Charlotte Independence at Rochester Rhinos: How to Watch, Live Stream and More

The Independence take on the defending champs tonight.

Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

The Charlotte Independence hit the road for the second consecutive match as they head north to play the defending USL Champions Rochester Rhinos in a massive match for both clubs.  The Independence are 5-2-1 (16 points, 2.0 PPG) while the Rhinos are playing very well and come in with a 4-1-1 record (13 points, 2.16 PPG).  This one should be a fun to watch as both clubs look to be going for it

The Goal for Charlotte:  grab a road result

What to Watch For

1)  The Streak: after a slow start to the season, Charlotte has rattled off an undefeated streak of 5 matches including picking up four points on the road.  This is a great start for Charlotte and it comes with good goal scoring and timely defending.

2)  Defense in Rochester: the challenge for Charlotte tonight will be scoring goals.  Rochester boasts the second stingiest defense in USL and give up less than a goal a game.  This will be a great test for the Charlotte attack to see if they can break down Rochester and grab a result.

3)  Colorado Rapids on Loan: Here are the stats for the Rapids players who are or have been on loan with Charlotte:
