How to watch
Venue: Dicks Sporting Goods Park, Commerce City, CO
Projected lineups: We know Matt Hedges travelled to Colorado for this one but will he actually start? My gut tells me its a toss up. Personally I think we will see a back four of Walker Zimmerman, Zach Loyd, Moises Hernandez and Ryan Hollingshead tonight with Michael Barrios and Fabian Castillo on the wings.
Prediction: Like I stated in our game preview, I'm going with a 1-1 draw. I think the three games in seven days thing is going to be too much in the end.
What are you drinking?: I'm taking this one in at a local watering hole, so a Peticolas Velvet Hammer is what I'm having.
Here you go, comment below. We'll be adding lineups and commentary as we go along here.
