Sounders FC vs. Santos Laguna, CCL lineups

santos home.jpgWelcome to CenturyLink Field. The minutes are counting down to a 7 p.m. kickoff.

The Sounders host Mexico’s Santos Laguna in the first leg of a CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinal. Away goals count as the first tiebreaker in the series, so Seattle will be wary of conceding.

Only one suspension for the Sounders tonight: defender Zach Scott is out due to yellow card accumulation in the group stage.

It’ll be interesting to see if/where we see Eddie Johnson on the lineup sheet. It’ll also be interesting to see who the backup goalkeeper is behind Michael Gspurning (as of Tuesday’s practice, one hadn’t been named).

Check back here for full lineups around 6:15 p.m. (UPDATE 6:49 p.m. — Lineups posted)
