SuperLiga: New England Revolution at Chivas USA

Five changes to the Chivas USA starting lineup from the team that faced Santos Laguna Wednesday (or as one press box observer said, the A team is back).

Dan Kennedy is in goal, while Claudio Suarez and Bobby Burling return in central defense, Cary Talley is at right back and Pancho Mendoza at left back (although he and left half Jonathan Bornstein have been switching off in recent games and presumably could again).

Also in midfield: Sacha Kljestan, in what is his last start until he returns from the Olympics; while Dan Paladini gets a rare start (Paulo Nagamura is suspended) and Jesse Marsch returns.

Up front is Atiba Harris and Ante Razov.

Among the options on the bench: new Mexican striker Roberto Nurse (frankly awful against Santos Laguna) and Jorge Flores.

The Revs are without the injured Taylor Twellman, while Pat Phelan (concussion) and Mauricio Castro (groin strain) didn’t make the trip either.

Former Galaxy goalkeeper Matt Reis is in goal, behind a back four of Chris Albright, Amaechi Igwe, Michael Parkhurst and Jay Heaps.

Midfield: Sainey Nyassi, Steve Ralston, Shalrie Joseph and Jeff Larentowicz.

Attackers: Kheli Dube and Kenny Mansally.

Looks to be a tiny crowd here at Titan Stadium in Fullerton for this one.

The game is on Telefutura.
