This Saturday, Sept. 2, the Lions play against the New England Revolutions in their first of four consecutive road matches. The stretch includes trips to D.C., Atlanta and Portland. Orlando City’s next home match is Sept. 27 in a rematch with the Revs.
This fixture was originally scheduled to be played on March 11, but severe cold weather caused the game to be rescheduled later in the season.

Orlando City players Dom Dwyer, Giles Barnes and Carlos Rivas have all experienced goal-scoring success against the Revolution. Dwyer has scored three goals in his last three games against New England; and Barnes scored twice in his last three appearances vs. the Revs. Rivas has scored once vs. New England -- it was his first career MLS goal which came on April 30, 2016 at Gillette Stadium.
Orlando City will be missing five fist team players against New England -- Cyle Larin (Canada) and Yoshimar Yotún (Peru) have been called up International duty for World Cup Qualifiers, Cristian Higuita has been suspended due to yellow card accumulation, while Jonathan Spector (knee) and Will Johnson (ankle) are out with injury.
