The home side went down to ten men when Rafael Ramos was sent off in the 26th minute after a clash with Brandon Vincent.

On the road against Orlando City, the Black-and-Red will probably not get the kind of bounces that see their opponent hit the woodwork four separate times, so they're going to have to build upon the improvements that saw them snap a three-game losing streak over the weekend in Vancouver.
