The Montréal Impact make their league home debut for 2015 against another recent MLS arrival, when they face expansion side Orlando City SC on Saturday afternoon at Olympic Stadium. The Impact are still looking to break into the goals column in league play this season, coming off a scoreless draw at New England last weekend. Orlando City have had a bright start to their MLS history, though they were pegged back for their first loss in a late 1-0 defeat by Vancouver Whitecaps FC last Saturday at the Citrus Bowl.
- The Impact are still looking for their first league goal of the season, reaching a scoreless draw at the New England Revolution in their second MLS game of the season. The Impact have scored five goals in three CONCACAF Champions League matches in 2015.
- Orlando City SC were shut out for the first time and lost for the first time in their MLS history, seeing Vancouver Whitecaps score the game’s only goal deep in stoppage time for a victory Saturday evening at the Citrus Bowl.
- Orlando City saw their shutout streak put to an end after 194 minutes with the dramatic Vancouver goal, the longest goalless skein in MLS so far this season.
