Buzz’s Lineup Prediction

Ricardo Pepi traveled and we think he will be back. His injury wasn’t that severe and he’s got things to prove to close the big transfer money. Phelipe is suspended, so we’ll go with Jimmy Maurer in net again.

Outside of that, we might now see a whole lot of changes from Coach Marco Ferruzzi. Chicharito is a tough mark with good movement, so perhaps Bressan in for Martinez to be paired with Matt Hedges?

I also think Edwin Cerrillo and Brandon Servania are both playing really well and both should keep their spots. Facundo Quignon is still out anyway.
