Fire, Orlando City Have Much in Common During Tough Seasons

Chicago Fire’s Recent Surge

Chicago has won two in succession and is unbeaten in its beyond four matches. Their first road victory of the season was a commanding 4-1 victory over Toronto FC on Saturday. The Fire have outscored the opposition 8-4 during their current run.

Fabian Herbers played a crucial role against Toronto, collecting two assists and earning a spot on MLS’s Team of the Matchday for his efforts. Despite being held to two goals this season, both scored within the first three matches, Herbers’ contributions go beyond scoring.

“He just does all the little things that sometimes go unnoticed but is very valuable to the team, his work rate is incredible, and he always finds ways to be positive and help the team.”

– Frank Klopas

Orlando City’s Struggles

Orlando, meanwhile, is winless in its past five matches, going 0-3-2 during that stretch. They are coming off a 2-2 draw against Charlotte FC on Wednesday, which marked the most goals the club has scored since a 3-2 win against the Philadelphia Union back on May 11. The Lions, whose 19 goals on the season are the second-fewest in MLS, had scored just three goals total in the six matches before Wednesday.

Midfielder Nico Lodeiro emphasized the need for more goals: “We need to create more and especially we need to score more goals. The team needs goals to win a game, not just play with possession or great chances because, in the end, you can create many chances but you need to score. We’re working on this.”

Key Players and Performances

Facundo Torres had a goal and an assist in the draw against Charlotte and has two of his three goals on the season in the past four matches. His tallies are second on the team behind Duncan McGuire, who has six goals.

Home and Away Records

Orlando’s home record this season is a disappointing 1-5-3, reflecting their struggles to capitalize on home advantage. In contrast, Chicago’s recent performances indicate an upward trend, suggesting they might pose a significant challenge even on the road.

“We need to create more and especially we need to score more goals, the team needs goals to win a game, not just play with possession or great chances.”
