Orlando City vs Philadelphia Union, Thursday’s match for the Major League Soccer at Orlando City Stadium, USA.
The Florida team won a precious victory on their visit to the Columbus Crew, making it twenty-one points (six wins, three draws and eight losses), which allowed them to move up to eighth place in the Eastern Conference standings. This place is the first out of the playoffs classification zone.
Orlando City will try to get yet another victory when they host the Philadelphia Union at their Orlando City Stadium in the early hours of Thursday. Lions are determined to make a better season than the last one. The host team wants to enter the playoffs, but unlike the more common trends, the group performs better playing abroad, comparatively in front of their fans.
Now, in this home game fans want them to beat the current champions. Due to injuries Portuguese João Moutinho and Colombian Cristian Higuita, are in doubt for Wednesday’s meeting.
The Philadelphia Union suffered a 4-2 loss to New York City, and it’s the third game not knowing what it is to win. The Philadelphia Union seems to be in disarray, and I foresee that they may experience difficulties on this trip to Orlando. At this point, they remain with thirty-two points (nine wins, five draws and five losses), and didn’t lose first place in the Eastern Conference because their two closest pursuers did not win their games.
Philadelphia is one of the best teams at the conference, and they have scored thirty-four goals, but they also suffered twenty-five. It appears that the leaders will try to regain their status, and we must count on them to win, yet their performance in away games has been medium. It seems that Warren Creavalle and Olivier Mbaizo are left out due to injury.
This will be a very shared game, and everything indicates that any team can leave this game with the victory. I believe in the greater power of the visitors to win this game.
