The only thing better than a four-game winning streak is a longer winning streak. Orlando City won't have a chance to extend their run of form this weekend, as the club has a bye week, but there are two huge games left and if the Lions can win both, they might just sneak through the back door into the MLS playoffs.

That wouldn't have been possible without a big win over the Montreal Impact on Saturday night, but the Lions pulled it out with an 80th minute winner from Seb Hines. We break down the win over the Impact, including a scary clash of heads between Tommy Redding and Rafael Ramos, a great performance at right back from Brek Shea and a solid showing by the back line and defensive midfield.

We each select our Man of the Match and this week you get three different winners. We also discuss how the yellow cards to Kaká and Shea will affect next week's match against New York City FC and we even get into this Saturday's huge international match-up between the United States and Mexico.

We kept it short and sweet this week. Here's how it happened:

0:26- Our Montreal game rewind looks at a very important win for Orlando City and we still maintain it should have been a 2-0 final.

10:01- Our picks for Man of the Match

14:19- No Kaká or Shea against NYCFC. No problem?

20:10- USMNT vs. Mexico. Who you got?

We'll be back next week to recap the USA-Mexico match and look ahead to another monumental game against New York City FC in the Lions' home finale.
