DC United

Last updated: Thu 27 June 2019 14:48
In Brief

DC United had to play 120 minutes in the US Cup in order to see off Philadelphia. Unavailable players include Oniel Fisher and Donovan Pines while Joseph Mora is set to return. Both Junior Moreno and Paul Arriola are on international duty.

Looking Back

DC United beat Philadelphia in dramatic fashion in the Cup, scoring in the 118th and 120th minute of extra time to win 2-1

DC have not won an MLS game in the last five having drawn four in that run

Looking Ahead

Rooney will lead the line against Orlando having scored 3 in his last five in all competitions.

DC will play with four at the back with Joseph Mora returning to fitness with Ben Olsen going with a flat back four

Points of Interest

DC are unbeaten in the last four at home but face NYC FC in the cup before facing Orlando in the next MLS game.

Orlando City SC

In Brief

Cristian Higuita ruled out. Adam Grinwis and Joao Moutinho questionable. Dom Dwyer and Danilo Acosta expected to be available. Sebastian Mendez, Kamal Miller, Greg Ranjitsingh and Will Johnson on international duty

Looking Back

Needed extra time to progress in the US Open Cup as they secured a narrow 2-1 win at home to New England Revolution

Have struggled away from home in the MLS with their win over Montreal Impact the only time they have picked up all three points and kept a cleansheet in last five games.

Looking Ahead

Higuita is a fresh injury concern with the midfielder suffering a hamstring injury in the cup game and is ruled out

Orlando will also be without Mendez, Miller, Ranjitsingh and Johnson all of whom are on international duty

Moutinho and Grinwis are both listed as doubts due to quad injuries

Dwyer is lacking match fitness but has been removed from the injury list and should be available along with Acosta who is back from international duty

Points of Interest

A penalty shootout win in the US Open Cup has been Orlando's only success in last four meetings against DC United, having lost the last two games.
