What a difference a week makes for Orlando City SC who have now successfully hauled themselves back into the MLS Eastern Conference play-off spots after Saturday evening’s 2-1 victory over Montreal Impact.
After suffering the worst possible start whereby some poor defensive play allowed Impact dangerman Ignacio Piatti to pounce to put Mauro Biello’s side into a fourth minute lead, the Lions eventually roared back into action.
Largely a first-half to forget for Adrian Heath‘s side, Cyle Larin‘s 43rd minute leveller proved the turning point in a match that the Lions really needed to win to build confidence in a busy section of the campaign.
What’s more, Joe Bendik also deserved his fair share of high praise for another excellent performance between the sticks.
So here’s how I feel each Orlando City SC player stacked up following Saturday evening’s morale boosting win.
