NYCFC are going back to Orlando this weekend to take on Orlando City SC for the third and final time this season.
READ: 9 Reasons to Watch NYCFC at Orlando City
Let's find out some of the key numbers, find out what's changed at Orlando City since our last visit, and discover how they've been performing so far in 2017...
- Orlando City is unbeaten in their last six games against NYCFC (5W-1D), including two wins against them already this season.
- After five losses in their first 11 home league games (3W-3D), Orlando City has only lost four times in the ensuing 29 regular season MLS games played at home (15W-10D).
- Going into Wednesday night’s game, NYCFC had only been shut out in three of their 22 regular season away games since the start of the 2016 season. Their 34 away goals in that time is the most in MLS.
- Kaka has four goals in his last seven MLS appearances. He had five goals in his previous 15 regular season appearances. Orlando City has won 10 of the 19 games Kaka has appeared and scored in, though neither of the last two (1L-1D).
- Sean Okoli scored his first MLS goal in 13 appearances in league play on Wednesday night against Real Salt Lake. He made his MLS debut in 2014 for Seattle, but had yet to record a shot on target until this year with NYCFC (also played for the Revolution)./li>
- On Wednesday night, Carlos Rivas scored his second goal in his last five MLS appearances after only three in his first 54 league games. Rivas has taken at least two shots in eight of his 11 appearances in 2017.
