[NASL: Fall Week 5] The San Antonio Scorpions, who are coming off their first defeat of the fall campaign, will look to stay on top in the NASL standings when they host Indy Eleven at Toyota Park on Saturday.

Indy's only two wins on the road in its inaugural NASL season have come on the road in the fall campaign. It will be playing its second game in four days after holding the Fort Lauderdale Strikers to a scoreless draw at home on Wednesday.
 
"We are turning things around on the defensive side of the ball," said Indy Eleven coach Juergen Sommer. "And that goes for our players all over the field, not just the backline."
 
Spring champion Minnesota United FC, which sits only two points behind the Scorpions and is the only remaining unbeaten team in the NASL fall season, aims to extend its current eight-game unbeaten streak when it welcomes FC Edmonton at NSC Stadium.
 
"Edmonton has always been a physical, strong, solid team," said United coach Manny Lagos.  "I think defensively they've been one of the best teams in the league over the last couple of years."
