Lineup Prediction

With the longer break, everyone should be pretty fresh so we should see the first-choice XI. Even Jesus Ferreira and Paul Arriola should only have a little travel fatigue and not be overly affected. They are too important not to start.

As much as I would prefer Edwin Cerrillo at the 6 for his long-term development, it’s pretty clear Facundo Quignon is the first choice right now.
