After an important win over FC Cincinnati that snapped a three-game losing streak, Orlando City SC host a struggling LA Galaxy side that has lost four in a row and will be without star Zlatan Ibrahimovic for a second straight game.

Nani scored a pair of goals in a nine-minute span, Tesho Akindele added a brace of his own and Dom Dwyer capped the scoring in the 82nd minute as Orlando City SC (4-6-3) scored five unanswered goals after falling behind early to beat FC Cincinnati, 5-1, at home Sunday. 

Without Ibrahimovic, who served the first of a two-game ban, the Galaxy (7-5-1) fell to the Colorado Rapids in the Week 12 finale Sunday night. Andre Shinyashiki scored the game's lone goal in the 82nd minute as the Rapids celebrated their first win of the season. 

In three of the four all-time meetings, the winning team has scored four goals. .
