WHO, AGAIN? Rochester Rhinos. They of one of the ugliest kits and prettiest record in the league. They of the 1990s mascot and 2015 Mourinho-like approach to the game. They of only four goals conceded in 11 matches. Those Rampaging Rhinos. They’re good.
WHO TO WATCH FOR: As I said, Rochester doesn’t give up goals hardly ever. Louisville City is responsible for 25% of their goals against record this season. That said, the Rhinos don’t score a ton either, mostly because they don’t need to. 11 goals so far this season, four by Christian “Pesky” Volesky, and three by Steevan Dos Santos. Keep an eye on them.
KEYS TO THE GAME: Defense. Stay strong in the back like we have all season, and Louisville City can get a result. I know you were probably thinking “Score goals, dummy,” but one great way to piss a good defensive team off is not let them have the ball ever or score. Rochester CAN score, but if they don’t, they can’t win. A road draw wouldn’t be a bad result here for LCFC, but they’ve got to be careful with the ball and make the most of their chances, something they didn’t do in Montreal earlier this week.
