As Charlotte prepares to host the Lions at Bank of America Stadium, attention turns to the strategies outlined by the commanders on each side of the field.

Charlotte FC, led by Kerwin Vargas and Liel Abada, plans to exploit a crucial gap in Orlando's defense. The strategy is simple yet clever: isolate the opponent's defensive line. Vargas and Abada, known for their speed and dribbling skills, pose a constant threat when confronted one-on-one with less agile defenders.

The absence of Pedro Gallese, Orlando City's starting goalkeeper, leaves a void in the Lions' defense. Mason Stajduhar, his substitute, faces the tough task of maintaining goal security amid a determined Charlotte FC attack. The recent defeat against LAFC, where Stajduhar saw his goal breached three times, adds to the pressure.

On the defensive side, Charlotte FC is also not taking things lightly. Aware of the latent threats from Orlando City's attack, despite modest numbers, they are adopting a resilient defensive posture.

Charlotte FC prepares to write another exciting chapter in their MLS journey, while Orlando City seeks redemption and reaffirmation of their capabilities.
