The regular season home finale has come and gone and Orlando City extended its winning streak to five games, sending the huge Citrus Bowl crowd of 40,000+ home with a 2-1 win over New York City FC. The Lions still have the tiniest of chances to sneak into the MLS playoffs as an expansion team, but honestly, finishing ahead of NYCFC feels just as good.

We're here to break down that win over our fellow 2015 expansion team and we'll talk about our key performances and our selections for Man of the Match. We also discuss the newly announced NWSL team, Orlando Pride, which the club announced on Tuesday, as well as the latest rumors swirling around about a potential trade that will bring Alex Morgan to the City Beautiful. We like the idea.

TML's own Jeff Milby stops by to give us his postmortem on Louisville City FC's season, and how the affiliation worked (or didn't) for both clubs. And we talk to Eugene Rupinski of The Brotherly Game about this weekend's upcoming regular season finale at Philadelphia Union. It's a jam-packed show!

Oh, and we give our key match-ups and final score predictions. Here's the rundown:

0:26- Our thoughts on an exciting 2-1 win over NYCFC and whether two key balls crossed the goal line.
