MLS Today: Previewing Minnesota United-Orlando City SC MLS is Back Tournament semifinal

Who will join the Portland Timbers in next week’s MLS is Back Tournament final? We’ll find out tonight, but before Minnesota United and Orlando City SC battle in the second semifinal (8 pm ET | ESPN2, ESPN Deportes; TSN, TVAS2), MLS Today has you covered with all the big storylines taking you up to kickoff.

Beginning at 7:30 pm ET on MLSsoccer.com, Facebook and Twitter, hosts Susannah Collins, Calen Carr and Charlie Davies will take a look at both teams’ starting XIs, with a few interesting decisions to mull over.

They’ll also take a listen to some of the best audio from coaches Oscar Pareja and Adrian Heath and ask the question: Which club has more pressure on them tonight?

With former Lions boss Heath at the helm, have the Loons jumped to being the second best team in the West? And who would the Timbers prefer to play in the final?

Tune in for all that and a look back at last night’s first semifinal between the Timbers and Philadelphia Union.
