Sounders go with their most creative lineup vs. Real Salt Lake

Needing a win to guarantee a playoff spot, Seattle Sounders head coach Sigi Schmid is leaving virtually nothing to chance. The starting lineup he selected for Sunday's regular-season finale against Real Salt Lake might not be the absolutely best lineup the Sounders can field -- Nelson Haedo Valdez is on the bench -- but it is quite clearly their most creative one.

Valdez leads a bench with a good deal of firepower if that's what is needed.

This biggest surprise for RSL is that Nick Rimando won't be in goal.
