Match #29 Preview: SAFC hosts Tampa Bay Rowdies for first time in club history


San Antonio FC (15-4-10) opens up a three-game homestand when they welcome the Tampa Bay Rowdies (13-7-10) to Toyota Field for the first time in club history.

Last time out: SAFC earned a 2-0 win over the Tulsa Roughnecks to close out the road portion of their 2017 regular season schedule. Omar Gordon and Billy Forbes each had goals in the win.

Eyes on second: San Antonio currently has their own destiny in their hands as they head into the final three matches of the season. If SAFC finishes 2-0-1, they will lock up the number two seed in the Western Conference playoff race.

Home cooking: SAFC’s magic number to clinch a home playoff match is four. A win tonight and a draw by Phoenix Rising FC would guarantee a top four finish.

Against Tampa Bay: Tonight is the first meeting between San Antonio FC and the Tampa Bay Rowdies.

San Antonio FC and Tampa Bay will kick things off at 7 p.m. from Toyota Field.

Match predictions:

Stephen Anderson: SAFC 2-1 TBR

Samantha Garcia: SAFC 2-2 TBR
