In my opinion a loss tonight would be a big deal. If RSL were to lose tonight it
would mean they have lost 5 in a row on the road and 4 in a row overall in
league play. 5 of their final 8 are on the road and this may be the
'easiest' of those 5 away matches the other being at Chivas at the end
of September. I think the Supporters Shield is out of reach, but the 2nd or 3rd
spot in the west is still a good possibility, but only if they can get some
positive results on the road. Having said that I think RSL takes
their momentum from Tuesday night into PPL Park tonight and comes away with a
2-1 win. Looking ahead we should have Olave and Schuler back next
month which could prove to be very helpful with some of the tough upcoming road
matches at Houston, LA, and Seattle.
Hopefully some young guys will start and give the players who started against
Tauro a rest.
