Santos Laguna Vs. Seattle Sounders: Projected Lineups

Sounders match card 0414

If last Wednesday was one of the most important games in Seattle Sounders history, today has to be considered even more so. The Sounders do not have to beat Santos Laguna, necessarily, but they probably can't afford to attempt to manage the result either.

As far as we see it, coach Sigi Schmid found a winning formula last week and there's no good reason to change it now. We expect to see David Estrada start alongside Fredy Montero at forward and for the rest of the lineup to remain the same. That would give the Sounders at least two good scoring options off the bench if a late goal is needed. Eddie Johnson looked sharp in his first game with the Sounders and Christian Sivebaek has continued to show some promise in matches most fans don't see.

According to Eben Lehman of FMF State of Mind, we should expect nothing less than Santos Laguna's best. While it's true that this will be their fourth match in less than two weeks, their spot in the Mexican Primera playoffs is secure enough that they don't need to be too worried about blowing it out for this one.
