Five days till first kick... I think its safe to say that we'll roll out with the same 4-3-3 set up that we've had throughout the preseason, although the right wing and each defensive spot other than Olave's seem to be up for grabs. Personally I'm hoping for Sam at RW and a backline of Pearce-Holg-Olave-Barklage. At the very least, everybody is healthy so Petke has plenty of options. Portland went through quite a bit of turnover themselves and I think their team is stronger this year then last. They have a good mix of skill and grit amongst their midfielders and strikers, and Ryan Johnson especially was a handful for us last year even playing on a dismal Toronto team. Tough to make any predictions considering nobody has seen either of the two starting lineups play together in a competitive game, but being the blind optimist that I am I'm calling a 2-1 win for the Red Bulls.
