Yes, neither side has the advantage here, as the four official head-to-heads resulted in two draws, a Charlotte win, and one triumph for the Crew, but we still believe Nancy’s team has the quality to crush Charlotte on the 24th of March.

Charlotte team news and form: Inconsistent Charlotte unlikely to win

Since the start of the campaign, Charlotte recorded one win, one draw, and two losses. That’s definitely not the performance that wins you the Major League Soccer title, but it’s still very early in the season. There’s enough time for the team to show something else.

Predicted lineup: Kahlina (GK), Uronen, Privett, Malanda, Byrne, Arfield, Westwood, Diani, Tavares, Agyemand & Vargas

Hernandez among the best in Major League Soccer

Cucho Hernandez scored three goals and supplied a teammate with an assist in the 2024 MLS campaign. We are sure he’s capable of more, and we can’t wait to see him prove that.
