Game Central

What happens when two underdogs meet? Orlando City already ended LAFC’s tournament run, winning with determination and patience instilled by new head coach Oscar Pareja. The Lions’ defense has only conceded four goals in their last five games and Nani has looked to be worth every penny this year. Both they and the Loons have gutted out penalty shootout wins in the tournament, but Minnesota is also riding high off defanging San Jose in a 4-1 win. MNUFC has made all of its run without Ike Opara, most of it without Kevin Molino and went the last game without Romain Metanire — likely three of the best players on the team. The clubs will enter the game with the mindset of an underdog looking to book a place in the Final – everything to play for, nothing to lose.
