This could be an interesting match as New York RB have their presumed home advantage while Orlando City are ahead 7 points in the Major League Soccer table.
There’s little time for restitution or working hard at the training pitch these days, with both teams having played their last game less than four days ago.
These teams have little in common geographically as Orlando City have to travel 1700 kilometers to reach their opponents. The trip home will be especially long if the match ends in defeat.
