Sounders FC vs. Montreal Impact, lineups

montreal home 2013

*     *     *

Welcome back to CenturyLink Field. It’s been a while.

Kickoff here in Sounders FC’s season opener is set for 7:30 p.m. against the Montreal Impact.

There are a few personnel issues to address. Midfielder Osvaldo Alonso (red card in last year’s playoff finale) and defender Marc Burch (three-game suspension) are each out tonight.

Defender Adam Johansson (knee strain) and midfielder Shalrie Joseph (calf strain) are also battling injuries.

Also, note that the Christian Tiffert buyout is now official.

Seattle’s is 3-1 in season openers all-time, all of which were played here, with a 8-2 goal differential. Goal scorers have been Fredy Montero (three), David Estrada (three) and Brad Evans (two).

I’ll post lineups below when they become available…

Sounders FC lineup: GK Michael Gspurning, D DeAndre Yedlin, D Jhon Kennedy Hurtado, D Zach Scott, D Leo Gonzalez, M Mario Martinez, M Andy Rose, M Brad Evans, M Steve Zakuani, F Mauro Rosales, F Eddie Johnson
