Sounders Lineups- Chad Barrett to build a bonfire

Still no Alonso but Barrett and Lamar Neagle are paired up top. Brad Evans is back before going to the gold cup.

Chad Barrett and Lamar Neagle will start up top and look to set fire to this weakened Timbers backline. Still no Osvaldo Alonso in this one as Michael Azira and Gonzalo Pineda start together in the middle of the park. Andy Rose and Marco Pappa will facilitate the attack from the wings as we've seen in about half of the matches this season.

The backline sees one change from the one the typical shutout line with Oniel Fisher starting at LB tonight, instead of RB like he did in Philly, with Tyrone Mears back in at RB. Brad Evans will captain back in his regular CB spot with Chad "Air Marshall".

With Barrett paired up top, Neagle will not have to be the hold up man and can make dashing runs behind the Portland defense that is without DP CB Liam Ridgwell.

The bench has some firepower with S2 regulars Darwin Jones and Andy Craven in the 18. Zach "Mr. Sounder" Scott and Dylan Remick are the defenders and Cristian Roldan is with Tommy Jags as the other starters from Wednesday to be on the pine today.
