Barnes starts

Orlando City Starting XI | Barnes and MPG Start; Kaka on the Bench

Minimal, but impactful changes by Jason Kreis this week as his team is set to take on the Colorado Rapids. 

A reshuffle up top, as Giles Barnes will pair up with Cyle Larin, dropped Carlos Rivas to the bench. I don't think this is due to Rivas' play, but possibly a move by Kreis to start to preserve some of his players' legs ahead of what will be a hectic month of May. That's all conjecture, but either way I'd expect Rivas to come in and make in impact off the bench in this one.

Matias Perez Garcia returns to the #10 spot. He came in as a substitute in the 93rd minute last week after serving a one game suspension the week prior.  

Kakà will dress for the first time after suffering an injury just minutes into Orlando City's opening match. Jose Aja will join him on the bench after nursing a hamstring injury.
