What to expect
Expect to see a Real Salt Lake side that's not built to win matches yet, and expect wholesale changes around the 60-minute mark as Jason Kreis's side looks to gain match fitness. Don't expect to see much from Alvaro Saborio (if anything), as he's likely to be rested a bit after a media tour and a string of international matches.
Lineup predictions are nearly useless with preseason matches — we'll undoubtedly see a whole slew of players out there tomorrow — but it's worth touching on regardless.
These are difficult predictions to make because they don't necessarily reflect what the coaching staff is setting out to do — for instance, I've failed in finding a spot for Khari Stephenson, but I bet he'll play; I have no clue if Tony Beltran is ready for minutes yet, I've thrown in trialist Nickardo Blake at right back (I think that's his favored position) — and none of that may come off. I've also kept Robbie Findley out as he regains fitness.
