ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Drake Callender made three saves for his second clean sheet of the season, and Inter Miami played Orlando in a scoreless draw on Wednesday night.

Miami (8-2-4), which has never defeated the Lions in MLS play in Orlando, had its five-game winning streak come to an end. Miami was looking to become the third team since 2019 to win six straight regular-season matches in the same season.

Orlando (3-5-4) is just 1-3-3 at home this season.

Lionel Messi did not play for Miami due to a left leg injury. Messi played the entire game on Saturday despite a first-half injury scare. He briefly left that game late in the first half after some issue with his left knee after being fouled by defender George Campbell.

Callender made a diving stop of Martin Ojeda’s shot in the 32nd minute to keep it scoreless.
