The latest episode from MLSsoccer.com’s Instant Replay is out, and host Simon Borg focused on a couple plays in the Sounders-Timbers game where the hosts might have been lucky to avoid a red card. The footage starts at the 5:30 mark of the video below and Seattle’s Gonzalo Pineda was the recipient of both incidents.
The first came in the 33rd minute on a slide tackle by Pa Modou Kah (who might’ve been lucky to be eligible after a dangerous tackle last week) and the second was in stoppage time on a wayward elbow by Frederic Piquionne.
Borg also had no issue with the PK awarded to the Sounders, or with comments from DeAndre Yedlin afterward saying he was looking for contact.
