Sounders FC vs. Real Salt Lake, lineups

rsl home2 2012.jpg

It’s a cool, cloudy evening here at CenturyLink Field for this Western Conference showdown.

Real Salt Lake sits in second place at 17-11-4 (55 points) and third-place Sounders FC, which has a game in hand, can pull level on points with a win at 14-7-10 (52 points). This was one of the matchups in the conference semifinals last year and it’s looking like that could be the case again this year.

I don’t expect Eddie Johnson to be available for Seattle, but we’ll see when lineups are made available around 6:15. I’d think Kyle Beckerman and Nick Rimando could go for RSL, since they didn’t see any action on USMNT duty.

Patrick Ianni is another question mark for a depleted Sounders’ defense after leaving Tuesday’s practice on a cart. I’ll post the lineups below when they’re handed out.
