Well this could turn out to be a very interesting match and hopefully nothing like the Union game did a few weeks ago. Sporting is coming off an enormous US Open Cup Semi-final win Wednesday night also against the Union and will be playing in Columbus for this match up. Sporting has seemed to be getting back into their stride that they mostly saw at the beginning of the season but there is still a lot of season left and I am hoping that they are not peaking too early. Columbus has improved of late and are always tough at home regardless. I'm sure Sporting will be doing everything they can, but they have played a lot of matches in just over a month and are probably ready to just get back to having a week between games as after this game they will not have another match until the following week.
I am not entirely sure how I think this one will turn out, but I know that they will be pushing Espinoza pretty hard as he will then be leaving to help represent Honduras in the 2012 Olympics this year. Really I think if Sporting can get a draw then it can pretty much be chalked up as one pointed earned and having dropped two points won't be a question as it won't be two points dropped. Which really isn't a bad thing since they are in Columbus and you always hope to at least draw when away from home.
