Buzz’s Lineup Prediction

Ricardo Pepi is out, probably. Coach Marco Ferruzi says there is a chance he could be ready in time. Misdirect or real chance? We’ll see. Since Jesus Ferreira has been such a strong force as an off-striker I’m penciling in Franco Jara at the 9. If Pepi can start, it will of course be Pepi.

Facundo Quignon is also out but that’s an easy swap, Edwin Cerrillo played really well against Minnesota United and deserves the spot.

Paxton Pomykal and Jader Obrian on the wings. Brandon Servania was my Man of the Match last game so I have him keeping his spot over Bryan Acosta who is usually slow to rebound after call ups anyway.

Ryan Hollingshead, Ema Twumasi, and Matt Hedges are, pretty much, locks and I’ll stick in Bressan for now at left center back but it could just as easily be Jose Martinez.

Jimmy Maurer has come off the injury list but Phelipe was awesome last game. Still, I will default to Maurer.
