FCD Lineup Prediction
This is about the least confident I have been in a prediction in some time, mostly because Coach Nico Estevez has been experimenting with multiple formations in training this week. Coach also wants to push Jesus Jiminez‘s minutes up and the former Toronto striker may be close to starting.
Given how the 4-2-3-1 look at LAFC, I’m rolling with it today and Jimenez in. In order to give a more stable base to the double pivot and for some light rotation, I put Facundo Quignon in (I would be happy to be wrong). And because I don’t think this game will be a track meet, I’ve got Jose Martinez as well. Geovane Jesus also keeps the right back spot off his good game.
Bernard Kamungo or Nolan Norris.
