Colorado Rapids

RSL-Rapids: Starting Lineups announced


As kickoff for the Colorado Rapids and Real Salt Lake clash in Utah approaches, we have the starting lineups for you.

There was some mention in our projected eleven that the left wing spot was up for grabs for Colorado. Coach Pablo Mastroeni's choice is what we predicted, with Dominique Badji getting the start.

The surprising change in the Rapids lineup is the benching of Marlon Hairston, one of the main protagonists in the last few weeks. Marco Pappa will be starting on the wing in his place.

This is Colorado's lineup now:

Projected Lineups:

Colorado Rapids 4-2-3-1

Goalkeeper: Tim Howard

Defense (left to right): Marc Burch, Axel Sjoberg, Bobby Burling, Eric Miller

Midfield: Sam Cronin, Dillon Powers, Shkelzen Gashi

Forwards: Marco Pappa, Kevin Doyle, Dominique Badji

For Real Salt Lake, our projections were spot on and they'll start basically the same lineup that they've put on the field for most of the year.
Real Salt Lake 4-3-3

Goalkeeper: Nick Rimando

Defense (left to right): Demar Phillips, Justen Glad, Jamison Olave, Chris Wingert

Midfield: Javier Morales, Kyle Beckerman, Luke Mulholland

Forwards: Joao Plata, Yura Movsisyan, Juan Manuel Martinez
