Seattle Sounders FC vs Orlando City
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Thursday, 16th May 2019
Kick-off at 03.30 UK/ 04.30 CET
Venue: CenturyLink Field (Seattle).
Seattle, with a game in hand, is in the third spot of the Western Conference. Considering that LA Galaxy, in the second position, lost their last three games in a row, the former has a chance to make a claim to the runner-up spot.
Seattle really is one of the top-performing sides in the West, as per most major stats. They have scored the second-most number of goals and conceded the third-least.
Orlando, meanwhile, was winless in four of their last five match-days and is struggling at the bottom of the Eastern table. They have lost almost half of their league ties so far, and have one win on the road in the last eleven months.
Seattle Sounders FC vs Orlando City Head-to-head (h2h)
- Seattle holds a 100% unbeaten record against Orlando.
- Except for one drawn game, Seattle would have boasted of a 100% winning record in official encounters.
- Orlando has never kept a clean sheet against this team.
- Seattle scored two or more goals in every official match bar one.
Seattle Sounders FC vs Orlando City Prediction
Orlando is one of the worst performing sides on the road. In fact, the team has recorded a single away win in the last eleven months. The stretch also included an eleven-game losing run away from home. On the other hand, Seattle is unbeaten in their last seven home ties and won five of them as well. Keep in mind that this streak would been even longer if not for a loss in a friendly.
Factoring out that condition, Seattle has not lost at home in the last ten months. On top of that, consider that Seattle has a 100% unbeaten record against Orlando. The record would have been a 100% winning one if not for a single draw.
In every sense of the word, the Sounders are the favorites in this tie and expect a strong showing from them.
