Charlotte FC are confirmed to have a significantly reduced roster for tonight’s match against CF Montreal. At least ten players did not travel due to health and safety protocols. Charlotte FC tried to petition the league to postpone the match but they were unsuccessful.
The true test tonight will be how Lattanzio can find a result in Montreal with so many players missing. Charlotte FC does have a few players on loan at Charlotte Independence who they may call up to provide some depth for the match. While this helps put names on the roster sheet, there is no other way to spin this than to say that this news is a significant blow to Charlotte FC’s chances in tonight’s match. If Lattanzio can lead the Black and Blues to a result tonight it would be a remarkable feat.
