In another first-time matchup for the Rising, Phoenix looks to extend their no-loss streak to six games straight and move one spot closer to the top of the Western Group rankings. They are currently nine points behind the first place team and six points away from being knocked out of the playoffs.

Indy Eleven currently holds a record of 11-8-10 and stand at No. 6 in the Eastern Group of the USL Championship. Similar to the Rising, the franchise has been concluding their season with a string of strong performances. They were on a six game no-loss streak until their 2-3 loss to New Mexico United last Friday.

Sebastián Guenzatti, the captain of Indy, has pulled together a month of impressive matches recording four goals in his last five games. He has 10 goals on the season and is currently tied in 15th for the most goals on the season.

Danny Trejo has been making headlines for his impressive year thus far, especially in the last month and a half. He has 17 goals on the season and is tied in first for the Golden Boot award.

On top of an impressive performance from Trejo, the Rising are coming off of a 5-0 blowout win over Detroit City FC last Saturday.

With the spirits high and the teams confidence at an all-time level, they have curated the perfect concoction going into Wednesday’s matchup.
