Miami FC’s spring and early summer success came to a screeching halt with the start of the Fall season.
After riding a 14-game unbeaten streak, winning the NASL Spring Championship, and knocking off two Major League Soccer teams in the U.S. Open Cup, the Miami FC has lost three games in a row heading into Saturday’s home match against Indy Eleven at FIU Riccardo Silva Stadium.
Miami lost 3-1 to the New York Cosmos, 1-0 to the USL’s FC Cincinnati in the Open Cup quarterfinals, and last weekend dropped a 3-2 home game to North Carolina.
Coach Alessandro Nesta will try to get his team back on track Saturday against a team it has never lost to at home. Miami is 11-4-3 overall this season and has a six-point lead over San Francisco in the league standings despite losing the first two games of the Fall portion of the season.
Never miss a local story.
Miami FC’s Vincenzo Rennella leads the league with 10 goals and five assists, and teammate Pinho is second with nine goals.
Indy is 1-1 the past two games, and 5-5-8 overall.
