After rallying for a draw last week, the Richmond Kickers are back in action today against the Dayton Dutch Lions, the affiliate club for the Columbus Crew. The Dutch Lions have a 0-8-1 record all-time against the Kickers, so hopefully they can keep that record going this evening.
Time: 7:00 PM EDT
Venue: Beavercreek High School, Beavercreek, Ohio
Streaming: As for all USL PRO games this season, this game will be streamed on YouTube.
Projected Richmond Kickers Starting XI: Joe Willis will return to the starting lineup for the Kickers, with Alex Lee, Conor Shanosky, William Yomby, and Sascha Goerres in front of him. Mike Callahan and Samuel Asante will be in defensive midfield, with Christiano Francois, George Davis IV, and Luke Vercollone in front of them. Matthew Delicate will start as the loan striker.
Prediction: With the Kickers all-time record against the Dutch Lions, a win should be in the cards. However, the Dutch Lions have improved great lengths over the past two years, so nothing will be easy. I will stick with a 2-1 win for the Kickers to get back on the winning track.
