When: Sunday, 7 p.m.
Where: NKU Soccer Stadium, Highland Heights, KY.
Last Go Around
The Lions head to face FC Cincinnati 2 looking to replicate their last meeting three weeks ago in which Orlando City B took a 4-0 shutout victory over the Orange and Blue at Osceola County Stadium. That match saw goals scored by Jack Lynn, Shak Mohammed, Juninho and Imanol Almaguer, the finish serving as the first in purple for the latter two. Goalkeeper Javier Otero had to tally just two saves in route to his third clean sheet of the year.
Last Time at NKU
Orlando City B has traveled just once to FC Cincinnati 2 in its history, taking all three points home via a 3-1 victory on June 25 of last year. Jack Lynn had his hand yet again in that contest, scoring a goal and providing an assist on the afternoon. Moises Tablante also found the back of the net, along with former Lion Mauro Bravo.
Back in the Mix
Orlando City Homegrown Wilfredo Rivera made his return to the pitch at the midweek from international duty, entering the match in the second half. Rivera spent the break with the Puerto Rican National Team in the preliminary rounds of the 2023 Concacaf Gold Cup, starting both matches for the side against Martinique and Suriname.
Leading the Way
Wednesday night saw a pair of Orlando City B players continue their respective streaks this season, with Nabi Kibunguchy and Jhon Solís each earning the start on the night as the two sit as the lone players to appear and start every match this season for the Lions. Kibunguchy leads the Lions with 1,333 minutes played, finding the back of the net twice this campaign, with Solís right behind in minutes played at 1,263.
