Match in Review (Chicago Fire) and Preview (New York City FC)
I swear I did not rig it! Congrats to......ME for winning the June contest, thanks to getting one additional lineup prediction correct (and receiving a bonus point for it), and predicting that the Vancouver Whitecaps would be shut out. Not the most enjoyable way to win the contest, but so be it.
It was a tough match in Chicago. There were also some lineup surprises. Half of the players on the injured list were in the 18, including Christian Bolanos, who made a surprise start. The Whitecaps will now face NYCFC at home on Wednesday night. It is a short turnaround, so it is unclear whether Bolanos will start again. Carl Robinson will not want to rush back his injured players and have them experience a setback, however, he is pretty thin when it comes to options, so he might not have any other choice.
Players like Tony Tchani and Brek Shea have not been pulling their weight of late. Do we see them exit the lineup? Maybe Yordy Reyna gets his first start and we see a change of formation? There is a big question at the back, thanks to Matias Laba receiving a red card in the match against Chicago Fire. Is Kendall Waston healthy enough to enter back into the lineup? If so that makes replacing Laba easy, as you simply move Jacobson up the park. However, if Waston is unable to go, what happens? Does Cole Seiler slot into defense? Do the Caps continue with 4-1-4-1 and play with just Tchani holding?
This is the final match of the first half, so it will decide our champion. Need to make your predictions count for this one! GOOD LUCK!!!
