Club Leon vs Seattle Sounders Prediction

Both clubs were in action over the weekend and suffered a 1-0 loss. Though both sides are expected to be well-rested, a long flight to Las Vegas for this game could impact their performances.

The Sounders have been in better form heading into the fixture and we predict they will fight off Leon's challenge with a narrow victory to secure the title.

Prediction: Club Leon 1-2 Seattle Sounders
