Atlanta, Georgia 2021-09-14 19:40:14 –
Orlando City SC will be able to set a new club record in a single-season home win by hosting CF Montréal on Wednesday.
Lions (10-5-8, 38 points) are 7-1-4 on the 2021 home pitch, including 4-0-2 runs in the last six games. These seven victories are now in line with Orlando’s sum for both the 2015 and 2017 campaigns.
The club suffered a 3-0 defeat at Atlanta United on Friday.
“This is one of the most important weeks of the year,” said midfielder Andres Perea. “We know we have to step by step as a team. We have to focus on Wednesday games and play the best we can at home. We know we have to win. . “
Orlando is expected to welcome goalkeeper Pedrogagese after representing Peru in last week’s World Cup qualifiers.
Montreal (8-8-7, 31 points) will be in a difficult situation against Orlando, who has locked out the club in each of the last three meetings. Wilfried Nancy’s team struggled with the attack as they had less than one goal in seven of the last ten games.
After losing to Nashville SC 1-0 on Saturday and winning four undefeated games in a row, the club has hovered for most of the past two months, focusing on the post-season berth’s seventh-place cutoff. They will start keystretching on Wednesday, with six matches in both the MLS and Canadian Championships over the next 21 days.
Midfielder Georges Mihailovic said, “In addition to the Canadian Championship, there will be many matches over the next few weeks.” “This month is an important month for us. Being able to consolidate our position beyond the playoffs will help us finish the season.”
Winger Lassi Lappalainen and midfielder Ballou Jean-Yves both have inguinal injuries and may be about to return, Nancy said.
