Match preview

After a memorable mid-week victory, will Orlando City continue their positivity?

On Wednesday night, the Lions took on Nashville SC in the U.S. Open Cup quarter-finals.

It looked like being a heartbreaking night for the hosts until, in the 94th minute, Rodrigo Schlegel equalised, forcing extra time and then penalties.

Ercan Kara, Per Jansson, Kyle Smith, Alexandre Pato, Antônio Carlos and then Facundo Torres all converted from 12 yards.

Meanwhile, Pedro Gallese made two saves, thereby sending Orlando through to the last four.

Óscar Pareja's side will now host New York Red Bulls in the semis and they'll also host the final, against Sacramento Republic of SKC, should they advance.

Back in MLS, despite a surprise 1-0 defeat to FC Cincinnati last time out, the Lions remain fifth in the Eastern Conference.

So, will there be more to celebrate for the side from the sunshine state?

D.C. United meanwhile make the long journey south to Florida sat rock bottom of the east and seemingly unable to buy a victory.

The Black-and-Red were swatted aside 3-1 by Nashville last weekend, meaning they're now winless in six.

In all, Chad Ashton's side have just 14 points from 15 outings, meaning they're now dead-last in the overall standings.

Thus, Orlando are likely to win at Exploria Stadium.
