Sounders FC vs. LA Galaxy, lineups

galaxy home playoffs.jpgPerfect conditions for Sounders FC here at CenturyLink Field before tonight’s playoff game against the Galaxy.

Cold. Gray. Rainy. Lot of upper-deck section open.

You would think the elements would favor the home team, which has to come back from a 3-0 aggregate deficit to the Los Angeles Galaxy in the Western Conference finals. The series winner will host the Houston Dynamo in the 2012 MLS Cup on Dec. 1.

A couple injury worries for both teams. Mauro Rosales and Leo Gonzalez will each be game-time decisions, according to coach Sigi Schmid, as they recover from hamstring strains. Hamstring tightness is also the issue for Galaxy star Landon Donovan and L.A. midfielder Juninho has inflammation in his Achilles.

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 Zach Scott, M Steve Zakuani, M Osvaldo Alonso, M Christian Tiffert, M Brad Evans, F Fredy Montero, F Eddie Johnson

Sounders FC bench: GK Marcus Hahnemann, M Alex Caskey, F/M David Estrada, D Leo Gonzalez, M Mario Martinez, F Sammy Ochoa, M Andy Rose, M Mauro Rosales (late addition)

LA Galaxy lineup: GK Josh Saunders, D Sean Franklin, D Omar Gonzalez, D Tommy Meyer, D Todd Dunivant, M Christian Wilhelmsson, M Marcelo Sarvas, M David Beckham, M Mike Magee, F Robbie Keane, F Edson Buddle
