Kick-off at 01:00 UK/ 02:00 CET
Venue: Audi Field (Washington).

Points at stake for DC United and Orlando City when they lock horns at the Audi Field in Washington this Sunday evening.

DC United are sitting at the foot of the Eastern Conference, but they played 5 games less than most of teams in the division. Besides, the team played just 5 of their 19 games this season at home. So, they have the potential to cancel out the 12 points gap with the top six if those matches are used wisely.

United drew Montreal 1-1 last week and are now unbeaten in 2 games. The previous a 2-1 home win against Colorado Rapids.

Orlando City are on a miserable run of form and are coming on the back of a 3-3 home draw with New England. They lost 10 of the last 12 games and their gap with the foot of the table is 5 points.

The away form of Orlando leaves another sorry picture with the team losing 8 games on the trot. Also, they are the worst defense after conceding 28 goals in the process.

DC United vs Orlando City Prediction

I still don’t see Orlando finding a way back from their misery. They are scoring goals and this is alright, but their defense is easily breach-able.

Coming to DC after conceding an average 3.5 goals/game in the last 8 outings, Orlando are looking at another defeat on Sunday.
