Smelling a golden chance on home soil when the midweek MLS fixtures open up, Orlando will welcome San Jose to the Exploria Stadium in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

Starting with the hosts, marking their return from the international break and landing a deserved 3-2 victory away at Toronto, the mood in Orlando’s camp should be at a real high. Opening up the midweek fixtures sat second in the Eastern Conference and tipped as a clear pick to secure a play-off finish, The Purples have collected nine points from their last four MLS matchups and they have one attacking MVP enjoying another purple patch. Marking his own return from a one-match suspension by finding the net on the road last week, Portuguese star Nani has become a real talisman for Óscar Pareja’s side. Spearheading Orlando’s charge since opening the 2021 campaign, the former Manchester United winger has now bagged four goals in his last five MLS matchups and should be confident of extending on that run in the early hours of Wednesday morning.

As for the visitors, while Orlando might have continued on their own purple patch, the same cannot be said for a downbeat San Jose outfit. Really failing to build off of their eye-catching start to the 2021 campaign, The Earthquakes find themselves enduring a five-match winless run and have come under real scrutiny. Despite managing to snatch a hard-fought point away at fellow strugglers Austin last time out, that was the only point that Matías Almeyda’s men have mustered on their torrid winless run. Facing what should be a stern test when they travel to the Exploria Stadium in midweek, San Jose have also gained a real reputation for their issues in the final third. Drawing another blank over the weekend, Wednesday’s guests have found the net just once in over 500 minutes of action.
