Columbus Crew vs Orlando City Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

Columbus Crew managed a first home win of the season after managing to beat Portland Timbers 3-2 at the MAPFRE stadium. An exciting first half saw Portland take the lead through Dairon Asprilla. However, Columbus Crew went ahead in front through goals from Justin Meram and Ola Kamara. Fanendo Adi’s goal in first-half injury time concluded a pulsating first half. Portland were unable to hold on to the lead again, as Niko Hansen scored the equaliser with six minutes of normal time left. Orlando City made it two wins on the bounce after a 2-1 win over Philadelphia Union. Cyle Larin scored a goal in either half to cancel out Charles Sapong’s equaliser in the 52nd minute.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Columbus Crew did not have an international break as they played against Portland. However, this is likely to affect the team considering that it is still early days. Home form has been reasonably good for Columbus Crew. They are up against an Orlando City team, which managed two of the three away wins last season only in the final few weeks. Confidence from recent wins and home form makes Columbus Crew my favourite for a bet in the game. Both teams have been on an excellent scoring form, but Columbus Crew’s Ola Kamara has been in outstanding form. He has scored in the last three games. The 27-year-old has scored three goals in his two appearances against Orlando City. I would back Kamara to score anytime in the game.

Columbus Crew win – 4/6

Ola Kamara to score anytime – 10/11

Columbus Crew Preview

Columbus Crew have been able to transform draws into wins in the last two matches, as they have capitalised on the form of their forwards to secure back-to-back wins. Ola Kamara’s form has been excellent in the last three games, and the 27-year-old has scored in the last three games. A major positive for manager Gregg Berhalter is watching his team score in each of the four league matches. Yet, there has been only one team sheet along the way. Columbus Crew have conceded four goals in these games while scoring seven. In doing so, they have scored the second highest tally in the Eastern conference.

Orlando City Preview

Orlando City have had just two games in the 2017 MLS season due to an international break and a postponement. It has been the perfect start for the club, as they have managed two wins while conceding just one goal. A lot was feared for the club when Kaka suffered an injury on the opening day of the season. Yet, Orlando City coped reasonably well in the game against Philadelphia Union. The challenge may come in the next few days, as Orlando City prepare to face the first away game of the season against Columbus Crew.
