Seattle Sounders will look to maintain their unbeaten start to the MLS campaign when they travel to DSG Park Stadium to take on Colorado Rapids on Monday.

The hosts head into the game fresh off the back of a 3-1 defeat against Sporting Kansas City and will aim to quickly bounce back to winning ways.

Colorado Rapids failed to make it three wins on the spin last time out as they suffered a 3-1 defeat away to Sporting Kansas City.

Sporting Kansas raced to a three-goal lead by the 64th minute, before Keegan Rosenberry pulled one back for the visitors.

Despite the defeat, Robin Fraser's men have been impressive in recent weeks. They have picked up five wins from their last seven outings, scoring 12 goals and conceding four.

The fine run of results has seen Colorado Rapids surge to fourth place in the Western Conference, five points behind third-placed LA Galaxy.

Seattle Sounders, meanwhile, played out a 2-2 draw against rock-bottom Vancouver Whitecaps last time out.

Cristian Dajome and Lucas Cavallini were on target for the Whitecaps to turn the game around after Jimmy Medranda opened the scoring. However, Raul Ruidiaz restored parity for the second time in the game with 19 minutes remaining on the clock.

Seattle Sounders are now unbeaten in their last 12 outings across all competitions, picking up eight wins and four draws.

With 25 points from 11 games, Brian Schmetzer's men currently sit at the summit of the Western Conference table with a two-point cushion on second-placed Sporting Kansas City.
