New York City FC midfielder Maxi Moralez is nursing a quad injury that will sideline him for Tuesday's Group A match against Orlando City SC and likely beyond, coach Ronny Deila said.

Moralez sustained the injury in NYCFC's 1-0 setback to the Philadelphia Union on Thursday morning.

Deila said the 33-year-old Argentine is expected to have an MRI on Monday and could be sidelined for a significant amount of time.

"As it looks now, he's out for the game and (could be) out for many weeks," Deila said on Sunday afternoon. "Of course that's a big setback for us."

Moralez has recorded 20 goals and 45 assists in 93 career matches for NFCFC (0-3-0 season, 0-1-0 tournament), who have sustained 1-0 setbacks in all three MLS matches this season.
