It was Svensson’s first goal of the season.Seattle will face Los Angeles FC or the LA Galaxy in the conference final next Tuesday. The Sounders will host if it’s the Galaxy; they will go to Southern California if LAFC is their opponent. Seattle won each of its last two trips to the conference final under the old format of the MLS Cup playoffs.Svensson’s role for Seattle is a defensive midfielder, but he was the scorer the Sounders needed on a night Rimando made a memorable farewell to MLS after 20 seasons. Rimando was the best player for Salt Lake but couldn’t withstand all of Seattle’s pressure and was eventually beaten late.Rimando finished with seven saves in his final game. He will leave MLS as the league leader in wins, saves, shutouts and games.While RSL controlled possession, Seattle dominated scoring chances, seemingly each one getting closer to finally getting past Rimando. Kelvin Leerdam had a pair of chances denied early in the second half. Rimando first batted away a volleyed attempt then made a quick reaction to keep Leerdam’s deflected cross off Nedum Onuoha from going in for an own goal.Just moments before Svensson’s goal, Rimando tipped Cristian Roldan’s header over the crossbar at the last moment.But Rimando was helpless on Seattle’s breakthrough. The corner kick from Lodeiro came to the near post and without a defender on the goal line at the post Rimando couldn’t react in time.Lodeiro’s insurance goal was started by a perfect pass from Brad Smith to Raul Ruidiaz, who smartly left it off for Lodeiro to finish.Salt Lake’s Everton Luiz was shown a red card in the 85th minute for a challenge on Svensson. RSL finished with just seven shots and only one on target.last_img read more
