Toronto FC at RSLs kickoff notes

Real Salt Lake is just making one change to its starting 11 from the group that took the field against the Columbus Crew last weekend. Robbie Findley will start in place of the injured Fabian Espindola, but other than that there are no chances.

RSL’s starting 11 is as follows: Nick Rimando, Robbie Russell, Nat Borchers, Tony Beltran, Kyle Beckerman, Will Johnson, Andy Williams, Collen Warner, Alvaro Saborio and Findley.

Tonight is just the second home game of the season for RSL (1-3-1). Last year RSL finished with the best home record in MLS, while Toronto was one of the worst.

Javier Morales has officially been ruled out for RSL tonight with strep throat. He won’t even dress.

For Toronto, two very notable players won’t be in the starting line-up either. Leading scorer Dwayne De Rosario and big-money Designated Player Julian de Guzman both will start the game on the bench.
