50 - Milestone for Mauro

If he appears on Saturday, Mauricio Pereyra will record his 50th appearance in all competitions for Orlando City. Since arriving as a Designated Player in August 2019, Pereyra has recorded four goals and 21 assists, the latter number ranking fourth in franchise history. With his next assist, not only will Pereyra tie Kaká and Chris Mueller for second on that list, but he will become just the fourth player in club history to record a double-digit assist season, after Kaká, Yoshimar Yotún, and Nani.

2.15 - Revs gunning for history
*

The New England Revolution, whom Orlando City will face on Saturday night, are in the midst of running away with the 2021 Supporters’ Shield, leading second-place Seattle by ten points. At 2.15 points per game, the Revs are on pace to break 2019 LAFC’s all-time single-season points record (the Black and Gold put up 72 points on 2.12 PPG). Orlando City has a chance to put a significant dent in the Revs’ chances, though, as the two teams will face off twice in the final six weeks of the campaign.

Oscar Pareja has enjoyed enormous success against the Revolution in his career. While he has yet to face the Revs in the MLS regular season as Orlando City Head Coach, he does have a six-game winning streak against New England in regular season competition going all the way back to 2013, when he was boss of the Colorado Rapids.

11 - Slow Bou, heel Gil

Orlando City will have to handle New England’s devastating duo of Designated Players, Carles Gil and Gustavo Bou. The two have combined for 11 goal contributions against Orlando in just four matches over the past two seasons. Bou has four goals against the Lions in all competitions, while Gil has two goals and five assists. In 2021, Gil leads the league with 16 assists, while Bou is fourth in the Golden Boot race with 12 goals.
