The exclusive “15 points in 15 days” club

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?

How will Sounders FC do in its showdown with Real Salt Lake on Saturday?
