ORLANDO, Fla. - Orlando City SC (3-5-3, 12 points) closes out its two-game road trip on Wednesday against the Seattle Sounders (6-1-4, 22 points). Kickoff is set for 10:30 p.m. ET at CenturyLink Field.

"We have great confidence in our group and the depth we have to go and get a result in Seattle," Orlando City Head Coach James O'Connor said. "Similar to Atlanta, the atmosphere should be exciting and these are the types of matches our guys are excited to be in."

The Lions enter Wednesday's contest off a 1-0 loss in Atlanta on Sunday. Gonzalo 'Pity' Martinez scored the eventual game-winner for the Five Stripes in the 14th minute.

After recording three saves in Sunday's match, Brian Rowe now sits atop Major League Soccer with 40 saves in 2019.

Seattle comes into the week fresh off a 1-0 victory over the Houston Dynamo this past Saturday. Cristian Roldan scored the lone goal for the Sounders on the night in the fifth minute, his second goal in as many games.

Jordan Morris leads the Sounders with four goals this season, while Nicolás Loderio leads the side with six assists. Goalkeeper Stefan Frei sits just behind Rowe in saves this season with 39.

Following Wednesday's contest, the Lions return to Orlando for their third of three matches in an eight-day span when they face 2019 MLS expansion side FC Cincinnati on Sunday at Orlando City Stadium.
