After taking down the visitors from just up I-65 in a 1-0 victory on Saturday night, Louisville City will host Indy Eleven once again for the opening round of the USL Cup Playoffs at Slugger Field on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. ET. Louisville’s win on Saturday gave the club their sixth consecutive win to close out the regular season.
Last Saturday Against Indy Eleven
A Cameron Lancaster penalty kick was the only goal Louisville needed to claim three points at the weekend. Greg Ranjitsingh once again notched a clean sheet for City to finish out the regular season. The win brought the 2018 season series to a 1-1-1 record.
Indy finished the USL regular season in seventh place. Goalkeeper Owain Fon Williams brought his season total saves to 91 after Saturday’s performance, placing him fourth in the USL. On the other end, Jack McInerney leads Indy’s scoring efforts with 10 goals on the season.
Clean Sheets to Open the Playoffs
In each of the club’s first three seasons, Louisville City FC has won their opening round playoff matches with a clean sheet (knocks on wood). In 2015, it was a 2-0 victory over Charleston, a 2-0 victory over Richmond in 2016, and a 4-0 victory over Bethlehem in 2017.
