The Charleston Battery take on The Miami FC on Saturday, May 21st, at Patriots Point to close out their three-game homestand. Kickoff for the match is scheduled for 7 pm.

Charleston and Miami have become familiar adversaries the past two seasons since the South Florida side joined the USL Championship in 2020. The Black and Yellow are 3-1-0 against Miami at Patriots Point in that time.

Miami arrive in the Lowcountry following a 1-1 draw on Wednesday against Detroit City FC at FIU Stadium. Detroit took a 1-0 lead in the first half via an Antoine Hoppenot goal off a direct counterattack. The hosts, however, rallied late with a dramatic equalizer in the final minute of stoppage time. Adonijah Reid did the honors in the 95th minute when he received a pass from Romeo Parkes inside the box and then slotted the ball into the back of the net to secure a point at home.

The Battery will look for a positive conclusion to the homestand after falling 0-2 to New Mexico United last match. The visitors scored early in both halves which was enough to secure the three points. Charleston, however, were not without opportunities. The Battery held the majority of possession during the match (52.2% to 47.8%) and had more of passes in the final third (138 to 98) than New Mexico. Charleston will aim to carry their offensive creation with them against Miami while seeking to convert those chances.

Saturday will also feature a pair of head coaches in debut seasons with their clubs in Charleston’s Conor Casey and Miami’s Anthony Pulis, both hired ahead of the 2022 season.

The all-time series between the Battery and Miami is even at a 3-3-2 head-to-head record.

As of Thursday, multiple sections in the stadium have already sold out.
