Orlando City will host Nashville SC at Exploria Stadium on Saturday in the sixth matchday of the MLS regular season, less than a year after the same eliminated them from the US Open Cup.
The Lions climbed up to fourth place in the Eastern Conference with a 2-1 victory over the Philadelphia Union. They now have eight points, one more than the Boys in Gold, who lost to FC Cincinnati 1-0 for the second time in a row.

Orlando defeated Philadelphia last weekend, snapping the second-longest home winning streak in league history with just two goals in the first ten minutes. The Lions, who have lost four straight games played at Exploria Stadium in all competitions, now have the opportunity to begin their own home streak.
Nashville continues to struggle in the attacking third, having failed to score in three of their five games this season, despite having the 2022 MLS Golden Boot winner on the pitch for the full 90 minutes last Saturday.
The Boys in Gold may not be scoring as frequently as before, but their defence has been outstanding.
With what we have seen from this team under Gary Smith, playing a cagey style that depends on a few players to create and score, that shouldn't come as a surprise.
