It took some time for Orlando City. The first few weeks were admittedly rocky due to a combination of injuries, chemistry issues and calamity. For a while, there were questions about what the Lions had built and what it would take to get it to click.

Over the past few weeks, that doubt has all but disappeared as the Lions have looked like a legitimate contender.

Orlando City know that they have talent in their attacking front that can change a game in any moment. Veteran striker Dom Dwyer and playmaking midfielder Sacha Kljetsan are two pieces to that puzzle.

This past January, the Lions added another goalscorer in the 2018 MLS Draft, drafting Wisconsin forward Chris Mueller with the sixth overall pick.

With just 10 minutes remaining, Orlando City found themselves in a dire spot. Down a pair of goals on home turf, and in the midst of a frustrating run to open the season, the Lions were in need of some positive vibes as they looked to build some momentum from a win over the New York Red Bulls last time out.

Orlando City recorded their first win of the season against the New York Red Bulls in a match that saw almost everything, from goals to dirty fouls and controversial calls.

The match finished after seven goals were scored, with the home side prevailing, 4-3, at Orlando City Stadium.

Things got started quickly when the visitors opened the scoring after seven minutes.

Sacha Kljestan and Orlando City are still very much in an adjustment phase. The veteran midfielder is still getting familiar with his new home after missing the season's opening matches due to suspension while the Lions have struggled to find much cohesion on the field.

But now, as Orlando looks for its first win, the club's star midfielder will come face to face with a familiar club.

Orlando City still 'a little bit off' but not hitting the panic button quite yet

Orlando City's results have been way below expectations. For a team widely expected to compete for a playoff position, the Lions have grabbed just one point from their first three matches, digging a slight hole to start the 2018 season.

Still, despite the mistakes and the frustration that has come because of them, Orlando City isn't ready to panic.

It wasn't the prettiest win of the season but, with David Villa out of the lineup, NYCFC will be just fine with Saturday's result.

Ismael Tajouri and Maxi Moralez provided goals on Saturday as NYCFC topped Orlando City, 2-0, at Yankee Stadium.

The first goal finally came in the second half, and it was a calamitous one.

For an offseason of mass rebuild, with over a dozen faces coming in and out of the club, Orlando City's new-look lineup has brought in only the same old results.

While a draw and a loss, both at home to considerably weaker opponents, in their first two games has the Lions off to a poorer start than anticipated, the absences of several key starters including all three of Designated Players has highlighted the two disappointing affairs.

City is in an unusual low point in their season having lost three consecutive matches in all competitions, but a single win this weekend can put that all to bed and result in them lifting the Premier League trophy.

The Last Word's 2018 debut has a lot to work through after seeing two sides to the Black-and-Red

What do we make of D.C. United's season-opening draw with Orlando City? This was a game that featured very little in the way of middle ground from the Black-and-Red. That's what happens when you largely have things going your way playing 11v11, and then completely lose the plot when up a man and up a goal.
