Orlando City have so far accrued 29 points in this season of the MLS

Also, Orlando have developed a habit of drawing football matches this season, which is reflected by their position in the table. With a fifth position in the league and 0 wins, 0 losses and 0 draws, they currently have 29 points in the League.

A win in this fixture would take Orlando City’s points to 32 in the League.
