3/12: vs. FC Cincinnati, 7:30 p.m. ESPN+
The Lions return home in Week Three to face the most hapless franchise in Major League Soccer: FC Cincinnati. Orlando won twice and drew once against Jaap Stam's team last season including a 3-0 thrashing early in the season. Cincinnati overhauled its front office and technical staff, with new general manager Chris Albright and head coach Pat Noonan both coming over from Philadelphia. Luciano Acosta was great in his return to MLS and young striker Brenner will look to rebound after a tough start to life in the US.
