Two sides who are looking to book their spot in the semi-finals of this year’s US Open Cup, Orlando will host New York City in the early hours of Thursday.
Starting with the hosts, after enduring a sluggish run of form of late, Orlando City have freefallen out of the play-off positions. In their 19 MLS matches this season, they have recorded six wins, four draws and nine defeats, scoring 27 and conceding 27 in return. With a points tally of 22, they now sit one-point adrift of reclaiming a play-off spot in the Eastern Conference. As for their recent run of results, the Purples have won just one of their last five matches across all competitions within 90 minutes and they have also won just one of their last four matches against MLS opposition.
As for the visitors, while New York City may have seen their winning run come to an end last week they’re still enjoying a very eye-catching resurge. In their 17 MLS matches this year, they have recorded seven wins, eight draws and just two defeats, scoring 30 and conceding 20 in return. Now holding a seven-point buffer in the play-off positions, NYCFC also hold the best defensive record in the Eastern Conference. As for their recent run of results, have won five of their last six matches across all competitions and have scored two or more goals in each of those victories.
