USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Friday, 23 July 2021
Kick-off at 0:30 UK/ 1:30 CET,
Venue: Exploria Stadium (Orlando).
Orlando City has been struggling in MLS to stay within the top three on the table. They will lock horns with Philadelphia Union on Friday for the three points at Exploria Stadium. With a game in hand, the host can move above them on the table with a win here.
The Lions have been winless in the recent three fixtures in the campaign with two defeats in it. The home team has picked up 22 points from six wins and four draws in their 13 attempts until now. They will return home on the back of a 1-1 draw on the road with Toronto FC last time out.
In the meantime, the Union is just a point ahead of the host in second place as it stands. The visitor broke their three-game winless run in MLS with a win in the previous encounter. They will visit on the back of that 2-1 win at home against the likes of DC United in the last league clash.
