7/9 vs. Inter Miami, 7:30 p.m. ESPN+
The first proper rivalry game of the season (if you consider Ft. Lauderdale a rival). Inter Miami is a bad football club. David Beckham's club entered the league with unparalleled hype, but have been colossal failures. However, even with Miami's underwhelming results and rosters, the Herons have consistently given Orlando trouble. The Lions might've gone undefeated last year with a win and two draws, but those were far from easy results, and the two teams were even closer when they played in 2020.
