A pair of NASL expansion clubs looking to get back on the winning track as Indy Eleven host Ottawa Fury FC at IUPUI’s Michael A. Carroll Stadium.  Indy is searching for its first league victory at home, while Ottawa is aiming to end its seven-game winless streak.  Indy, who has not won in its last four game, is coming off 5-1 road loss at the hands of league-leader Minnesota United FC last week, while Fury held visiting San Antonio Scorpions to a 1-1 draw.  The last and only meeting between the two teams came this past spring when two goals by midfielder Tony Donatelli and one each from defender Omar Jarun and forward Oliver gave the Fury a 4-2 victory at Michael A. Carroll Stadium on May 17.

Coaches quotes:

“The only thing we want to take away from the Minnesota loss is how we recover from it, how quickly everyone, players and coaches, can put it behind us and prepare positively for Ottawa. I think our guys will look forward to getting back in front of the home fans and use that energy to come firing out of the gates and give Ottawa some payback for grabbing three points here back in May.” – Indy Eleven coach Juergen Sommer

“This trip will be huge for our club. We know it means a lot for both teams and we are preparing well to succeed. It will be a game that will require a lot of concentration from our part. We hope we are going to continue growing as a team and get the result we want.” – Fury FC coach Marc Dos Santos
