Minnesota has seven players, five starters, on the injury list with only one, backup forward Aaron Schoenfeld (lower left leg), who could come off it soon. On the other hand, the Loons will also win back Romain Metanire after the 2019 MLS star right-back served a one-game red card suspension on Sunday.
However, there is a certainty regarding the next games. Coach Adrian Heath will have to plan line up without seven players: Tyler Miller (hips), Ike Opara (undisclosed injury), Luis Amarilla (ankle), Ozzie Alonso (hamstring), Ethan Finlay (knee) and Greg Ranjitsingh (knee). Plus, star midfielder Emanuel Reynoso had a sore groin and came off the bench because of it on Sunday.
Regarding to this issue, Heath said: "We can’t just keep playing the same group every four days until the end of the season; it’s impossible. This week will be good. Hopefully we will get a little bit of recuperation in the guys and get them a little bit healthier”.
