In one of the many quirks of the USL PRO schedule, the Richmond Kickers played the Charleston Battery this past Saturday and now play them against tonight; the former game was in RVA, whereas this game is down in South Carolina. While Richmond is coming off a 4-0 drubbing of the Battery, who are the worst team in USL PRO right now, it is always hard to beat your rival that badly twice in a row. Let us see how this game goes.
Kickoff time: 7:30 PM EDT
Venue: Blackbaud Stadium, Charleston, SC
Streaming: As always, you can find USL PRO games available on YouTube for your streaming pleasure.
Richmond Kickers starting XI: Since this is going up late, I have the actual lineup here in front of me; there is only one D.C. United player available. The lineup is Joe Willis, Alex Lee, Henry Kalungi, William Yomby, Sascha Goerres, Luke Vercollone, Samuel Asante, Jason Yeisley, George Davis IV, Shay Spitz, Matthew Delicate.
Prediction: Even though they just played, I don't really see how the Battery can beat the Kickers right now. 2-1 to the visitors.
What are you drinking? To support the Kickers while afar, I will be drinking something from Hardywood Park Craft Brewery; we will just have to find what is being served.
As always, this is your place for pre-game, in-game, and post-game action. Get reddy!
