The XI vs Atlanta United

The XI: Dome Makes One Change for Leg Two

New York City FC Head Coach Domènec Torrent has made one change to his lineup for the Eastern Conference semifinal second leg vs. Atlanta.

Jesus Medina comes in for Ronald Matarrita as the only alteration to the team which lost the first leg in the Bronx by a goal to nil.

That means Alexander Callens, Maxime Chanot, Ben Sweat and Anton Tinnerholm made up the back four ahead of Sean Johnson.

Yangel Herrera and Alex Ring anchor the midfield behind Maxi Moralez who will surely interchange with Ismael Tajouri-Shradi and Jesus Medina in the three advanced roles behind David Villa.

On the bench, Valentin Castellanos, Ebenezer Ofori and Rodney Wallace are joined by Sebastien Ibeagha, Eloi Amagat and Matarrita.

Kickoff is at 5.30pm ET on ESPN or NYCFC.com/Radio.

NYCFC needs to win 1-0 to advance to extratime, while any other kind of City win see City advance to the Conference final. A tied game or an Atlanta win of any kind allows the hosts to advance.


NYCFC XI: Johnson, Sweat, Callens, Chanot, Tinnerholm, Herrera, Ring, Tajouri-Shradi, Moralez, Medina, Villa (C)

Subs: Stuver, Ibeagha, Amagat, Ofori, Castellanos, Wallace, Matarrita
