Seattle take on Columbus this week and this match looks like its going to be a low scoring game.
At home Seattle have played 7 matches winning 5 and losing 2 and these 2 losses have come against two teams in the top 6 (San Jose 0-1 and Real Salt Lake 0-1) so they will be confident of winning this match as Columbus are no where near that level. All bar 1 of their home games have gone under 2.5 goals and this is mainly due to their defence as they have only conceded 3 goals. Their average goals per game rate at home is under 2.
Columbus have not been playing very well this season and their main problem has been goal scoring as they have only scored 2 goals in their 5 away matches although they have been playing better defensively having conceded just 4 goals in those matches which means that their average goals per game rate is 1.2 and all of their away matches have gone under 2.5 goals.
In summary I think that Seattle should win this match but as both teams struggle to score but also defend well this could be a low scoring game.
