Orlando City SC Falls on the Road to Inter Miami CF

LAUDERDALE  – Orlando City SC (0-1-1, 1 point) dropped a 5-0 decision on the road to Inter Miami CF (2-0-1, 7 points) on Saturday afternoon at Chase Stadium.

“Obviously a very disappointing day for us. Recognizing from minute one to the end of the game, that didn't look like us in many areas and obviously in a team like them [Miami], we cannot permit [them] to have that many spaces and lose many duels and give them that possibility to be sitting in our box, in those counterattacks,"said Head Coach Oscar Pareja. So really, really disappointed but we're pushing as a group. You know that I have a big respect for this group, their professionalism and what they do. And if there is any responsibility, we will search to find answers, but this group, professionalism will never be on the line.” 

Match Notes:
