Slumping NYCFC desperate for win over Orlando City

With no wins or goals scored, New York City FC have reached a pivotal juncture of not only the season but also the MLS is Back Tournament ahead of their Group A matchup against Orlando City on Tuesday.

NYCFC (0-3-0, 0 points) lost their first group-stage game 1-0 to Philadelphia. They would be unlikely to advance to the event’s knockout stage with a defeat to the Lions (1-1-1, 4 points), who rallied to beat Inter Miami 2-1 in their first tourney game.

The top two teams in each of the six groups as well as four third-place finishers qualify for the next round of the tournament being held at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex near Orlando, Fla.

“If we want to have it in our hands, we need to win the next game,” NYCFC coach Ronny Deila said. “If we draw, then it’s not in our own hands, but it’s still a possibility. We, of course, are going into it wanting to win and going for three points in the next game.”

New York City has no chance unless its offense wakens.
