Venue: Orlando City Stadium (Orlando).

Orlando will be the outsiders when they take on New York City in the Eastern conference. Orlando come into this match in 9th place on 22 points and have lost 4 of their last 5 matches. They are six points from a play-off place and need to start winning. At home they beat Toronto in their last game which was good as that ended a 3 game losing streak for the club.

New York City are in 2nd place and are chasing down Atlanta United with the gap now just at 4 points. The side are in great form having won their last 3 games in a row and are scoring goals. However it’s interesting to note that they have very poor form away from home having lost 4 from their last 5 games and have no wins on the road for 3 months. In fact they have won just 2 games all season.

Orlando City vs New York City: Head to Head

  • Home or away New York City has won the last 3 meetings.

  • The last 3 fixtures have only seen one team score.

Orlando City vs New York City Predictions

New York City are the better team, but Orlando are fighting for a play-off place and New York have a terrible record away from home.

Goals should come in this game but it looks certain if they do it will follow in the second half and this is our main bet for this game and the only one for a fixture that looks very unpredictable, the bookmakers think so too and that is why the prices are so open.
