How to watch

Kickoff: 8:00 PM

Venue: Toyota Stadium

TV: TXA21

Online: MLS LIVE

Projected lineups: I don't see a ton of changes again from Oscar Pareja in this one as he has had two straight games now with this lineup that has done rather well. I don't think having Ryan Hollingshead in the back for another game is a bad thing, even with Moises Hernandez on the bench. The big question may come down to Tesho Akindele or Michael Barrios at right wing. I still think Barrios gets another shot.

Prediction: Like I stated in our game preview, I'm going with a 2-1 win. Three points or bust in every game this month if you ask me.

What are you drinking?: I'm taking this one in the stadium's press box, so for me it will just be water tonight.
