LAFC field an unchanged lineup from Saturday’s game:
Minnesota, meanwhile, are running out Brazilian midfielder Maximiano for his MLS debut, as well as giving rare starts to Collin Martin and Harrison Heath.
LAFC are four games unbeaten, albeit coming off their first draw, a frustrating 1-1 tie against FC Dallas. Minnesota United, meanwhile, are on a two-game winning streak at the moment, gaining some confidence with improved defense and the integration of Darwin Quintero, their first ever Designated Player who joined a few weeks ago (let that be a warning to LAFC fans who may be grumbling about how their team signed DPs).
Minnesota are likely to miss a raft of players. Mason Toye is suspended after picking up a red card in the last game, while Sam Cronin, Kevin Molino, Ethan Finlay, Tyrone Mears and Marc Burch are listed as out. Christian Ramirez and Abu Danladi are also risks to miss, so the Loons’ attacking corps may be pretty bare for this game.
LAFC have no suspensions and the players out are Luis Lopez and Marco Ureña due to injury. Will Bob Bradley rotate his lineup with another big game at the weekend? We shall see, since this is the first chance to watch this team on short rest.
