After a month away, the first-place Miami FC returns home to Riccardo Silva Stadium at FIU on Sunday for a 6 p.m. game against in-state rivals, the Jacksonville Armada.
Miami has been atop the NASL standings for 22 weeks and holds a commanding 16-point edge over second-place San Francisco with seven games to play in the regular season. Miami has already clinched a spot in the league semifinals, and will host that game on Nov. 5. Tickets go on sale Sunday at 10 a.m. at 844-MIAMIFC and at miamifc.com/tickets
If Miami were to win the semifinal, it would likely host the NASL Championship game on Nov. 12.
Coach Alessandro Nesta and his team are riding a seven-match unbeaten streak. They are 4-0 against the Armada in 2017 and won their last home meeting against them 4-0. Miami FC leads the league in offense with 50 goals scored and in defense with just 21 goals allowed.
Never miss a local story.
