FCD Lineup Prediction

With Ema Twumasi out, I think Coach Nico Estevez will look to Paul Arriola at right wingback again. Arriola brought some nice offense last time out and Coach Nico doesn’t seem to trust Herbert Endeley‘s defense. That is a viable option though if Arriola is needed up high.

Sebastian Lletget is an X-factor as well. Is he game fit? Could he be a 10 with Delgado deep? Could we see Lletget as the double pivot with Illarra? Both are also viable suggestions.

But I’ll stick with the more obvious trend.
