Sounders FC vs. Real Salt Lake, pregame and lineups

rsl playoffs away.jpgWelcome to Rio Tinto Stadium on a clear Saturday evening in Sandy, Utah. What a wonderful matchup we have here tonight — probably too good to be played this early in postseason, but enough griping about the playoff structure.

No Mauro Rosales today for the Sounders; he didn’t travel due to the knee injury. Who starts in his place? It’ll also be interesting who gets the call at forward along side Fredy Montero. RSL should be at full strength, minus fullback Tony Beltran. It could be the first time since early in the season that stalwart midfielder Kyle Beckerman and Javier Morales are on the field together.

Feel free to add your pregame comments here. I’ll post lineups when they become available around 6:15 p.m.

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 Lamar Neagle, M Alvaro Fernandez, F Fredy Montero, F Sammy Ochoa

Sounders FC bench: GK Bryan Meredith, D Zach Scott, D Tyson Wahl, M Erik Friberg, M Roger Levesque, F Mike Fucito, F Nate Jaqua
