The Lions (8-7-4, 28 points) needed a stoppage-time own goal by Damion Lowe khổng lồ capture a rare (in 2022) shutout home victory over Inter Miami (6-8-4, 22 points) in a rain-soaked 1-0 match at Exploria Stadium. It continued the trend of every game in the rivalry being decided by one goal or ending in a draw and allowed Orlando lớn snap a three-match winless stretch (0-2-1) across all competitions.

“Very intense game,” Orlando city Head Coach Oscar Pareja said after the match. “I thought today was not an easy date after our last game & they (the players) bounced back. We know we have a lot of things to work (on), but today we deserved those three points and we’ll take it. We’re very proud.”

Pareja’s lineup included Pedro Gallese in goal behind a back line of Kyle Smith, Robin Jansson, Rodrigo Schlegel, & Ruan. Cesar Araujo was joined in central midfield by Junior Urso, behind an attacking line of Benji Michel, Mauricio Pereyra, và Facundo Torres, with Ercan Kara up top.

The start of the match was delayed nearly two-and-a-half hours by lightning in the area and rain fell heavily at times while fans huddled on the concourse and the teams stayed in the locker room areas.

Once the match got underway, the Lions continued their recent unwanted tradition of not playing well in the first half. Misplaced passes và poor communication prevented Orlando from getting much going on the attacking end & it also set up Miami with a great chance early.

Pereyra’s poor back pass was picked off and Indiana Vassilev raced toward goal, eventually firing a shot that hit Gallese in the face và deflected wide of the far post in the seventh minute.

“It was congested,” Pareja said of the midfield in the game. “It was heavy for us to lớn break the lines. We need balance, also. I think it’s something that we lacked in the last game, especially, when we conceded too much space. I thought it was a reason for our team to vì chưng that (defensive) job first & that’s why it was very congested.”

Miami wasted no time getting into the attack after the restart, with a cross coming right khổng lồ left for Robert Taylor, who muffed his header at point-blank range. The ball then deflected toward the over line but wide of goal.
