Chapman Page Wins It For Miami; 2-1 Over Tampa

    Coming into the match the Tampa Bay Rowdies (8-0-2) were the heavy favorites vs Miami FC (4-2-5). Up until this point Miami had only recorded one win against the Rowdies; a hard fought 2-0 in their memorable 2017 U.S Open Cup run. Miami desperately needed a win to stay in contention for a playoff spot and achieved that with style and confidence against one of the toughest opponents in the league. 

The Miami FC v Tampa Bay Rowdies: Previewing The Match

A busy week for Miami FC kicks off Wednesday with an important home match against the Tampa Bay Rowdies. 

Coming off a somewhat disappointing 1-1 draw on the road against the New York Red Bulls II, Miami will look to try to steal three points against the first-place Rowdies. That’s a tall order against the defending Eastern Conference champions. The Rowdies enter Wednesday night’s match with more points (24) than any other club in the USL Championship.

The Miami FC have kept their ship afloat in the 2020 USL Championship season. Despite early struggles, the change at the helm has slowly paid off. Miami is coming off a loss in their last match against Charleston a week ago today. Luckily for Miami, their last visit to Tampa resulted in points and the Rowdies are also coming off a loss against the Battery. A Miami victory tonight would be an incredible boost for the club.

The Miami FC took a step in the right direction on Sunday night. In Paul Dalglish’s return to the technical area, the tactics from the two previous years returned to the pitch. Miami got on the board early but couldn’t hold off Tampa for the remaining 80+ minutes to earn their first USL victory. Travelling teams often target a draw on the road, and the result might just be the first step in getting Miami firing on all cylinders again thanks in part to Bryant Gammiero.

Tonight’s match has been three years in the making. Unfortunately for soccer fans in Florida, this game has to take place behind closed doors. The Miami FC and the Tampa Bay Rowdies have been some of the most competitive clubs in lower division soccer for quite some time. Last sharing a league in 2016 (NASL), the Rowdies made the jump to USL and never looked back. Miami opens their “home” season tonight hoping to secure their first USL win.
