Projected lineups: Oscar Pareja will likely use a fairly similar lineup that was young and fun to watch a week ago in Columbus in this one. The five players that were out on international duty (Blas Perez, Tesho Akindele, Moises Hernandez, Je-Vaughn Watson, and Fabian Castillo) are all available but several of them did not return to practice with the club until Friday this week.
