Columbus Crew come from behind to defeat 10-man Seattle Sounders 2-1 away from home in the MLS.

Columbus Crew have registered a 2-1 victory over Seattle Sounders at CenturyLink Field in the MLS.

Visitors Crew had the better of the chances in the opening exchanges, as Waylon Francis and Dominic Oduro came close in the first 10 minutes.

Thereafter, the Sounders stepped up their game, with Dylan Remick and Lamar Neagle testing the opposition's defence.

Kenny Cooper eventually put the hosts in front midway through the first half when he collected Obafemi Martins's pass and shot home from inside the Crew box.

Federico Higuain was unlucky not to restore parity for Gregg Berhalter's side two minutes before the break when his effort from close range came back off the crossbar.

The Sounders conceded the equaliser just before the hour mark. Djimi Traore brought down Oduro inside the box and was sent off for his challenge, resulting in Higuain successfully slamming home the spot kick.

The numerical advantage allowed Crew to push forward for a winning goal, and they eventually got it in the fourth minute of injury time when Justin Meram turned in Higuain's corner from close range.
