RBNY at RSL Predictions / by Brit Byrd

Due to this week's crazy schedule congestion, we will be recording after Wednesday's game in Utah, and including it with discussion of the Seattle game, the US Open Cup, as well as the latest USMNT action.

Before we kick off, we've supplemented our usual Twitter-prediction posts with some short blurbs and preferred starting 11s:


Sam: RSL are without Beckerman, and looked unconvincing against NYCFC and Portland. With two fully rested center backs, RBNY should take this one 2-1.


Peaches: It's going to be a tough time on the road, and we might be without Grelladinho. I think that RSL has enough offensive power to put 2 past us, and I think we'll rally back for a hard-earned road point. It seems like we're going to have some rotation (and dealing with nagging injuries to the likes of Zubar), and we may even see the likes of young guns like Derrick Etienne, Jr. Draw, 2-2.


Brit: Marsch's gamble to rest Collin and Baah on Sunday paid off -- so far. Hopefully their fresh legs see us through another solid defensive game, if not a clean sheet. Also don't see the team losing its eye for goal quite yet. A big Q is if Jesse rotates the midfield, and how someone like Davis might perform. Draw, 1-1.
