Monday Takeaways: No More Rest for the Weary

Apr 17, 2017

The Miami FC is coming off an early-season bye week and returns to Riccardo Silva Stadium on Saturday, April 22, to host North Carolina FC. The night will feature a Venezuelan theme with cuisine and music to accompany the vibrant atmosphere. Plus, fans will receive Miami FC Thunder Sticks, courtesy of Matchup Promotions, to make noise for their Orange and Blue.

Quick Takeaways from week four:

  • With all teams having played three matches, the Miami FC sits in third place with four points. They trail the San Francisco Deltas by one point and in-state rivals Jacksonville Armada by just three. A win this week could see a move to second place in the table and possibly a tie for first.
  • The bye week came at the right time for the Miami FC as injuries kept the squad from being full strength. This week should see the return of many key players, especially defenders, that will give Head Coach Alessandro Nesta even more choices for the best possible Xl.
  • North Carolina FC and the Miami FC have a strong rivalry brewing, as only one win and one goal separate the two sides in the overall series. The Orange and Blue took the only win of the series at Riccardo Silva Stadium last year with a 1-0 victory.
  • Even after a week off, the Orange and Blue continues to be the best passing team in the NASL. Miami FC players still occupy five of the top 10 spots for total passes in the NASL and one spot on the chances created list.
