The Argentine midfielder has three goals and three assists in his previous seven games after tying the score in the 53rd minute and then putting the visitors ahead 3-2.

At that point, FC Cincinnati has won seven straight games, making them the fourth team in MLS history to accomplish it in a single season (not counting the shootout period).

With their fourth straight road victory, FC Cincinnati broke club records and is currently one point behind Inter Miami CF in the Supporters’ Shield standings with a 10W-2L-3D record.

Since Luciano Acosta won the award on Matchday 34 in 2023, Orellano is the first player from Cincinnati to receive MLS Player of the Matchday recognition. Nine South American players have received Player of the Matchday accolades out of the first fifteen in 2024.

In addition, the 24-year-old is the youngest player to win Player of the Matchday thus far this year.
