The Boys in Gold pressured Orlando City SC throughout the match, creating multiple close-range chances and landing three shots on goal.

History Will Be Made: When the Boys in Gold battle Orlando City SC in Music City on Tuesday, Nov. 7 at 8 p.m. CT, GEODIS Park will host the first-ever MLS Playoff match in the stadium’s short history. GEODIS Park opened May 1, 2022 when it hosted a sellout crowd of 31,109 as the largest soccer-specific stadium in the U.S. and Canada.
