Can Caden Clark do it yet again? The 17-year-old hopes to help the New York Red Bulls extend an unbeaten streak to three matches when they take on Orlando City SC Sunday night at Red Bull Arena. 

The Red Bulls (7W-8L-3D) are coming off a 1-1 draw against Supporters' Shield-leading Toronto FC in East Hartford Wednesday, while the Lions also shared the points by the same scoreline against NYCFC at Exploria Stadium.

This is the second meeting this month, with Orlando City SC cruising to a 3-1 victory over the Red Bulls on Oct. 3, with Junior Urso scoring what proved to be the winner in the 50th minute. 

New York Red Bulls

Caden Clark made history Wednesday night, becoming the youngest player to score in his first two MLS appearances as the 17-year-old's golazo in the 77th minute securing a 1-1 draw with Toronto FC. Clark came off the bench as part of a double substitution and put a blast from distance past Toronto FC goalkeeper Quentin Westberg.

"It’s a kid playing high right now, high on life and high on the energy of making his debut, and things are falling into place," interim coach Bradley Carnell said. "He has certain qualities, when all of this comes together and the kid has a chuckle in his boots, yeah, I mean, there’s wonders that can happen."

Orlando City SC

Chris Mueller scored another goal against NYCFC, his third this season, but the Lions conceded a Keaton Parks equalizer just before halftime and settled for a 1-1 draw Wednesday night. It's the Lions third draw in their last four matches, all part of an unbeaten streak that is now 11 matches. 

Adding to their already deep attacking group, Orlando acquired winger Alexander Alvarado on loan from Ecuadorian side S.D. Aucas with a permanent transfer option for after the 2020 season.
