Midfielder Johan Venegas returned from sciatic pain that kept him out of two matches in time for Saturday's clash with the Vancouver Whitecaps FC at TCF Bank Stadium. Here is how Minnesota United will line up:

Bobby Shuttleworth

Kevin Venegas, Brent Kallman, Francisco Calvo, Jerome Thiesson

Sam Cronin, Ibson

Johan Venegas, Kevin Molino, Miguel Ibarra

Christian Ramirez

Bench: Patrick McLain, Jermaine Taylor, Justin Davis, Collen Warner, Rasmus Schuller, Collin Martin, Bashkim Kadrii

Besides Johan Venegas coming in for rookie forward Abu Danladi, who is serving a red card suspension, the starting 11 and bench are unchanged from Wednesday's 3-2 win against the Portland Timbers.

Prior to the match, defender Vadim Demidov and midfielder Ish Jome trained a bit on the TCF Bank Stadium pitch. Both are out with a knee and ankle injury, respectively.

Here is how Vancouver will start against the Loons:
