Gamethread: Chivas USA Vs. Charlotte Eagles, 6/26/12

It's time for the big game! Chivas USA are hosting the Charlotte Eagles at Titan Stadium at CSU-Fullerton this evening (7:30 pm PDT, online stream available here). This is the quarterfinal round of the 2012 U.S. Open Cup, and Chivas will be looking to advance and avoid the upset by the upstart Eagles, who sit two divisions below in the USL-Pro. It should be a great match, as knockout tournament matches always are.

If you missed it, take a look at the match preview from yesterday. The injury situation has changed since the that preview went up, as you'll see in the starting lineups. Speaking of which...

Chivas USA starting XI: Tim Melia, James Riley, Jorge Villafana, Rauwshan McKenzie, Danny Califf, Blair Gavin, Peter Vagenas, Miller Bolanos, Laurent Courtois, Paolo Cardozo, Jose Correa

Chivas bench: Dan Kennedy, Ante Jazic, Ben Zemanski, Alejandro Moreno, Juan Agudelo, Juan Pablo Angel, Cesar Romero

Charlotte's lineups are currently unavailable. If I get them ahead of gametime, I'll put them in the comment section below. I'll also be providing basic commentary and play-by-play during the game. Feel free to leave your own commentary!

Arriba las Chivas!
