Beltran, Wingert return to lineup; Attinella continues in goal for match against Philadelphia Union

Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

Tony Beltran and Chris Wingert both return to the lineup today, but Nick Rimando and Luis Gil will both miss out against Philadelphia Union through injury.

The return of both Beltran and Wingert is convenient, given Rich Balchan didn't make the trip because of injury. Jeff Attinella will continue in goal, and after his incredible display last weekend, there's not too much to worry about there. Luke Mulholland makes his second start for the club in Gil's stead. Sebastian Velasquez makes the bench for the first time after suffering a hamstring injury late in preseason.

All told, it's a strong lineup despite several injuries to important players. With Philadelphia Union starting their newly-traded-for striker Andrew Wenger, the test will be an interesting one. He'll want to threaten, but without much time alongside Sebastian Le Toux, maybe chemistry will be an issue.

Real Salt Lake lineup: Attinella; Beltran, Schuler, Borchers, Wingert; Beckerman, Grabavoy, Mulholland, Morales; Saborio, Garcia

Philadelphia Union lineup: MacMath, Gaddis, Berry, Okugo, Williams, Carroll (c), Edu, Nogueira, Fernandes, Wenger, Le Toux
