Recent Form

Albion San Diego ended their 2022 season as finalists for the league championship. They started their 2023 season off with a 0-2 defeat in the second round of the U.S. Open Cup. A disappointing start for them but they’ll look to bounce back as they host Chattanooga FC. This will be the first league match of 2023 for San Diego and the second league match for Chattanooga FC.

CFC enters this matchup with all engines firing. Laying waste to both Gold Star FC and Des Moines Menace, San Diego will be asking themselves how they can stop this high-powered offense. 

Last Meeting

Chattanooga FC and Albion San Diego met twice in September of the 2022 season, a home and away game. Both matches ended in close 2-1 victories for CFC. They’ll look to extend their run this Sunday in San Diego.
