Our prediction for this MLS match:
After sharing the spoils with Toronto at BMO Field, New York Red Bulls will be aiming to return to winning ways in the Major League Soccer when they host Orlando City at their Red Bull Arena. The Metros aim to regain their spot in top six in the Eastern Conference, and we are positive that they will go for a win in Monday’s football match. Experienced duo Jozy Altidore – Michael Bradley remains in the recovery room for the hosts.
The Lions, on the other hand, are enjoying a very successful season. Orlando City are on the right track to book their place in the Eastern Conference playoffs, but they can’t afford any complacency in the remainder of the season. Moutinho, and Dwyer are both sidelined with injury, but Mendez returns to contention after representing Ecuador in the 2020 FIFA World Cup qualifiers. Anyhow, away win should be considered as Orlando City are more of a team than New York Red Bulls.
