Lineup Prediction

Jesus Ferreira is suspended for yellow card accumulation, so Franco Jara will be in. That shouldn’t change things all that much.

Facundo Quignon is off the injured list but Edwin Cerrillo has played pretty well and, in my opinion, had a career-best performance last game against the Union so I keeping him in. Heck, pretty much everyone had a great game against Philly, so keep em all in.
