Minnesota United vs Orlando City Prediction & Match Preview

Minnesota United vs Orlando City
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 18 August 2019
Kick-off at 01:00 UK/ 02:00 CET
Venue: Allianz Field (Minnesota).

Orlando is struggling to get into the playoff mix. At present, they are ninth in the Eastern table and has won just once in their last five league match-days. Also, their road form is a cause for concern, as they have avoided a win in their last four trips.

Minnesota, who are chasing the runner-up position in the West, could make use of this fixture, as their closest competitor is taking on Real Salt Lake, a much more tough job compared to this one. Coupled with the home advantage of United, where they have been just exemplary, things are looking pretty fine for the home fans.

Minnesota United vs Orlando City Prediction

The hosts of the day are one of the best in their conference and is a frontrunner to get placed in one of the podium spots. They have also reigned supreme in their home ties, with them losing just once, and recording four wins from their last five attempts.

Moreover, they have conceded the second-least number of goals in front of the home crowd and lost the best position in that list only due to the Timbers having played a much fewer number of fixtures.

Going on, against this opponent, they have a 100% winning record and have never conceded at this venue as well.

In addition, Orlando was winless in five of their last six match-ups, and in eight of their last ten as well. Also, on the road, they went winless in 18 of their last 22 tries.

As these stats obviously point out, a win for the hosts is our top pick.
