New York City FC 2, Orlando City SC 0 | 2018 MLS Match Recap
New York City FC had difficulties breaking through the Orlando City SC defense at Yankee Stadium on Saturday afternoon. And then Orlando let them in with a single mistake, leading to a 2-0 NYCFC win to keep the home side perfect in 2018.
Ismael Tajouri pounced on a mishit Joe Bendik pass for the opening goal in the 62nd minute, and Maximiliano Moralez scored an insurance goal 12 minutes later on a well-crafted move involving multiple NYCFC players.
Orlando had several chances to get on the board — primarily thanks to Justin Meram's innovation — but the loss leaves them winless through three matches in the still-young season.
