The Story:

Orlando City enters Saturday's game looking to extend its unbeaten streak against Charlotte, taking a pair of 2-1 victories from the Crown a year ago.

The Lions transition back into MLS regular-season play after facing off against Tigres UANL at Exploria Stadium for the second leg of the Round of 16 of the Scotiabank Concacaf Champions League on Wednesday night.

City has yet to concede in league play in front of its home crowd, taking a 1-0 shutout victory in its season opener over the New York Red Bulls on Feb. 25, before battling to a scoreless stalemate against FC Cincinnati a week later.

Quote of the Week:

"We've played Charlotte before, so we know how we'd like to play against them. We've been able to take good results so far this year, so that's first and foremost in our minds to continue that. We'll continue preparing and then look to take the three points. We're expecting a great game."

- Midfielder César Araújo
