Orlando City vs Columbus Crew
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 14 July 2019
Kick-off at 00:30 UK/ 01:30 CET
Venue: Orlando City Stadium (Orlando).
Columbus is the only squad in the West to not have a win to their name in the last five match-days. They also lost their last four games in the MLS.
Going on, they have been nothing but a disaster on the road, with seven of their eight such fixtures ending in losses. They have also recorded the least number of goals in these games, returning a rate of almost 0.5 goals per fixture.
Opponents Orlando meanwhile is trying hard to get into the playoffs, and yet it’s proving to be a little bit out of their league. They are able to post wins every once in a while, but for the life of them, they cannot keep their momentum alive.
Considering the team has an opportunity to take on one of the worst in the MLS, and backed by the home advantage, fans hope for a favorable result.
