Who to watch

Sebastian Velasquez! That’s a name you probably remember, right? The Real Salt Lake man is back, and he’s likely to see his first time at Rio Tinto Stadium since May 2015, when he made a substitute appearance for New York City FC. (We won that one.) This will be the first time he’s played there for the home side since 2013.

Look for his dribbling, of course, but I’m particularly curious how he’s progressed: Is his passing improved? Does he look up for a pass before he starts dribbling? Does he take the game onto himself, rather than letting it pass him by? It’s obviously been a while since we’ve seen him, and we can be certain that he’s a different player than he was.
