The MLS is back in action with another set of playoffs this week as Seattle Sounders take on Real Salt Lake on Tuesday. Both teams have been impressive this season and will want to win this game.

Real Salt Lake are in seventh place in the MLS Western Conference standings and have been plagued by inconsistency this season. The away side edged Sporting Kansas City to a 1-0 victory last month and will want a similar result from this fixture.

Seattle Sounders, on the other hand, are at the top of the league table and have been excellent this year. The Sounders held Vancouver Whitecaps to a 1-1 draw in their previous game and will need to return to winning ways this week.
