The Rhinos are in Antigua trying to get to .500 and the Flash host Sky Blue FC in a bid to remaining unbeaten on the season.
The two teams are in different spots, but they both want 3 points badly.
The Flash want to keep the momentum going and end on a high note before their non-US internationals leave for the World Cup camps for their various nations.
The Rhinos want to try and right the ship after taking home only 1 point in two games last weekend.
