The Story:

Orlando City enters the weekend on a three-match unbeaten run, looking to extend the streak to four after picking up two wins and a draw in the Club's last three matches.

The Lions will take on the Columbus Crew for the first time since the Crew won the 2023 MLS Cup.

The Lions' defense continued to stand strong over the weekend, picking up their second clean sheet in a week with the 1-0 win after shutting out Inter Miami CF in a scoreless draw at the midweek.

Quote of the Week:

"Like any other team, we're responsible with our preparations, understanding the challenges this team brings us. Columbus has a very bold system and way to play, so we've been analyzing how we can affect them and how we can control them. As I say, just trying to be very confident in our ways and our players and trying to get these results at home in front of our fans. That's what we want."

- Head Coach Oscar Pareja
