ORLANDO, Fla. – League-leaders Orlando City SC (17-4-4, 55 points) return home on Sunday evening to host the Dayton Dutch Lions at ESPN Wide World of Sports (WWOS), marking a major milestone for the club – its 100th USL PRO match. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET.
Despite falling to Wilmington Hammerheads FC on Thursday, Orlando can move within a point of claiming the regular season title with a victory on Sunday night. Sacramento Republic FC's draw with Wilmington on Saturday night left the Lions needing to earn four points in their final three games to be crowned regular season champion for the third time in four seasons.
Heading into Sunday’s match, the Dayton Dutch Lions are 6-5-2 on the road in 2014 with 20 goals scored and 29 conceded. Orlando, on the other hand, is 11-0-1 on its home pitch this season, recording an impressive 31 goals scored and eight against. Overall, the Lions boast an imposing 43-4-10 record at home.
City has a 3-0-4 all-time record against Dayton, who are coming off a 2-1 loss to the Colorado Rapids Reserves. In the only match-up between both sides this season, the Lions defeated the Dutch Lions 2-0 at DOC Stadium in Ohio in June to set a new club record undefeated streak. Kevin Molino and Adama Mbengue both scored in the road win.
