Lions in second-consecutive postseason berth
ORLANDO, FLORIDA – Orlando City Soccer punched its ticket to its second-consecutive postseason on Sunday night, taking a 2-0 victory over CF Montréal at Stade Saputo to clinch a berth in the 2021 Audi MLS Cup Playoffs.
With the victory, the Lions finished at sixth in the Eastern Conference, now slated for a Round One matchup against Nashville SC at Nissan Stadium.
Through three fixtures against the Blue and Gold this year, each match has resulted in a deadlock, the most recent coming in City’s regular-season home finale on Oct. 31.
Sebastián Méndez and Daryl Dike each scored for the Lions in their Decision Day fixture, the former netting the eventual game-winner in the 55th minute for his first goal in purple, while the latter added the insurance with his 10th goal of the year in the 86th.
The side also added to its single-season shutouts record, tallying its ninth of 2021 with Pedro Gallese registering three saves on the afternoon.
The Audi 2021 MLS Cup Playoffs will kick off on Nov. 20, seeing 12 single-elimination playoff matches played across two weeks all aired on national television leading into the 2021 MLS Cup on Dec. 11.
Matchup dates, times, as well as broadcast details will be announced in the coming days.
