Where: Orlando City Stadium
Watch: WRDQ TV27
The Buzz: Orlando City (6-4-1, 19 points) looks to end a two-match losing streak with the Chicago Fire (3-6-2, 11 points), another club riding its own two-match losing streak. … The Lions will be without the services of midfielder Yoshi Yotún and centerback Amro Tarek, who are both gone for international duty. … Uri Rosell started in place of Yotun against Toronto, while Chris Schuler could get his second start of the season with centerback Jonathan Spector still out (concussion). … Dom Dwyer remains questionable. … The Fire have lost three of their last four games. … Fire GM Nelson Rodriguez recently held a media round table and said he hasn’t lost faith in the club, despite its poor start to the season. … The Fire have a laundry list of injured players, and most recently lost defender Matt Polster to an MCL injury.
Match-day injury announcements
Centerback Lamine Sané sustained a lower body injury in training earlier this week and is day to day. Right back Will Johnson is out sick.
Players to watch
Cristian Higuita: Higuita has been more hot than cold recently — aside from the Atlanta United match. When he plays well, good things happen for the Lions.
Chris Schuler: He’s now the veteran centerback with Sané, Spector and Tarek all out.
Josué Colmán: He’s starting and he’s playing up top. A good chance for the young designated player to shine.
- Match is tied at halftime
- Orlando City scores first (they have to at some point, right?)
- Cristian Higuita avoids a yellow card
