Five-game winning streaks in MLS are rare.
Playing five games in 15 days isn’t common either.
Only two teams in league history have ever combined the two: the 1997 Los Angeles Galaxy (Sept. 7-21) and the 2001 Miami Fusion (May 19-June 2).
Sounders FC can join that exclusive club Saturday with a win in Saturday’s 7 p.m. home game against Real Salt Lake at CenturyLink Field. Coach Sigi Schmid admitted he didn’t realistically think that would be a possibility going into this busy stretch.
“You hope in your dreams that you might be able to achieve that,” he said.
So do you think the Sounders will do it?
