Charlotte Independence vs Toronto FC II: How to Watch, Live Stream and More

The Independence play their final home match of the year tonight in Charlotte.

Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY Sports

The Charlotte Independence are down to their final three games in their inaugural season and play Toronto FC II tonight at Ramblewood.  For Charlotte it is their last regular season home game and it comes at a critical time.  This is a game that they need all three points from and would give them a bit of breathing from going into their final two road games.

What to Watch For

1)  Reversing the Disappointment: I guess you could look at the draw on Saturday night in Charlotte as another point in a long season.  And you would be correct.  But when you are playing a team that has won only three times in a season and you draw at home...it is a massive disappointment.  What is critical now for Charlotte is how you reverse that disappointment.  They take on Toronto FC II team and will need all three points.  Nothing else will do.

2)  Offense is Missing: Charlotte is having a bit of trouble scoring goals this season (Eighth best in the East) but are playing the second most porous defense in the east.  The Independence have only scored more than two goals this year twice this year and if ever that duck was going to break, tonight should be the night.
