Coach has 'really good handle' on RSL opponent in Champions League

By virtue of a schedule that staggered the games, coach Jason Kreis was able to watch Costa Rica's Saprissa play both of its games in the quarterfinals of the CONCACAF Champions League.

And that means he won't have to hit up Alvaro Saborio for a ton of insight when RSL plays the forward's former team in the first leg of the tournament semifinals next Tuesday at Rio Tinto Stadium.

"I feel like I have a really good handle on what they're about," Kreis told ESPN 700 Radio today, "who their special players are, how they want to defend, how they want to attack. So I don't think there's going to be a whole lot that we need to rely on 'Sabo' about.

"I do think in the second leg of the series, we can really get some insight from Sabo about how they approach their home matches or what it's going to be like for a lot of our other guys," Kreis added. "So we'll lean on him more for that. You know, he knows some of the individual players, and we can talk to him a little bit about some tendencies that some players might have. But tactically, it's a different coach than he played under, and as we all know, all coaches have their own crazy ideas about how they want to play."
