Starting Lineups

Jim Curtin rotating the squad again, inserts Jack McGlynn, Paxten Aaronson and Julian Carranza into the starting lineup, replacing Alejandro Bedoya, Mikael Uhre and Cory Burke from the starters on Wednesday. The graphic shows a 4-2-3-1 formation, an old Union standby.

Henry Kessler is sure to hear it from the crowd. It’s strange not seeing Andrew Farrell in the lineup, but the veteran defender is serving a red card suspension.
