Match Notes: Atlético Ottawa at Pacific FC Sept 19
Atlético Ottawa heads out West for the first time this season as it travels to face red-hot, league-leading Pacific FC at Starlight Stadium this Sunday, September 19 (KO 5PM ET, live on OneSoccer).
This will be the third meeting between the two sides this season, the first two resulting in Pacific FC wins in the bubble, and the fourth all-time. Atlético Ottawa had won the initial matchup between the two teams at the 2020 Island Games thanks to a goal by Viti Martinez.
This match will mark a return to Pacific FC for Zach Verhoven, the Surrey, BC native.
Ottawa will need a strong defensive performance to secure points, facing a Pacific FC that is not only sitting on top of the table but also leading the league in goal conversion percentage (19.02%) and goals per match (1.72).
OUT: Brandon John (injury, season); Drew Beckie (medical); Viti Martinez (injury, game to game); Rafa Nunez (injury, game to game); Antoine Coupland (injury, game to game); Ryan Telfer (suspension; red card).
