Quote of the Week:
“As you know this is still a young team, but with very passionate supporters and the culture they have developed is very good. We came in to be the protagonists of MLS these last three years, we already won a championship and to enter a competition for the first time against Tigres we also had to install a good plan. Tigres is going to find a team with a lot of courage, with passionate fans and surely we’ll do everything we can to go through to the next round because we’re optimistic and we know we can do this.” -- Orlando City head coach Oscar Pareja
