MLS: New York Red Bulls at Orlando City SC Matt Stamey-USA TODAY Sports

Orlando City provided the energy rather than the Red Bulls as the Lions beat New York 3-1 on Saturday afternoon to run the team’s record unbeaten streak to nine matches. We’re here to break down another exciting result for Orlando, hand out our Man of the Match, and discuss the mounting injury issues that have cropped up in recent weeks.

After our match discussion we check in on the Pride, who were off this past week but some of the team’s players were out and about around the world picking up minutes. The Pride themselves will host Houston on Friday in their first “home” match of 2020 — the game is actually going to be held at Orlando City B’s home in Kissimmee.

Our old friend Pat Murphy from Massive Report stopped by to preview the second of Orlando City’s two matches this week — a meeting at home Sunday night against the Columbus Crew. Pat catches us up with all the latest news from Caleb Porter’s team in what could turn out to be a meaningful game in the Supporters Shield race.

Our listener mail inquired about lopsided losses in England and Orlando’s new Moniker Kits this week. If there’s anything — and we do mean anything —you want us to address on our next show, just ask by tweeting it to us at @TheManeLand with the hashtag #AskTMLPC. Plus, we dove into our key match-ups and score predictions for this week’s matches — tonight against Atlanta United on the road and Sunday at home against the Crew.

That’s all for this week.

Stay safe and enjoy the show!
