MInnUTD Startin XI

The XI | Four Changes for Minnesota

New York City FC is on the road this week as they take on Minnesota United FC in the first matchup to be played at the new Allianz Field. 

As the Boys in Blue took off on Friday, Alexander Callens stayed home with a hamstring injury but Maxi Moralez, who had accompanied Callens on last week's Injury Report, returns to Dome Torrent's starting XI.

For the other three changes: Tony Rocha makes his first start for the Boys in Blue, Ismael Tajouri-Shradi is back in the XI after coming on in the second half vs. Montreal and Ebenezer Ofori begins his fourth match of 2019. 

Meanwhile, Héber, the striker who made his debut at Yankee Stadium last week, is listed as a substitute for tonight's game, along with Jesus Medina and Alexandru Mitriță.

NYCFC remains on the hunt for the first three points of the season as the team gets ready to battle with the Loons on their inaugural night in their new home. Show your support for your Boys in Blue from wherever you may be, tune in to ESPN2 for the showdown or listen at NYCFC.com/Radio.
