Orlando City come into this fixture on the back of a pulsating 3-2 loss to Inter Miami on Sunday. A brace from Julian Carranza and a Rodolfo Pizarro goal sealed the deal for Diego Alonso's men. Daryl Dike and former Manchester United winger Nani scored the goals for Orlando City.

Nashville SC, on the other hand, lost 2-0 to Atlanta United on Sunday. A brace from Argentine attacker Pity Martinez secured the win for Atlanta United, as Nashville SC came up short at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
