A look at the upcoming game
Orlando City SC (3-3-6, 15 pts) @ New York City FC (4-4-5, 17 pts), 4:30 p.m. ET (ESPN/ESPN Deportes)
New York City FC will look to recover from its record-tying loss to cross-Hudson rivals the Red Bulls a week ago. The 7-0 loss equaled the biggest margin of victory in MLS history and was last reached 15 years ago. The loss ended a five-game unbeaten streak for NYC, the longest in the club's one-and-a-half year history. Patrick Viera will have to fill the spot opened by Ronald Matarrita's departure for Costa Rica and the Copa America. The Lions have a far greater void to fill, however, with Kaka a late callup to Brazil's Copa America squad. Orlando is 2-2-3 this year with Kaka in the lineup and 1-1-3 without him. Orlando also will have to compensate for the suspensions of David Mateos (thrown out of OC's 2-2 draw against Philly in injury time last week) and Cristian Higuita for accumulated yellows.
