Ottawa Fury FC and Minnesota United meet in a rematch of one of The Championship Semifinals from last year. Both teams are picking up momentum as the 2016 Spring Season progresses.

Fury FC (1W-1D-3L, 4 points) notched its first win with a 2-0 result at TD Place on Saturday, and now has three more home matches in a row. Ottawa turned in a complete performance last week, shutting down Miami's attack and looking dangerous going forward. Defender Fernando Timbó and forward Dennis Chin were each on the scoresheet in the comfortable win. In last year's semifinal, Ottawa recorded a 2-1 extra-time win over Minnesota behind a pair of Tom Heinemann goals.

Minnesota (3-0-1, 9) is coming off its bye week, but previously won three matches in a row after an opening weekend loss in Carolina. Forward Christian Ramirez has led the way with three goals so far, including a dramatic game-winner in stoppage time for the 10-man Loons against the New York Cosmos.
