Match Day Quick Reference Card: Sounders at Isidro Metapan

If Sigi follows through with his assertion that he'll play a significant number of his starters from Saturday's match tonight, this is what we expect.

Most notable among this bunch is Alvaro Fernandez at right midfield. After a sparkling debut in about 20 minutes against the Earthquakes, it wouldn't surprise us at all to see him show up among the starting XI. We also believe that Steve Zakuani and Fredy Montero will be given the opportunity to try to net an early goal and essentially seal the match for the Sounders.  

It would seem perfectly reasonable for Schmid to give Jeff Parke some rest, and go with Tyrone Marshall in his place. It would even be hard to blame Schmid for also starting Taylor Graham, since he and Marshall were so dominant in the first leg.

We expect to see Mike Seamon in place of Nathan Sturgis, but wouldn't be surprised if the two of them are paired together with Osvaldo Alonso instead getting a much deserved day of rest.

You can expect Keys to the Game to accompany the GameThread. In the meantime, make sure to read our preview of the match and, if you're a bit confused about the tiebreaker scenarios, check out our synopsis.
