Lineup Prediction

FCD has three games this week and Coach Nico Esteves is for sure working some load management magic. So is this the game he rotates in players and rests someone? Honestly, I have no idea. I haven’t figured out his patterns on that kind of thing yet. But hypothetically, it’s possible.

So for now, I’ll just go with this game in isolation and I would expect, potentially, just one possible change from the normal XI and that’s for injury reasons as Nanu is questionable.
