Orlando City vs Sporting Kansas City Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

Orlando City fell to a second consecutive defeat during the weekend, as they lost 4-0 against Houston Dynamo. Goals from Alberto Elis and Mauro Manotas provided a 2-0 advantage for the home team even before the hour mark. Orlando City’s pursuit of a goal left big gaps at the back, and Houston took full advantage through goals from Manotas and Rommel Quioto. Sporting Kansas City fell to yet another away defeat, as they lost 2-0 against Minnesota United. The home team had an excellent first half in which they scored through Abu Danladi and Christian Ramirez.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Orlando City will be delighted to return to home comforts, where they have a 100% winning record this season. Sporting Kansas City, meanwhile, are at a great disadvantage after losing Dwyer through suspension. The top scorer represented the best possible chance for the club to end a disappointing run of just one goal in five away matches. Sporting Kansas City only trip to the Orlando City stadium in 2015 ended in a disappointing defeat. Considering the immense home record, I would back Orlando City for a win. Sporting Kansas City have failed to score in four out of the five away matches. Orlando, meanwhile, have kept three clean sheets in the five home matches this season. Hence, I would consider backing Orlando City to keep a clean sheet.

Orlando City Preview

Orlando City were always going to face a tough test on the road, and it has proven to be the case with the team suffering back-to-back away defeats. The club’s only away win of the season was against New York City in the middle of April. Still, Orlando remain in the top two positions of the 2017 MLS table. Eastern Conference leaders Toronto are one point ahead, but they have played a game more. Orlando have a 100% record at the Orlando City stadium after winning all of their five games. Cyle Larin is the top scorer with six league goals.

Orlando City Team News

Rafael Ramos (muscle) and Kevin Alston (knee) are the only players unavailable for Orlando City.

Sporting Kansas City Preview

Sporting Kansas City’s disappointing away form continue, as they failed to score on the road yet again. The club has now scored just one goal in the five away matches and the record is in sharp contrast to the team winning the last four home games by scoring 10 goals. After failing to win the opening home game against FC Dallas, Sporting Kansas City have now managed four consecutive wins at the Children’s Mercy Park. Dwyer is the top scorer with five league goals.

Sporting Kansas City Team News

Cameron Iwasa (muscle) and Diego Rubio (cruciate ligament) are the only players unavailable for Sporting Kansas City. Dom Dwyer, though, is suspended for the game due to accumulated yellow cards.
