The Impact face New York City FC away from home on Saturday (1 pm ET | MLS LIVE on ESPN+ in US, TVAS in Canada), then have a midweek match at D.C. United next Tuesday (MLS LIVE on ESPN+ in US, TVAS in Canada). Garde added that Piatti's status is up in the air for next weekend's home opener against Columbus Crew SC.
En passant, Garde a confirmé que Nacho Piatti raterait les 2 prochains matchs et il n'est vraiment pas assuré d'être disponible le 13 avril. #IMFC— Nicolas A Martineau (@nikmartineauTVA) April 4, 2019
Harry Novillo will start on the left wing for the Impact on Saturday against NYCFC, the attackers first start in MLS. He previously came on as a sub Orlando City SC on March 16 but was out of the squad last week after losing his passport.
Spanning both the regular season and the playoffs, the 34-year-old has 71 goals and 37 assists throughout his MLS career, having joined the Impact in 2014. The 2019 season will be his last in MLS.
