Seat­tle ended Colorado’s sea­son last year in the Western Con­fer­ence fi­nals. Seat­tle went on to win its first MLS Cup two weeks later over Toronto FC. Jor­dan Mor­ris, who scored the win­ning goal in the play­off game here last year, is away with the U.S. men’s na­tional team for the Gold Cup, as is mid­fielder Cris­tian Roldan. The Sounders (5-7-6 over­all, 1-6-3 on the road) are tied for eighth place in the Western Con­fer­ence, one spot ahead of Colorado.

Rapids: This is Colorado’s sixth game in 18 days (five MLS games and a U.S. Open Cup match). Cen­ter backs Axel Sjoberg (ham­string) and Bobby Burl­ing (foot) are out. The Rapids tra­di­tion­ally play at home on the Fourth of July and haven’t lost on In­de­pen­dence Day since 2012, go­ing 2-0-2 since then.
