Our opponent

FC Columbus has shown better performances in their three home matches compared to their away games. They secured a victory against Erie Commodores FC on May 28th but suffered defeats against league leaders Steel City FC and Michigan Rangers FC. FC Columbus will miss Ayoub Ouhammou due to suspension for a red card after receiving a second yellow on Friday evening.
