Thierry Henry looks like going with a 4-4-2 as he tries to prize a result from his team over Inter-Miami this evening.

Bojan is restored to a two-man attack which also sees Urruti begin the game in place of Mason Toye, lacking match-fitness.

Sejdic, Wanyama and Piette are retained in midfield and are joined wide-left by top-scorer Quioto. Anthony Jackson-Hamel returns to the bench after several weeks out injured.

James Pantemis plays behind a makeshift back-four in Brault-Guillard, Camacho, Waterman and Corrales as the Impact attempt to win its inaugural match over an expansion side for only the second time in MLS.

Inter-Miami includes only one Higuain, Gonzalo up front, and World Cup winner Blaise Matuidi on the left side of midfield.

In goal Jon McCarthy continues to deputize for Robles, while Matias Pellegrini drops to the bench. Ben Sweat is expected to play a more advanced role on the left side, and should be backed up by the experienced Brek Shea who returns to the starting line-up.
