Orlando City vs Vancouver Whitecaps Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

Orlando City failed to take a win in yet another weekend, as they could only draw 1-1 with Columbus Crew at home. Alhassan Abubakar came up with the opening goal after 35 minutes, but Giles Barnes provided the equaliser for Orlando after 67 minutes. Orlando were unable to take advantage of Columbus Crew being reduced to 10 men following Harrison Afful’s sending off in the 77th minute. Vancouver Whitecaps had to settle for a 1-1 draw with Seattle Sounders. Nicolas Lodeiro’s early penalty provided a lead, but Fredy Montero helped Vancouver get back into the game even when they were at a numerical disadvantage following Tony Tchani’s red card.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Orlando City are without a win in the two games against Vancouver Whitecaps. Carl Robinson’s team make the trip to the Orlando City stadium with only four away wins this season. Two of those victories have come in the last four away matches to provide the team with confidence. Orlando City have failed to win the last five home games, but they have drawn three of those matches. Vancouver’s recent game against Orlando also finished as a draw. I would back this game to produce a draw.

Fredy Montero has been in excellent form after scoring in four out of the last five games. He is all set to make his first appearance against Orlando City, who have conceded 11 in the last six games. I would back Montero to score anytime in the game.

Draw – 12/5

Fredy Montero to score anytime – 7/5

Orlando City Preview

The last league victory for Orlando City came back at the start of July when the team had a narrow win over Real Salt Lake. It is the only victory for the club in the last 11 league matches. Manager Jason Kreis is now in danger of losing his job after losing the support of fans. One of the few positives for the club even with this poor form is that the team remains only five points behind the play-off places. Orlando are five points behind Montreal Impact, but the former has played a game more. Cyle Larin is the top scorer at Orlando City this season with nine league goals.

Orlando City Team News

Orlando City will be without Will Johnson (ankle), Jonathan Spector (knee), Victor Giro (muscle), Rafael Ramos (hamstring), and Kevin Alston (knee) due to injury.

Vancouver Whitecaps Preview

Vancouver Whitecaps would be delighted at taking a point against Seattle – one of the top teams in the division – in difficult circumstances. However, the result means that Vancouver will be nervously looking beneath the table in the hope of managing to stay in the play-off places. The team has a two-point advantage over San Jose Earthquakes in the seventh place. Vancouver Whitecaps have 35 points and the possibility of catching up with FC Dallas and Houston Dynamo – two struggling teams in the last few weeks – still remains high. Fredy Montero now has 11 league goals for Vancouver to stay top of the club goalscoring charts.

Vancouver Whitecaps Team News

Matias Laba (cruciate ligament), David Edgar (knee), and Brett Levis (cruciate ligament) are the players unavailable for Vancouver Whitecaps.
