Gallery: Exclusive photos from Seattle Sounders’ 2-1 win over RSL on Sunday

The Seattle Sounders continued their late-season resurgence with a 2-1 home win over Real Salt Lake on Sunday evening, with Nicolas Lodeiro impressing again in his third appearance for the club.

Seattle are now five points off the playoff places in the Western Conference and have now gone unbeaten through three-straight games for just the second time this term.

The arrival of Designated Player Lodeiro has given the Sounders hope that they can still make the top six after what has been a turbulent campaign. He netted his first MLS goal on Sunday, before teeing up Jordan Morris for the second.

RSL, meanwhile, continue to be hampered by inconsistency. They have only won two of their last ten but are still in a strong position, as they sit fourth in the West.

Joao Plata’s goal gave them a glimmer of hope on Sunday but that chance came from a real defensive mix-up from Seattle, with Stefan Frei dropping the ball at Yura Movsisyan’s feet before Plata eventually tapped in.
