Welcome to CenturyLink Field, where it’s playoff time.
You notice the football markings on the field in the picture posted above. The Seahawks logo at midfield is there, as is the lettering and logos in the end zones. The Sounders had hoped to avoid the thick outline to the football field — didn’t happen.
Eddie Johnson had his pregame fitness test, so we’ll have to see if he’ll be available off the bench (though that is not the expectation). Real Salt Lake has some injury concerns, as well, so we’ll see what squad they’re able to field.
I’ll post lineups here when they become available…
Sounders FC lineup: GK Michael Gspurning, D Adam Johansson, D Jeff Parke, D Jhon Kennedy Hurtado, D Marc Burch, M Mauro Rosales, M Osvaldo Alonso, M Christian Tiffert, M Brad Evans, F Fredy Montero, F Sammy Ochoa
Sounders FC bench: GK Marcus Hahnemann, M Servando Carrasco, M Alex Caskey, F/M David Estrada, M Mario Martinez, D Zach Scott, M Steve Zakuani
Real Salt Lake lineup: GK Nick Rimando, D Tony Beltran, D Kwame Watson-Siriboe, D Nat Borchers, D Chris Wingert, M Kyle Beckerman, M Ned Grabavoy, M Will Johnson, M Javier Morales, F Alvaro Saborio, F Fabian Espindola
Real Salt Lake bench: GK Kyle Reynish, D Kenny Mansally, D Jamison Olave, M Yordany Alvarez, M Luis Gil, M Jonny Steele, F Paulo Jr.
Well there you go guys it’s a no go for me tonight. I’m gonna be the biggest cheerleader tonight rooting my boys on. #powercircle
