Sounders FC vs. Chivas USA, pregame and prediction

hdc 2011.JPGCARSON, Calif.–Apologies for not getting a full prediction post up. I’ve had a few travel delays today, which have put me behind. For the record, I’m calling for a 1-0 Sounders FC win tonight in its regular-season finale at Chivas USA — let’s say Alvaro Fernandez with the goal in the 55th minute, assists to Mauro Rosales and Fredy Montero.

It’s overcast and a little windy here at a cool Home Depot Center. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. and will be broadcast on KONG 6/16 TV and 97.3-FM radio.

I expect Seattle to go with a full-strength lineup. Earlier in the week coach Sigi Schmid said he wants his team to establish and rhythm, and having some guys go two weeks between games won’t do that.

Lineups should be available around 6:45, so I’ll update this post accordingly.

Sounders FC lineup: GK Kasey Keller, D James Riley, D Jeff Parke, D Jhon Kennedy Hurtado, D Leo Gonzalez, M Osvaldo Alonso, M Brad Evans, M Alvaro Fernandez, M Mauro Rosales, F Fredy Montero, F Mike Fucito

Sounders FC bench: GK Bryan Meredith, D Zach Scott, D Tyson Wahl, D/M/F Roger Levesque, M Erik Friberg, M Lamar Neagle, F Sammy Ochoa.

Chivas USA lineup: GK Dan Kennedy, D Zarek Valentin, D Heath Pearce, D David Junior Lopes, D Ante Jazic, M Ben Zemanski, M Blair Gavin, M Nick LaBrocca, M Alejandro Moreno, F Marcos Mondaini, F Juan Pablo Angel

Chivas USA bench: GK Zach Thornton, D Andrew Boyens, D Mariano Trujillo, M Michael Lahoud, F Victor Estupinan, F Jorge Flores, F Chris Cortez
