Vancouver Whitecaps vs Orlando City: Preview and Predictions

Vancouver Whitecaps vs Orlando City
Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 10th June 2018
Kick off at 00:00 UK/ 01:00 CET
Venue: BC Place (Vancouver).

From a psychological standpoint Vancouver Whitecaps win over Colorado Rapids at the weekend was a huge one. The reason is that it positioned the team in the top 6 but also it ended a run of 4 games where their matches had all ended in draws. Those were exciting games where Vancouver scored 11 goals and if one positive thing can be said about the club is that they find it easy to score.

They come into this game 8 points behind the leaders and 6 points behind an automatic qualification place and whilst their form has not been brilliant they have not lost for the past 6 weeks. They are unbeaten at home for 4 games in a row.

Orlando City in the Eastern conference might be in 6th position but on form they have had a nightmare few weeks that has included 4 losses in a row. They have slipped 10 points behind the leaders but despite their poor form they still have a good chance to finish in the play offs, although they must correct their form.

Away from home they have won 2 from their 5 games and lost three. They come into this match having lost their last two matches on the road.

Vancouver Whitecaps vs Orlando City Predictions

Vancouver are clearly the team to back here, they would have taken a confidence boost with their win last week and now they are at home against a team in very poor form. Orlando’s form may pick up but if it does it will be at home and not away.
