FC Cincinnati vs Orlando City Prediction & Match Preview

FC Cincinnati vs Orlando City
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 29 September 2019
Kick-off at 22:00 UK/ 23:00 CET
Venue: Nippert Stadium (Cincinnati).

Cincinnati has already ruled out qualification to the post-season, and frankly, it was no surprise. They had placed themselves as the worst of the MLS for the whole of 2019, and are sure to end up in the dead-last spot in the East.

They may have the home advantage, and other than fans hoping for a consolation win, the team does not have much left in their tanks to find motivation.

Orlando, on the other hand, stands a distant chance to make it to the playoffs. But it needs to be mentioned that the chances for that to occur are very low. Still, they have nothing else to fight for, and we can count on them to put up a brave fight.

FC Cincinnati vs Orlando City Prediction

Despite the home status, the Orange and Blues are already eliminated and may think of this as a pointless exercise. Moreover, they are already the worst of the lot, and on the other hand, we have James O’Connor’s men who are determined to do anything they can, to make the most of the slim chance they have to make it to the next round.

Moreover, for the guests, this is one rare opportunity where they are considered the favorites, and if they fail to qualify, the players would want to present some good memories for their fans as the campaign comes to an end.

Finally, the sole h2h encounter between the two ended in an emphatic 5-1 win for Orlando, and coupled with the aforementioned observations, they are tipped to register the win this Sunday.
