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:
Kevin Venegas, Brent Kallman, Francisco Calvo, Jerome Thiesson
Sam Cronin, Ibson
Johan Venegas, Kevin Molino, Miguel Ibarra
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.
