Another mid-week match for Orlando City, another new look. 

Tonight in San Jose, Jason Kreis goes with what looks like it will be a 4-2-3-1 with Will Johnson and Servando Carrasco defending in the midfield. 

There are a couple of new faces making their first appearances in Purple tonight. Victor "PC" Giro and Léonardo Pereira will earn their first minutes with the first team. PC was signed on a three-year deal this offseason after playing for the Fort Lauderdale Strikers the year prior. Léonardo Pereira was acquired on loan from Orlando City partner club Atlético Paranaense. He began the season with Orlando City B before being called up to the first team in mid-April. 

Jonathan Spector was expected to start tonight, but will sidelined with an illness.
