The US Open Cup Fourth Round continues tonight as the Charlotte Independence look to make it a clean sweep for the #OneClub as they head to Boston to play New England Revolution. For the Independence, this is a very busy period after coming off a win last Saturday and they have another home match against Charleston Battery on Saturday.
The Goal for Charlotte: win and advance
What to Watch For:
1) Go For It (or not?): The Independence have a big question for themselves....do you go for the victory or do you rest people and concentrate on USL? I can see the Revs resting a few players, but not many as they do not play again until Sunday. For the Independence, you start a full strength squad and you go for it.
2) Some Momentum: Charlotte is riding a mini-wave of momentum going into this one and they really are playing with house money. No one is expecting them to win, and they are playing some good football. Charlotte has a chance for a shock result
3) Burgundy Assistance: Colorado Rapids loanees Carlos Alvarez, Ben Newnam and Caleb Calvert could all feature for Charlotte tonight whereas John Berner is out injured. Alvarez in particular is playing well for Charlotte and looks to be a fixture in the Starting XI
How To Watch:
Match Date/Time: Wednesday, June 17 at 5:30 PM MDT
Venue: Soliders Field--Harvard University
