Orlando City SC and LAFC face off in the second round of the knockout stage inside the MLS bubble in Orlando on Friday. If this game is tied after 90 minutes it will go straight to penalty kicks to see who advances to the next round. 

Orlando City has found a lot of success so far during the MLS tournament, and they hope to continue that in this game. To start off the tournament, Orlando City fell behind Inter Miami early in the game, but two goals in the last 20 minutes allowed them to come away with a victory. In the second game of the tournament, Orlando City’s offense was again good putting up three goals against NYC FC and that led to the victory.

The last game of the group stage Orlando City knew they were onto the next round, and played to a 1-1 draw. In the knockout stage, Orlando City’s defense was strong allowing only one Montreal Impact shot on goal and that shot was saved. In that game, Orlando City had a goal in the 60th minute by Tesho Akindele and that led to a 1-0 victory. 

On the other side of this matchup is LAFC who like to play an open game of soccer which means lots of goal scoring, and lots of goals given up. In the first game of the tournament, LAFC and the Houston Dynamo played to a 3-3 draw. 

In the second game, LAFC’s offense was strong once again putting up six goals against the LA Galaxy and that led to a 6-2 victory. In the last game of the group stage, LAFC found success scoring against the Portland Timbers, but the offense was an issue and that led to a 2-2 draw. 

In the first game of the knockout stage, LAFC’s offense was again strong against the Seattle Sounders scoring four goals and that led to a 4-1 victory. The offense did look better against the Seattle Sounders but they still haven’t been able to keep a clean sheet.

LAFC’s offense is good and for Orlando City, they are going to need to score goals to keep it close. They might not do that, but there will be enough goals for the over to cash.
