City FC will have to avoid feelings of deja vu as they play Orlando City for the second time in nine days. The first match was last Saturday in Florida, resulting in a 1-0 victory for Harrisburg - their best performance of the 2016 season.
Since then, Harrisburg lost their home opener due to a last minute goal by visiting Louisville City. Despite the loss, City FC looked strong at points in the game, utilizing their hybrid 4-4-2 / 4-2-3-1 to keep possession and look for opportunities to attack.
Orlando City B beat the Pittsburgh Riverhounds on Friday night in Pittsburgh thanks to two goals from defender Tyler Turner. They will look to continue the momentum from their first win as they travel down the interstate to Harrisburg.
Orlando with be buoyed by the return of captain Lewis Neal, who received a red card against in their match against Harrisburg and was suspended for one match. Turner, Bryan Rochez, and forward Michael Cox are all players to watch in Orlando’s 4-2-3-1 formation.
