  • Key Stat

  • Expert Verdict

Orlando City

Orlando CityOrlando City Team News, Updates and Facts

Orlando City look to defend one of the strongest home records in the league, an unbeaten run dating back for their last 16 games, when New England Revolution visit this weekend. New head coach Jason Kreis will be watching with interest here, after Kevin Molino and Cyle Larin scored to give the Lions a 2-2 draw at Columbus Crew last time out.

One of the longest injury lists in MLS is easing but Antonio Nocerino will miss out again, although Brek Shea may be fit to return. Pedro Ribeiro and Harrison Heath remain on the sidelines. A run of six winless games has seen Orlando City slip behind New England in the Eastern Conference.

Orlando City likely XI:

Bendik, Hines, Boden, Mateos, Alston, Molino, Carrasco, Ceren, Baptista, Barry, Larin.

New EnglandNew England Team News, Updates and Facts

New England extended their unbeaten run to four matches with a 1-0 victory over Chicago Fire last weekend and they now sit in sixth place in the Eastern Conference, with plenty of time remaining to force their way into the play-offs, although they have only won one in 11 away.

Forwards Charlie Davies, Juan Agudelo and Femi Hollinger-Janzen are all missing through injury, however, with an unchanged team from last weekend's victory quite possible here.

New England Revolution likely XI:

Shuttleworth, Goncalves, Woodberry, Farrell, Tierney, Watson, Nguyen, Rowe, Caldwell, Kamara, Bunbury.

Orlando City vs New England Head-to-Head Stats

Orlando City have not beaten New England Revolution in any of the four meetings between the teams, suggesting the edge could be with the visitors for this clash. 

However, three of those matches have ended in a 2-2 draw, with New England only able to win once against Orlando City, a 3-0 home win around a year ago.

Orlando City v New England Revolution: Prediction

A poor away record for New England and strong home results for Orlando City appear to point in one direction for the likeliest result here, but Orlando City have found life tough in MLS of late, whereas Revolution look to be a team on the rise. An away win might be pushing it given New England's struggles on the road, but a draw is certainly possible for Jay Heaps and his men.

Orlando City v New England Revolution: Betting Tips

Odds of 7/5 on a home win seem to give Orlando City the benefit of the doubt despite their sloppy performances in the last few weeks, while the visitors can be backed at a very tempting price of 15/7 here. However, perhaps the best value in the match odds market is the 13/5 on the draw.

Given three of the last four meetings between Orlando City and New England have ended 2-2, it is well worth a look at yet another 2-2 on the correct scores market, especially at odds of 12/1, while both teams to score is also favoured, even at a low price of 4/7.
