Kljestan Lineup

Breaking Down the XI | Kljestan Starts; Colman in the 18

Orlando City is set to take on NYCFC today at 3:30pm ET and the Lions will have a new look lineup for the challenge.

The major change this week will be the addition of Sacha Kljestan in the midfield. Acquired in the offseason, Kljestan had to serve a two game suspension carried over from last season to start the year. Cristian Higuita will also get his first start of the young season today, replacing Cam Lindley in the defensive midfield. 

On the bench, Josué Colmán will dress for the first time as a Lion. The attacking midfielder has been battling an injury through preseason. 

Starting XI: Bendik, El-Munir, Tarek, Spector (C), Allen, Higuita, Johnson, Yotun, Kljestan, Mueller, Meram. 

Bench: Laryea, Colmán, Lindley, Sutter, Sane, Willarreal, Edwards Jr.
