Orlando City has been beyond bad as of late. Their early season surge is keeping them alive in the east, but if they continue to play this way, it won't be long until they're bottom dwellers. Saturday's match may have been the worst of all too. The Lions (without misfit Cyle Larin, who has now been cleared to play) had ZERO shots on goal, compared to Chicago's 7. They took 3 shots all together, compared to the Fire's 17. Chicago controlled the ball 60% of the game, and that doesn't even tell the story of how lopsided this one felt. Final score- Chicago 4 Orlando 0.
Orlando City, with a loss or draw on Friday vs Real Salt Lake, will complete 2 full months, netting exactly zero victories. Not good. The playoff spot they currently hold will be in jeopardy as other teams continue to get better, and Orlando City keeps getting worse.
Final food for thought: Among all 12 playoff eligible teams in MLS, Orlando City has the worst goal differential @ -6. For more on this, click the audio file below.
