Kickoff: 8:30 PM
Venue: Rio Tinto Stadium

Projected lineups: Fabian Castillo is back in the 18 for Oscar Pareja but will he start is the bigger question? Pareja could opt to bring him off the bench in the second half to close out the game or to help put pressure on RSL. Either way, there shouldn't be a ton of changes from the group that started on Wednesday night against Vancouver.
