Orlando City face Toronto FC at the Orlando City Stadium on Saturday afternoon in MLS action.
Toronto surrendered an early lead from a goal by Jonathan Osorio to lose 2-1 at home to the Portland Timbers. It was just their second loss of the season to date (albeit a second defeat in three games) and their first on home turf, although key striker Jozy Altidore was ruled out of the game with injury (hamstring).
For their part, Orlando City come into the game on the back of a 1-1 draw on the road at New York City FC last week, in a game in which Nani gave them an early lead by getting his name on the scoresheet for the fourth game in succession for what was his fifth goal of the season.
Orlando had only three shots in the entire game and NYCFC goalkeeper Sean Johnson was not credited with a single save. By contrast, Orlando goalkeeper Brian Rowe made four saves in a game in which NYCFC totalled 15 shots (five on target) and controlled possession for 65.6% of the match.
