FC Cincinnati Match Notes/Preview for Crew SC game

August 28, 2020

 

The #HellisReal Derby returns to Nippert Stadium on Saturday night when the Orange and Blue host Columbus Crew SC in their second meeting of 2020. Here are the main storylines approaching kickoff:

The #HellisReal Derby arrives days after MLS and other professional sports leagues (the NBA, WNBA, MLB, NHL and Western & Southern Open) around the country paused action to address the severity of systemic racism and brutality.

The movement was player-driven, and Joseph-Claude Gyau said it was a “spur of the moment” decision for games to be postponed.

Had Cincinnati played Wednesday night, Gyau said the players would’ve opted not to play. (They played one night earlier at Chicago Fire FC before the Milwaukee Bucks protested an NBA playoff game the following afternoon.)

Saturday’s matchup is the club’s first game since the postponements, and Gyau said the club is approaching the derby like a normal match.

“I’m sure everybody is aware of what’s going on,” he said. “Just because we do play this game, it doesn’t mean we’re sweeping anything under the rug. We’re still going to take the game seriously if it’s played, when it’s played.

“This is still fresh in my head, but when it’s time to get out onto that field, I have to get the job done.”

Head coach Jaap Stam called Tuesday night’s loss to Chicago Fire FC “eye opening” for his club. Since the last meeting with Columbus, the Orange and Blue had comfortably played with a back five with respectable success. In fact, there weren’t any setbacks until the club allowed two goals in the opening 10 minutes against the Fire.

Afterward, Frankie Amaya said the start of the game resembled a 2019 FCC performance, where the club conceded early and never responded.

The loss in Chicago is a reminder that Cincinnati is at the beginning of a long-term build. But was the game a hiccup or a more glaring concern?

“There was a lot of disappointment after the last game against Chicago, of course, because of the result and also how we played in terms of what we did wrong before we did a lot of things right,” Stam said. “We know we need to be focused and we need to be switched on from the start. After yesterday, you let things go and we prepare for the next game against Columbus, which is going to be very interesting.”

FC Cincinnati will be seeking for revenge in the second Hell is Real showdown of the year, while Columbus Crew SC are looking to rebound from their first regular-season defeat when the sides square off at Nippert Stadium Saturday night.

Both teams suffered midweek defeats on the road with FC Cincinnati falling to Chicago Fire FC in their return to Soldier Field, while Crew SC dropped a 1-0 decision to NYCFC at Red Bull Arena.

Columbus won the only other Hell is Real regular season game played at Nippert Stadium, 3-1, last August with Gyasi Zardes striking for a brace. Crew SC thrashed FC Cincy 4-0 in Orlando last month with Zardes again scoring twice. It was Jaap Stam’s first match in charge of FC Cincinnati.

FC Cincinnati

FC Cincinnati fell into a 2-0 hole inside of 10 minutes before ultimately falling to the Fire, 3-0, at Soldier Field. It was a departure from the much-improved defensive form the side had shown under Stam when they conceded just once in their previous four games and came into this match after a 0-0 draw against D.C. United.

“We’ve been doing very well in the past. Even though you’re losing three-nil when you come back in the second half on the pitch, the players still are trying to get close or to score that first goal and that’s a very positive thing as well,” Stam said. “But this is football. It happens at times. That makes football at times nice as well, and I don’t mean losing, but it is unpredictable at times. So, we need to keep working hard. This was for us a good eye opener for us as well.”“

Columbus Crew SC

For the first time this season, Columbus suffered a regular season defeat, dropping a 1-0 result against NYCFC Monday night. Caleb Porter rotated his squad, resting five starters. Also the way the Crew lost was confounding, done in by a stunning defensive gaffe by Aboubacar Keita. It was only the second goal conceded this regular season.

“We have to learn from it, obviously,” Porter said. “We have not much time to turn around and go again, but it’s still a process and we’ve been on a good run obviously; six games with no losses, this is our first loss. We’ll use it to get better and we have to respond now in this next game versus our rival in a big match.”
