UPDATE 12:05 p.m. — Just saw Mauro Rosales up in the press box. Looks like his quad injury will keep him out of today’s game. Lineups should be out soon.
It’s a nice cool day here at CenturyLink Field where Sounders FC and Chivas USA will face off in the only MLS game of the day. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m.
The main concern for Seattle is the injured status of midfielder Mauro Rosales, who has been limited the past few days with a quad injury. Coach Sigi Schmid indicated Friday that they’ll play it safe with him, which shouldn’t come as a surprise.
Both teams have a pair of absences on international duty — Adam Johansson and Mario Martinez for the Sounders, and Oswaldo Minda and Ante Jazic for Chivas USA — so we’ll see how that affects things from the perspective of depth.
I’ll post lineups below when they become available.
