“I’m not going to fly almost six hours just to fight for a point,” said CLTFC’s Miguel Angel Ramirez. “If I go there, it’s because I want three points. If not, I stay here. I never wake up in the morning with the thought that on Saturday, maybe we will get a point. I don’t have that sex mentality. I always aim for three points, otherwise I can’t do my job.”
The match will be the final before the international break.
In their last MLS game, Charlotte beat the Vancouver Whitecaps 2-1 at home at Bank of America Stadium.
However, the first US Open Cup ended earlier this week with a 3-1 loss to the New York Red Bulls in the round of 16.
After Saturday’s game, the team will not play again until they return home for a rematch with the Red Bulls on June 11.
