Colorado Rapids Vs. Real Salt Lake Live, 2011 MLS: Lineups

The Rocky Mountain Cup rivalry match is here! The Colorado Rapids host Real Salt Lake on ESPN2 tonight, starting at 10:30 pm EST. Without further ado, here are the starting lineups:

Colorado: Matt Pickens, Kosuke Kimura, Marvell Wynne, Tyrone Marshall, Drew Moor, Wells Thompson, Pablo Mastroeni, Jeff Larentowicz, Brian Mullan, Sanna Nyassi, Omar Cummings

Real Salt Lake: Nick Rimando, Robbie Russell, Nat Borchers, Jamison Olave, Chris Wingert, Yordany Alvarez, Andy Williams, Luis Gil, Javier Morales, Alvaro Saborio, Fabian Espindola

Based on the lineups, both teams look like they are taking this match quite seriously. Although Nyassi and Cummings have not played consistently this season because of injury and the depth, both have contributed in key moments during the season and their collective speed should definitely be cause for concern for the RSL defense. Meanwhile, Real Salt Lake are playing many automatic starters, although Yordany Alvarez is getting more time here at the end of the season. The big task, besides getting a victory, for RSL is to help Javi Morales get in full match fitness ahead of the playoffs. This game should provide a good test for him, as the atmosphere will likely be played at a playoff intensity.
