Orlando City vs Toronto FC
Major League Soccer
Date: Thursday, 6th July 2017
Kick off at 00:30 UK/ 01:30 CET
Venue: Orlando City Stadium.
Orlando City will host Toronto in one of the most interesting games on the day.
This will be the second in a row of tough away fixtures for last year’s MLS runners-up Toronto who will come in the game after a 3-1 loss to Dallas on the road at the weekend.
The Lions were off to a strong kick off to the new MLS campaign, but they ran on to a tough series of matches which caused the run of five consecutive outings without a single win.
This has been interrupted on Saturday evening when Jason Kreis’ men claimed a super important 0-1 win over Real Salt Tale at Rio Tinto Stadium thanks to a goal from Will Johnson.
The defeat to Dallas ended Toronto’s positive run and dropped them down to the second position on the East.
Greg Vanney will be hoping to build on some of the previous performances his team showed and bounce back right away to stay in touch with the Fire at the top of the standings.
Orlando City vs Toronto: Head to head
The Reds have entirely dominated this match-up historically winning five of eight H2H meetings with Orlando City. The Lions have no more than a single win at the same time.
The Eastern Conference rivals met each other in early May this year when Sebastian Giovinco led Toronto to a 2-1 win by completing a brace at BMO Field.
Orlando City vs Toronto: Prediction
The Lions are winless in last three home fixtures and they conceded three goals to Miami and Montreal Impact each in last two of their outings at Orlando City Stadium.
This will be the music to the ears of Jozy Altidore and Sebastian Giovinco as we see them exploiting the holes in the home team’s defensive line to the max on Wednesday evening.
