RECENT FORM VS. ORLANDO CITY SC
This will be the 10th regular-season match between the New England Revolution and Orlando City SC since the Lions joined MLS as an expansion side in 2015.
While this is the first time these two teams will do battle in the 2019 regular season, they did already meet at Exploria Stadium last month, when the Lions knocked the Revs out of the U.S. Open Cup in the Round of 16 with a 2-1 win in extra time.
New England, however, remain unbeaten against Orlando City at Gillette Stadium, where they've won three times and drawn once in four previous meetings.
The Revs continue to be red-hot as they extended their unbeaten streak to 10 games (6-0-4) on Sunday night with a 2-0 win at FC Cincinnati. It's the second-longest unbeaten run in club history, and with a win or draw on Saturday night against Orlando, the Revs would match the club-record 11-game unbeaten run (7-0-4) set at the start of the 2005 season.
With the Lions currently four points behind the Revs for the seventh and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, this is a vital six-pointer that you don't want to miss.
Overall Record vs. Orlando City: 3-2-4
Home Record vs Orlando City: 3-0-1
Last Meeting at Gillette Stadium: Revs 2, Orlando 0 (October 13, 2018)
Last Regular-Season Meeting at Exploria Stadium: Revs 3, Orlando 3 (August 4, 2018)
