Coming off their first derby matchup against Inter Miami CF, Orlando City SC draw another tough opponent when they take on NYCFC in the second match of Group A play for each side when they face off on July 14.
NYCFC will be coming off a bout with the Philadelphia Union in their first match, and will have to deal with an Orlando side in this one that played them tough last year.
The sides met three times in 2019, twice in MLS play and once in the Lamar Hunt US Open Cup. NYCFC got a 2-2- road draw at Exploria Stadium in the first of those matches on March 2, 2019, while the Lions were able to procure a road point of their own with a 1-1 result at Yankee Stadium on April 27. Then, Orlando upset NYC in the quarterfinals of Open Cup play, prevailing in penalty kicks 5-4 after the match ended in another 1-1 draw.
