New England Revolution vs Orlando City
Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 14th October 2018
Kick-off at 0:30 UK/ 1:30 CET
Gillette Stadium, Foxborough.
The Revs are still in search of their first MLS title. Brad Friedel, the former US international and Tottenham player was appointed as their coach in early 2017. He was not able to make the club prepared to face stronger opponents.
The team is placed 8th in the eastern conference with 8 wins in 31 matches. Many of the 11 matches that ended as a draw could have been won if their defense stood firm.
The club from Boston has conceded in all their previous 4 matches in the league. Atlanta beat them 2-1 in their last game. Consolation goal by Juan Agudelo for New England came late in injury time.
Orlando City is at the bottom of Eastern Conference and is already out of even a top-10 finish by a long margin. James O’Connor-the head coach- is disturbed after his team presenting the worst performance by a team from the east.
The Lions looks like kittens in the light of their last 12 game winless-run. Last time they got three points from a game was at home in July against Toronto. They had a 6 game win streak from March to May, and then the downfall started.
Possession was scarce in their latest defeat to FC Dallas, due to their own inability to keep the ball. Towards the end of the game firing long shots was their tactics out of desperation mostly.

- Last match between them was in August this year in MLS. The score line read 3-3 at the end of 90 minutes.

New England Revolution vs Orlando City Prediction
Both the team are poor in defense, conceding goals in surplus.
The two are the worst teams in the league in discipline. Even though goals are hard to come by they are getting cards in excess.
Revs will have a home advantage over the modest Lions. The big cats may get a goal, considering the fact that both teams have scored in four of their last 5 meetings.
