Columbus Crew vs Orlando City
Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday 22nd July 2018
Kick off at 0:30 UK/ 01:30 CET
Venue: Mapfre Stadium (Columbus).

Whilst Columbus Crew are in 4th place in the Eastern conference and have a six point safety net for the play offs their form is amongst the worst of the conference. They have lost 4 games from their past five with their only win coming against Real Salt Lake a few weeks back.

The team is experiencing their worst form of the campaign and back at home they will want to try and reverse this.

However they have just 1 win at home in their last four games although this hasn’t been because of losses but because of draws, what is clear is that the team need a win to boost confidence.

Orlando City ended a 4 game losing streak when they beat Toronto FC in their last game. It was a big win for the side who also play in the same conference as Columbus Crew.

Orlando are having a poor season where they are in 9th place and are 8 points behind their hosts.

History resides with the Crew for this game and they are at home. They have been very good this season if we take out the last month.
