Last Meeting
It’s been two years since these two clubs came face-to-face. Chattanooga FC traveled down to Savannah in July of 2021 where CFC was quick to overpower the Clovers in a 4-0 win in the Independent Cup. A lot has changed since the teams last played; expect an exciting matchup in Chattanooga. 

Players to Watch

Andrew Barrowman (Savannah Clovers) - Barrowman leads the way for Clovers as the midfielder leads the team with 2 goals in 4 league games. He’ll look to be the spark to propel Savannah to their second win as they travel to Chattanooga to play table leaders, Chattanooga FC. 

Anatoline Prepelita (Chattanooga FC) - The 25-year-old Moldovan has been a brick wall for CFC in the back line. Prepelita has featured in every single competitive game for Chattanooga this year only allowing 2 goals in 6 games across all competitions and 4 clean sheets in league action. He has been a vital piece for Chattanooga’s defense this year, and he’ll be looking to continue his contribution to the clean sheet streak this weekend.
