- Mike Petke will certainly be thinking about yellow cards in this one, with five players on yellow card warning: Aaron Herrera, Jefferson Savarino, Corey Baird, Albert Rusnak and Sunny.
- Not on yellow card warning: Luke Mulholland and Kyle Beckerman, both of whom could be important in a second-leg match. RSL’s defense, save Herrera, isn’t on warning, either, and that puts the teamin a better position. In fact, you could argue that three of those players — Savarino, Baird and Rusnak — aren’t likely to end up with a card in any given match.
- We’re all wondering who we’ll see at center back. My money’s on Justen Glad and Marcelo Silva, but don’t be surprised if it’s Glad and Nedum Onuoha or even Silva and Onuoha.
