FULL-TIME: Two second-half goals saw the Sounders win 2-0 against the Vancouver Whitecaps on Tuesday Raúl Ruidíaz scored the first, then set Nicolas Lodeiro for the second as the Sounders regained the lead in the Western Conference and qualified for the playoffs for the 12th time

WHITECAPS 0, SOUNDERS 2: Raúl Ruidíaz made a magnificent gesture to get around his defender, then prepared Nicolas Lodeiro for a relatively easy finish in front of the goal to bring the score to 2-0 in the 60th minute

WHITECAPS 0, SOUNDERS 1: Raúl Ruidíaz scored his 10th goal of the season, ending a feed from Nouhou in the 54th minute The game was originally ruled offside, but VAR correctly knocked him down because Ruidíaz was behind the ball even though it was beyond the deepest defender

AT HALF TIME: The Sounders topped possession and pretty much every other category, but came in at halftime tied 0-0 The Sounders shot the Whitecaps 6-0 with the best chance late on a Kelvin Leerdam header that appeared to be tied for goal until a defender blocked it

LINEUPS: The three previously quarantined players are back in the Sounders’ starting lineup Raúl Ruidíaz replaces Will Bruin, Gustav Svensson replaces Jordy Delem and Xavier Arreaga takes Shane O’Neill’s place As an unexpected bonus, Joevin Jones is back on the bench Will Bruin apparently suffered a blow in practice on Monday and was unable to play

The Seattle Sounders face the Vancouver Whitecaps for the third time this season, winning the previous two games by a collective score of 6-1 This will be the first time the Sounders face the Whitecaps on the road, but due to coronavirus border restrictions, game to be played at Providence Park in Portland

The Sounders can move back to the top of the Western Conference and clinch a playoff berth with a win That would extend their record-breaking MLS streak to 12 straight playoff appearances and keep them on track to win the No 1 header series for the second time in team history Raúl Ruidíaz, Xavier Arreaga and Gustav Svensson are all expected to be available for the Sounders, while Brad Smith and Joevin Jones are likely still out

The Whitecaps arrive after winning 3 of their last 4 games after a four-game losing streak
