as one of the most intimidating defenders in MLS.

His main responsibility will be keeping fellow offseason acquisition Cavallini off the score sheet.
