In a highly challenging visit to the city of Orlando, TFC claimed a supremely important victory for the stretch of the season and, above all, in the development of a promising 2024 for The Reds in their quest to make it to the MLS Playoffs.

Defeat after defeat was the story for TFC when facing Orlando City

Toronto FC vs Orlando City had been a nightmare for The Reds in recent years, so much so that their record in the last 5 encounters between these two clubs had seen 4 victories for Orlando and only one draw. That is, until April 27th, when this poor streak was broken.

With a historic comeback for Toronto, they managed to salvage 3 extremely important points in the season. Despite being down 1-0 for most of the match, there was a flurry of goals for Orlando City, where Prince Owusu and Tyrese Spicer stepped up as saviors to quickly score 2 goals in the final stretch of the match, securing the victory for TFC.

Toronto FC waited 7 years to experience a comeback away from home

This victory by Toronto FC against Orlando City marked the first time that The Reds achieved a comeback as visitors since May 2017 when, in that match against Columbus Crew, Tosaint Ricketts (in the 81st and 90th minutes) became the hero to lead TFC to a 1-2 comeback victory.

It took almost 7 years to experience a comeback away from home. This highlights the current moment for TFC, where there is evident significant change compared to the previous season, and the players seem to have a greater commitment to MLS competition in 2024, aiming to make it to the Playoffs and compete for the championship.
