Sounders vs. Real Salt Lake: Injury concerns for both sides

Heading into the MLS Western Conference Semifinal on Thursday, both the Seattle Sounders and Real Salt Lake are dealing with injury concerns, according to Jeremiah Oshan of Sounder At Heart.

Sounders midfielder Mauro Rosales traveled with the team to Salt Lake City, but is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game. Head coach Sigi Schmid is hopeful he'll have Morales in action, but told Oshan that it will most likely be a game-time decision.

Real Salt Lake is dealing with injury troubles of their own. Forward Fabian Espindola was forced to leave at halftime of Leg 1, and defender Jamison Olave -- who has been recovering slowly from a hamstring injury -- was limited to just 30 minutes of action in a substitute role. Oshan believes that it is unlikely that either player would start for RSL in Thursday's Semifinal.

Game time is slated for 7 p.m. PT at Rio Tinto Stadium.
