Orlando City vs FC Dallas Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Orlando City returned back to winning ways in emphatic fashion after getting a 6-1 win over New England Revolution at the Orlando City stadium. Orlando raced to a 3-0 lead within 43 minutes after goals from Antonio Nocerino, Sebastian Hines, and Kaka took advantage of Xavier Kouassi’s 11th minute red card. Lee Nguyen did pull one back just before half-time, but late goals from Kaka, Dom Dwyer, and Victor Yotun thrashed the away team. FC Dallas picked up the first win since August after beating Colorado Rapids 2-0 at home. Early goals from Manuel Figueroa and Roland Lamah lead the path for a comfortable Dallas win. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Dallas have been able to win both matches against Orlando in the past. However, an away match has been a problematic area for Dallas throughout the campaign, as the team has only managed three wins on the road. Dallas have also lost the last five away games without exception. After having produced a brilliant performance against New England Revolution, I would back Orlando to utilise home form and get a win. The goal from Lee Nguyen in the midweek match against New England prevented Orlando City’s hopes of getting a first clean sheet in a very long time. Orlando City have not kept a clean sheet in the last 13 matches. Even with Dallas goal scoring troubles, I would back both teams to score.

Orlando City win – 13/10

Both teams to score – 1/2

Orlando City saw over 1.5 goals in 9 out of their last 10 games played

FC Dallas saw over 1.5 goals in 9 out of their last 10 games played

FC Dallas have conceeded only 0 goals in their last 3 games against Orlando City

Orlando City Preview

Orlando will have gained a massive confidence from the recent win over New England Revolution, although they played against 10 men for most of the game. Even then, it takes a lot of effort to score 6 against a team. The victory, though, may not be enough to help the club make a push for the top six in the last three matches of the season. New York Red Bulls are five points ahead and have played a game less. Orlando also have to hope that other teams like Montreal Impact and New England Revolution also drop points. Cyle Larin is the leading scorer at Orlando with 12 goals in the league.

Orlando City Team News

Jonathan Spector and Victor Pagliari Giro are suspended for the game. Josh Saunders (neck), Kevin Alston (knee), and Cristian Higuita (calf) are the players unavailable due to injuries.

FC Dallas Preview

Dallas were finally able to conclude a winless run that had stretched beyond 10 matches and had been starting to affect the club on all fronts. Dallas could not have hoped for this win at a better time, as it has reignited the club’s hopes of qualifying for the play-offs with four matches left in the season. Dallas have been able to get back into the top six by overcoming the likes of San Jose Earthquakes and Houston Dynamo. As a result, destiny is back in the hands of Dallas.

FC Dallas Team News

Tesho Akindele is the only Dallas player suspended for the game. Kellyn Acosta (overload) is the player unavailable due to injury.
