DC United vs Orlando City Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

DC United produced a major surprise by claiming in third consecutive league win as they beat New England 1-0 at the RFK stadium. United had several opportunities at a goal, but the deadlock was finally broken in the 71st minute when top scorer Luciano Acosta came up with a crucial effort. The poor form for Orlando City continued after the team suffered a 4-0 loss against New England Revolution. Kei Kamara turned out to be the star of the show after grabbing a hat-trick. Teal Bunbury rubbed salt into the wounds of Orlando City with a late effort, while Jose Aja was sent off for a second bookable offence in the 80th minute. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

DC United may have struggled against Orlando City with three defeats in the last four games, but the current match represents a great opportunity for United to get revenge for those losses. United come on the back of three consecutive wins, and they have kept a clean sheet in those three games. Orlando City have just one win in the last six games on the road, while the team has netted just four. I would go with a win for DC United. Orlando City’s lack of goals on the road has been profound with the team scoring just nine in 13 away games. DC United are the lowest scorers in the division with just 22 in 27 league games. I would go with this game to witness less than 2.5 goals.

DC United Preview

DC United surprisingly remain bottom of the table even after managing three consecutive wins. The club are three points behind Orlando City and may have to remain in this position for a fortnight – even if they manage a win against Orlando City due to the significantly poor goal difference. The team has scored at an average of less than a goal per game, but they have been able to keep three consecutive clean sheets – against all the odds. Luciano Acosta is the top scorer at the club by a significant margin with five league goals.

DC United Team News

Steve Birnbaum (concussion), Chris Rolfe (concussion), Taylor Kemp (hip), Robert Vincent (meniscus), and Patrick Nyarko (eye) are the injury worries for DC United.

Orlando City Preview

Jason Kreis has been able to keep the job at Orlando City despite his team going winless in the last eight. The last victory for Orlando was against Real Salt Lake on the road. This was also the only victory for the club in the last 13 league games. Orlando City’s form has especially nosedived in recent weeks after four defeats in five. The club have been able to avoid defeat only in the home match against Columbus Crew. The form is especially poor when it comes to away games, as Orlando have won just two away games so far this season. Cyle Larin is the top scorer with 10 league goals.

Orlando City Team News

José Aja is suspended for the game following his sending off against New England. Richie Laryea (hamstring), Josh Saunders (neck), Jonathan Spector (knee), and Kevin Alston (knee) are the players unavailable for Orlando City.
