The Story:

Orlando City enters Saturday's match following a bye week, with the team's most recent match a 1-1 draw with the New York Red Bulls on March 30.

Since Head Coach Oscar Pareja took over in Orlando, the Lions have a 6-3-1 record after a two-week break, including going 4-1-0 last season.

With a start against D.C United and by playing more than 59 minutes, Captain Robin Jansson can become the first Orlando City player to eclipse 15,000 minutes played across all competitions. It would also mark his 170th appearance with the Lions.

Facundo Torres is one goal away from tying Nani (31) for second all-time in Orlando City history. Duncan McGuire is also a goal away from tying Daryl Dike and Benji Michel for eighth all-time with 19 goals.

Quote of the Week:

"I've seen a [D.C. United] team that's very organized. [Head Coach Troy Lesesne] has modeled the defense, I recognize in prior matches with him and his systems. But the nature of his players, D.C.'s players are dynamic, organized, and very bold defensively. I've seen the games they've played this season and I notice they are a team that is organized, and we have to be organized."

-Head Coach Oscar Pareja
