Three changes for the Sounders tonight, one forced by the injury to Brad Evans (who is not in the 18 tonight) and the two others likely made with an eye towards Wednesday night's match against FC Dallas. Servando Carrasco is once again starting as a second holding midfielder alongside Osvaldo Alonso. Eirk Friberg is in the 18 this evening, but likely not 90 minutes fit. Also notable; Omar Bravo makes his return to KC's starting lineup after missing over a month due to a sports hernia.
The Sounders lineup would appear to be their standard 4-1-3-1-1 but they're referring to it as a 4-3-3, so that will be something to keep an eye on. Sporting are sticking with their familiar 4-3-3.
Sounders XI: Keller; Riley, Hurtado, Parke, Wahl; Alonso, Carrasco, Fernandez, Rosales; Montero, Levesque
Sounders Subs: Boss, Scott, Ianni, Friberg, Jaqua, Fucito, Neagle
Sporting KC XI: Nielsen; Espinoza, Collin, Besler, Harrington; Rocastle, Arnaud, Bravo; Smith, Bunbury, Kamara
Sporting KC Subs: Diop, Myers, Cesar, Sapong, Sassano, Zusi, Kronberg
