Sounders FC vs. Real Salt Lake, lineups

rsl playoff away2.jpgSANDY, Utah–Apologies for the dark picture. I’m sure the lights will come on soon here at a windy Rio Tinto Stadium and I’ll update the photo. (Updated).

Well, here we are.

The first must-win game of the MLS season, the second leg of a Western Conference semifinal against Real Salt Lake. The series is tied 0-0 after the first leg last week and we must have a winner tonight — even if it takes overtime or penalty kicks.

The big question for the Sounders will be the availability of Mauro Rosales (is he in the 18?) and the role of Eddie Johnson (does he start?). RSL has personnel questions regarding Jamison Olave and Fabian Espindola.

Remember, Seattle has gone 389 minutes scoreless against Real Salt Lake dating to last year’s playoffs.

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 Brad Evans, M Osvaldo Alonso, M Christian Tiffert, M Mario Martinez, F Fredy Montero, F Eddie Johnson

Sounders FC bench: GK Marcus Hahnemann, D Zach Scott, M Andy Rose, M Alex Caskey, M Steve Zakuani, F/M David Estrada, F Sammy Ochoa

Real Salt Lake lineup: GK Nick Rimando, D Tony Beltran, D Jamison Olave, D Nat Borchers, D Chris Wingert, M Ned Grabavoy, M Kyle Beckerman, M Javier Morales, M Will Johnson, F Paulo Jr., F Alvaro Saborio

Real Salt Lake bench: GK Kyle Reynish, D Kwame Watson-Siriboe, M Yordany Alvarez, M Luis Gil, M Jonny Steele, D Kenny Mansally, F Fabian Espindola
