Columbus Crew SC vs. Orlando City SC
MAPFRE Stadium — Columbus
June 29 — 7:30 PM ET

STREAMING: MLS LIVE on ESPN+ in US, on DAZN in Canada

Columbus Crew SC look to snap a five-match winless streak when they host Orlando City SC on Saturday in the first of two regular-season meetings between the Eastern Conference foes at MAPFRE Stadium. 

Crew SC (5-10-2) returned from the Gold Cup break in Week 16, losing at home to Sporting Kansas City, 1-0. Felipe Gutierrez scored the lone goal three minutes into the second half as Columbus were held scoreless for the seventh time this season. 

Like Crew SC, Orlando City SC (5-8-3), are below the playoff line in the Eastern Conference. The Lions, too, are looking to bounce back from a defeat, losing to conference rivals D.C. United Wednesday night at Audi Field. Wayne Rooney provided the drama, and a contender for MLS Goal of the Year, with a cheeky 70-yard strike following an Orlando corner kick in the 10th minute.
