As kickoff for the Colorado Rapids and Orlando City match at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park approaches, we have the starting lineups for you.
It appears our projected eleven was spot on this week for Colorado. Coach Pablo Mastroeni is sticking with the same central midfield combination of Dillon Powers and Sam Cronin that he’s used the last two games. The bigger news is that newest Rapid, Sebastien Le Toux will start on the wing opposite Marlon Hairston, his first start in Colorado.
Orlando is expected to make three changes though their starting lineup is still unconfirmed.
In only his fourth league game as Orlando’s head coach, Jason Kreis is making likely to make a few tweaks.
Orlando will still play in a 4-2-3-1. With Jose Aja starting in central defense (instead of David Mateos) for his first start as a Lion since coming back from loan recently. In midfield, Tony Rocha will start instead of Antonio Nocerino opposite Servando Carrasco.
The attacking forward will also see Kevin Molino who’ll play in the number 10 role moving Kaka to the left wing and leaving Hadji Barry out of the selection.
