New York City FC is back home to celebrate the borough we've called home for five seasons in our annual Bronx Borough Night, as the team gets ready to face off against the Chicago Fire.
Coming off a win in the nation's capital against D.C. United, Dome Torrent's starting XI has seen one change. Alexandru Mitriță is out for tonight's match with the ankle injury he suffered in the second half of Sunday's win and in his place, Valentin Castellanos makes his return from being out himself with a concussion after a collision in Minnesota.
Apart from that one change, the XI remains the same, meaning Héber will make his first start at home at Yankee Stadium after he earned the MOTM award in his first start for in City blue last weekend.
Meanwhile, Ismael Tajouri-Shradi who banked two goals against Minnesota United is available for today's matchup as a substitute.
Join us in celebrating the Boogie Down tonight and cheering on your Boys in Blue as they fight to bring the first home win to the Bronx #ForTheCity!
The XI: Johnson, Chanot, Sands, Callens, Tinnerholm, Matarrita, Ring (C), Ofori, Castellanos, Moralez, Héber
Subs: Stuver, Sweat, Ibeagha, Rocha, Medina, Parks, Tajouri-Shradi
