With a crucial save by Kasey Keller on a breakaway by Fabian Espindola in the 79th minute, the pressure is almost unbearable, as Seattle are behind 3-2 on aggregate courtesy of a 2-0 lead in tonight's game against Real Salt Lake. Can the Sounders find a way to score the third and finish a miraculous comeback in the final minutes? Can RSL score one of their own to finish the deal and seal their passage to the Western Conference finals?
Seattle has held possession in the box quite a bit in the past few minutes, and RSL are playing an ice hockey-style of defending, where they will basically shift bodies to get a block on a shot from any angle. Although Seattle needs to make the best chances and not waste their time on low percentage chances, if they can provoke a handball on an RSL player in the box, they might draw another penalty. With time running out, they may need to resort to such desperate measures to get an equalizer.
