Jacksonville Armada FC lost to Rayo OKC, 3-2, on Sept. 11, but gets a chance to make amends on Saturday. Jacksonville (2W-5D-7L, 11 points Fall; 3-9-12, 18 Combined) has yet to take points from Rayo OKC, losing by 1-0 in the Spring Season, but Jacksonville’s attack has awoken lately, scoring five goals in the past two contests – most recently a 3-3 draw with Puerto Rico FC. Cameroonian forward Charles Eloundou has scored in back-to-back games and also added an assist in the draw with Puerto Rico. The Armada FC wrapped up a three-game road swing last weekend and carries a three-game home unbeaten streak into the matchup with Rayo OKC.

The visitors enter with a three-game unbeaten run overall after picking up successive draws in Week 12 – a 0-0 draw at FC Edmonton and a 1-1 draw at home to the Fort Lauderdale Strikers. Defender Sebastien Ibeagha has been a standout performer in recent weeks, scoring in the win against Jacksonville and putting in strong shifts to help Rayo OKC (4-6-5, 18 Fall; 7-9-9, 30 Combined) pick up points in the last three contests. The club’s leading goalscorer Michel returned to the lineup and the scoresheet in the draw with Fort Lauderdale, converting from the penalty spot, and was the main creator throughout his 90 minutes on the field.
