Monday Takeaways: A Slight Setback

Oct 9, 2017

The Miami FC hosted the San Francisco Deltas for a second-consecutive match on Saturday night and fell to their West Coast rivals 3-0. Despite the setback, Miami remains in first place in both the Fall Season and Combined Standings.

Quick Takeaways from Week 30

  • The Miami FC's eight-match unbeaten streak was snapped in the 3-0 loss against the Deltas, but Miami has only lost two straight matches once this season.
  • Losses tend to ignite the Orange and Blue, as Miami has embarked on unbeaten streaks of 14 (won five and seven in a row) and eight (won five in a row) and a winning streak of two following a loss in 2017. Miami never rests on its laurels.
  • Jaime Chávez started and played 90 minutes in the match, something he's done in each of the past 12 matches. Chávez has racked up nine goals and four assists during that span, while Miami has accumulated an 8-2-3 record during that time period.
  • Ariel Martínez continues to excel in his role as a super-sub. Coming on for just 26 minutes in order to give Miami's offense a spark, Martínez created two scoring chances, took one shot and even won two tackles in a limited 30 touches. His dynamism is a huge asset off the bench for head coach Alessandro Nesta.

The Miami FC soon heads to Indianapolis to take on Indy Eleven, as they kick off a three-match road trip before returning home to host FC Edmonton in the final match of the regular season. The Orange and Blue remains home after the regular season finale to host the NASL Championship Semifinal.
