NYCFC is back in the Bronx squaring up against LAFC before the first international break of the season.
Ronald Matarrita is back in the starting XI, making his first start of Season 5 for the Boys in Blue. It’s Mata’s first start of the season after he recovered from his preseason injury.
Another name back in the starting XI is Ebenezer Ofori, who scored his first goal of the season against Orlando City SC to kick off the campaign.
Ismael Tajouri-Shradi, who was listed as questionable during the week, misses out with an ankle injury.
NYCFC welcomes LAFC to the Bronx for the first time ever as the squad looks to earn their first three points of the season.
