Philadelphia Union vs Orlando City SC Predictions
Key Stat: Philadelphia Union is currently on a 15-game unbeaten streak at home
- The Philadelphia Union have won their last two matches against Orlando City.
- The Orlando City SC has won its last four MLS matches
- Philadelphia’s midfielder, Daniel Gazdag, has eleven goals in his last eleven MLS matches
The Philadelphia Union, the current overall league leaders with sixty points in 30 games played, head into this match coming off a 2-0 win against the New York Red Bulls at the Red Bull Arena. The win extended their win streak to four, and with them up against a seventh-place Orlando City SC, it should be a walk in the park for the Philadelphia Union. Orlando City’s last league game was against the Seattle Sounders. They won the match by three goals to two. Orlando City SC is only one point clear of the danger zone as they are yet to cement their spot in the playoffs.
Philadelphia Union and Orlando City had six victories from their sixteen prior encounters. Between them, five games have resulted in draws. Orlando City is playing well away from home, while Philadelphia Union is doing well at home. Orlando City will be confident going into this game. In their most recent match, they defeated the Sacramento Republic 3-0 to win the US Open Cup, giving them their first title as an MLS team. However, Philadelphia Union remains a dominant force in the league, and I’d back them to take all three points at the Subaru Park.
Key Stat: Philadelphia Union has failed to score in only home game this season
- The last four games for Philadelphia Union ended with scoring two or more goals.
- Only one of the last five games for Philadelphia Union has ended, with both teams scoring.
- Orlando City SC has scored in the last five games they have played on the road.
The Orlando City SC faces a Philadelphia Union side that has scored the most goals in the MLS this season, 63 goals. Philadelphia is a balanced team as they also have the best defence in the league, conceding only 21 goals in thirty games played this season. Orlando City SC is a team that has conceded more than they have scored this season, with 40 goals conceded in 28 games. In recent times, however, the Orlando City SC has been in a fine goal-scoring form as they have scored in the last five games they have played on the road. I’d reckon Orlando to at least put one past the present league leaders. Both teams to score would be a fair pick in this one.
