The Riverhounds’ last match against Louisville came during the 2019 Eastern Conference semifinals, where the Hounds fell short in extra time, losing 2-1. The Hounds started this game on top in the 11th minute, when Thomas Vancaeyezeele headed in a corner kick from teammate Kenardo Forbes. They then continued to hold the lead until the second half of the game when Louisville scored its first goal. Louisville scored again in the 118th minute (extra time) to defeat the Hounds.
Despite dropping their last meeting, the Hounds hold an all-time record of 3-1-1 in road games against Louisville. This away record includes a two-game winning streak.
As Pittsburgh has yet to play this season, Louisville got in one match before the season had been suspended in March. The foe defeated North Carolina FC, 1-0, on the road.
