Portland Timbers 2 are headed to Tukwila to take on Seattle Sounders 2 in US Open Cup, just five days after the two sides faced off at Merlo Field on Friday. Coming off a contentious 2-0 S2 win in their last match, T2 will be looking to rebound here and break a three game winless streak against USL opposition, while S2 will be hoping to preserve theri unbeaten record at Starfire Sports Complex.
From 2001-2014, Seattle has played 42 US Open Cup matches. 28 of those have been at home, compared to 14 on the road. That's exactly two-thirds of the time they get to host a match. And those matches have been in Tukwila since 2005. And across all those years, of the 28 matches played at home, they've only lost 3. Two of those losses have come prior to using Tukwila for the matches, the third and most recent one came in 2007.
