Sounders FC vs. Real Salt Lake, pregame and lineups

rsl1 2011.JPGSANDY, Utah–Here we are at the lovely Rio Tinto Stadium. It doesn’t look so intimidating yet, but I’m sure it will be soon. I got a couple more pictures of the scenery after the jump — at least from what I can see in the press box.

Not a lot of people expecting Sounders FC to win this one. Perhaps the underdog role will be a welcome one for once, take the pressure off a little. Certainly Seattle has a chance to sneak a result here tonight with RSL injuries and call-ups affecting the roster.

It will be interesting to see what changes coach Sigi Schmid makes from the midweek game, especially how midfielder Brad Evans is used tonight. We’ll get lineups in about an hour. What are you looking forward to in this one?

Sounders FC starting lineup: GK Kasey Keller, D James Riley, D Jeff Parke, D Patrick Ianni, D Tyson Wahl, M Osvaldo Alonso, M Brad Evans, M Alvaro Fernandez, M Erik Friberg, F Nate Jaqua, F Mike Fucito
