We're back, and this time we're bringing goals in the run of play.
Orlando City scored two of those, in fact, erasing a 2-0 deficit at Montreal to draw 2-2 with the Impact at Olympic Stadium on Saturday night. Andrew Marcinko and Austin David break down a tie that felt more like a win, considering a plethora of missing players due to international call-ups and injuries. Despite playing on the road with a depleted roster and falling behind early, the Lions bounced back for an important road point.
And we're previewing this week's match-up with defending Eastern Conference champs D.C. United. Here to help us do that is Jason Anderson, the co-managing editor of the Black and Red United blog on SB Nation. He'll give us the scoop on what to expect on Friday and what Orlando City needs to do to be successful against one of the more experienced teams in MLS.
And we're bringing in our own Kevin Mercer to tell us about the fan experience this season at the Orlando Citrus Bowl. The press box is enclosed and a bit insulated from the buzz and excitement of the crowd, so it's up to our resident Mane Land soccer historian to let us know what it was like down in the seats for the first two huge Orlando City crowds.
And we give predictions about how the game will end!
Here's how things went down:
0:26- We're all pretty happy to have Kaká on the team and two good goals in our pockets.
15:56- Kevin paints the picture of what it's like to be down among the fans for these early MLS games.
26:26- Jason brings the D.C. United perspective and tells us the team's weaknesses.
44:25- Final prediction time!
