Seattle Sounders FC vs Orlando City Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

Seattle Sounders fell to another away defeat, as New York City were able to achieve a 2-1 win at the Yankee stadium. Cristian Roldan came up with the opening goal to shock New York City, who had been the better team throughout the game. However, David Villa returned to form with a brace in the second half to register a win for the home team. Orlando City were involved in a rollercoaster 3-3 draw with Montreal Impact. Goals from Blerim Dzemaili and Ignacio Piatti cancelled out goals from Matias Garcia and Carlos Rivas. Piatti, though, later provided Montreal with an advantage with his second goal of the evening, but Jonathan Spector came up with an equaliser deep into injury time. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

A few eyebrows were raised when Seattle Sounders managed just a single win in the first four home games in the 2017 season. The club are usually extremely strong at the CenturyLink Field and they have finally started demonstrating this form with three consecutive wins. Orlando are on a poor run with just one win in ten. Orlando have also lost both games against Seattle in the past. I would back Seattle Sounders to get a win. Only one of the last six home matches for Seattle Sounders has witnessed over 2.5 goals. Out of the last five MLS games involving Orlando, only two have produced over 2.5 goals. Hence, I would back this game to witness under 2.5 goals.

Seattle Sounders win – 8/15

Total goals under 2.5 – 43/40

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

Seattle Sounders FC Preview

Seattle Sounders will be glad to come back to the CenturyLink Field after four consecutive defeats on the road. The club had only managed two goals in these four games, while conceding 12 in the process. The home form is in complete contrast to the disastrous away run, as Seattle Sounders have been able to achieve four consecutive wins at home in all competitions. This includes three consecutive clean sheets in the league. Even with this good run of form, the club have been unable to make a push for the top six places. Clint Dempsey and Will Bruin are the top scorers with four goals each.

Seattle Sounders FC Team News

Manager Brian Schmetzer does not have any injury or suspension worries coming into the game.

Orlando City Preview

Orlando City’s disastrous form shows no signs of recovering, although the team would regard the game against Montreal Impact more like a victory. The entertaining 3-3 draw means that Orlando have taken just one win in the last nine league games. Home form was imperious at the start of the campaign, but the club has struggled even here with just one win in the last five. More worryingly, Orlando have lost three out of the last four away games. Cyle Larin’s goals have been a positive for Orlando, as the striker has now scored eight league goals.

Orlando City Team News

Cyle Larin is suspended for the game, while Orlando do not have any injury worries.
