6 p.m. at New York Red Bulls • FSN Plus, 1500-AM
After New York stop, end of long road will be reached
Preview: Minnesota United plays its fifth and final road game to start the season after it won the first two at Vancouver and San Jose, then lost at L.A. Galaxy and New England. The big questions: Will United star Darwin Quintero play? If not, how will coach Adrian Heath adjust the lineup without him? The team on Friday listed him as questionable because of a groin injury suffered during Wednesday’s first training session at new Allianz Field. Midfielders Rasmus Schuller is listed as questionable, too, because of a bad thigh bruise that kept him out of last week’s loss at New England. If Quintero doesn’t play, Heath could plug another midfielder into his spot. Another option is to play Abu Danaldi up top alongside Angelo Rodriguez, who moved into the starting lineup last week for the first time this season. … The Red Bulls are the only MLS team United has not scored against. The Supporters’ Shield winner last season with 71 points, they’ve started 1-2-1 this season and have not scored the past two games, losing at home to Orlando and at Chicago.
Did you know: United veteran defender Francisco Calvo last week set the club record for most minutes played in MLS. He has played 5,129 minutes, surpassing Bobby Shuttleworth’s 5,088 minutes.
Injuries: Quintero, Schuller, MF Kevin Molino (knee) all are listed as questionable and D Chase Gasper (hamstring) is out. Red Bulls MF Florian Valot (torn ACL) and D Kemar Lawrence are out.
