DC United are going to face Orlando City in the eight-finals of the US Open Cup. The hosts are the bottom placed side in the Easter Conference and they have picked up only ten points so far in the season.

However, United improved a bit lately as they picked up five points from the same number of games. Darren Mattocks and the lads have some troubles in finding the back of the oppositions’’ net while their defending should have been tighter.

Orlando City had a very good start, but they fell into severe results crisis as they lost six times in a row in MLS. Their defending awe awful lately as Jason Kreis’ side conceded 11 goals in the last three league games.

The only victory Orlando were able to snatch was the one in the previous round of this competition when Orlando City eliminated Miami United.

DC United v Orlando City: Prediction

Although the hosts are not playing very good, they are slight favourites in this one as Orlando City are totally out of the form. DC United should be able to take advantage of playing in front of their fans to book their place in the next round of the US Open Cup.

Both sides are playing very bad in the back and we might see both teams scoring in their head to head clash once again. In the last seven matches when home side was involved, the nets didn’t remain still.
