Sounders FC vs. Real Salt Lake, lineups

rsl home 2012.JPG

It’s a beautiful Saturday here in sunny Seattle as we count down to a big Western Conference showdown between Sounders FC and Real Salt Lake.

This is the last of a five-game stretch in 15 days, so we’ll see how coach Sigi Schmid handles the lineup. Midfielder Osvaldo Alonso (adductor) and defender Patrick Ianni (back) are the question marks in this one. For RSL, star midfielder Javier Morales (quad) did not make the trip.

If Seattle wins, it will become the third team in MLS history to earn 15 points in 15 days.

I’ll post lineups here when they become available.

UPDATE 6:26 p.m.: I’m told Evans has a hamstring issue, which is why he’s unavailable. Ianni is out with the back issue. Duran makes the 18 for the first time. Flaco is available, as expected. Alonso able to start.
