Ruan is the most polarizing players on Orlando City's roster. When he's clicking, he's a gamebreaking auxiliary piece that can create devastating overlaps with Facundo Torres on the right flank. At his worst, he's a complete defensive liability and an attack killer in the final third.

Orlando can't afford a bad Ruan performance against Montreal, especially with the Canadiens' host of talented wingbacks and attacking threats.
