Cincinnati, Orlando City play to scoreless draw

March 5, 2023 GMT

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Orlando City goalkeeper Pedro Gallese and FC Cincinnati’s Roman Celentano both posted clean sheets in a scoreless draw on Saturday night.

Gallese made four saves for Orlando City (1-0-1), while Celentano stopped one shot for Cincinnati (1-0-1).

Cincinnati was aiming for a third straight victory over Orlando City. CF Montreal (2019-21) is the only team Cincinnati has beaten three times in a row. Cincinnati is 2-0-5 in its last seven road matches dating to last season. Cincinnati ended the campaign with just two losses in its last 14 road matches.

Orlando City was trying to begin a season with two straight wins for just the second time in club history (2017). Facundo Torres failed to match a club record with a goal in six straight matches dating to last season.

Cincinnati outshot Orlando 11-7 with a 4-1 advantage in shots on goal.

Both teams next play Saturday, with Orlando visiting DC United and Cincinnati hosting the Seattle Sounders.
