PREVIEW: PUERTO RICO FC AT FC EDMONTON

Apr 20, 2017

San Juan, Puerto Rico-After facing last year’s champion and runner up in three consecutive weeks, Puerto Rico FC will now travel to face FC Edmonton on Saturday, April 22nd at 9:00pm at Clarke Stadium.

PRFC has yet to be defeated in the 2017 season in large part because of its powerful offense, which is in second place in shots and goals scored. Héctor “Pito” Ramos has shined early in the season, scoring two goals and providing an assist. He also leads the NASL in chances created with 10. Jairo Puerto has also been an important figure, pressuring the sidelines and opening up space for the strikers or for himself to cut inside and shoot.

The Eddies had a great 2016 season, qualifying for the NASL playoffs, but 2017 has been a different story. Edmonton has been unable to earn a point in their first three matches, allowing five goals while scoring one. The lone goal came in a 3-1 defeat at North Carolina FC.

Join us at our Watch Party at The Place in Ashford Avenue at Condado starting at 8:30pm where we will enjoy #FCEvPRFC on WAPA 2 Sports. There will be Happy Hours, giveaways and PRFC players. PRFC returns home to host North Carolina FC on Saturday, April 29th at Juan Ramón Loubriel Stadium. Tickets are on sale at puertoricofc.com/tickets and prticket.com.
