Colorado Rapids vs. Orlando City SC | 2020 MLS Match Preview

2020 MLS Regular Season Week 2
Colorado Rapids vs. Orlando City SC
Dick's Sporting Goods Park – Commerce City
March 7 – 9:00 PM ET


The Colorado Rapids look to build off the momentum from a season-opening win at D.C. United when they take on Orlando City SC in their home opener Saturday night.

The Rapids erased a second-half deficit after just seven minutes and then took the win in stoppage time through substitute Jonathan Lewis. Kei Kamara canceled out Russell Canouse's opener with a headed goal off a driven service by Jack Price in the 67th minute.

Playing without the suspended Nani, Orlando City SC opened the Oscar Pareja era with a drab 0-0 home draw against Real Salt Lake. Chris Mueller had the best chance for either team in the 78th minute, but Zac MacMath made the close-range save. On the other side, Pedro Gallese only had to make one save for the clean sheet.
