FCD Lineup Prediction

Because St Louis City plays fairly narrow and with the struggles on crosses into the box, I think Coach Nico Estevez will go back to the 3-4-2-1. I think that narrow shape also lends itself to Paul Arriola at right back as he’ll freedom to bound forward.

Based on something I witnessed in training, plus Bernie Kaumgo‘s struggles to adapt, and the injury to Logan Farrington, I’m going with Sebastian Lletget at one of the 10s. Eugene Ansah I also keep because of his solid play last game.
