Real Salt Lake faces FC Tucson today in Desert Diamond Cup action in the penultimate match of the preseason.
With the season opener against LA Galaxy coming up quite quickly — a week and a half now is all we have left to wait— this will be one of the last opportunities players battling for minutes will have to make an impact on Jeff Cassar's thinking.
Starting spots are almost certainly sealed except at forward. The tricky question of who partners Alvaro Saborio remains, and the answer will probably, in the long term, take the same rotational approach it did in 2013. But if we're to narrow our sights on opening day, we still don't know if Olmes Garcia, Devon Sandoval or Joao Plata will start up top. We may get some of those answers — at least in a preliminary sense — tonight.
