Sounders FC vs. Real Salt Lake, pregame and lineups

rsl playoffs home.jpgHere’s the scene at CenturyLink Field tonight. We’ll either see something historic or the end of the Sounders FC season. Seattle trails Real Salt Lake, 3-0, in the two-leg, aggregate-goals Western Conference semifinal.

We learned yesterday that the Sounders will be without star midfielder Mauro Rosales. The team’s assists leader wasn’t able to recover enough from the sprained knee. The big question is the availability of RSL center backs Jamison Olave and Nat Borchers (both sound iffy with quad injuries).

Otherwise I still expect a few changes from both sides. Lineups will be officials around 6:30 p.m. I’m guessing. I’ll update this post whenever they are.
