Sounders FC v. C.F. Monterrey, pregame notes & lineups

monterrey home.JPGA beautiful day in Seattle ends with a big CONCACAF Champions League group-stage game against Mexican power Monterrey. Qualification to the knockout round relies heavily on a big result here for Sounders FC (0-1, 0 pts.) against the visitors (1-0, 3 pts.).

Looks like the upper deck is completely tarped off. As is the Hawks Nest and the upper sections of the south end. Other than that, I expect the place to get packed.

Remember Tyrone Marshall is suspended due to earning a couple yellow cards in the first three games. We’ll see if Steve Zakuani is ready to go, but I doubt he’s completely recovered from that pelvic strain. Patrick Ianni is another one to keep an eye on as he’s been ill.

Should be an exciting game. What are you looking forward to in this one?
