Our prediction for this MLS match:
Orlando City made a flying start to the season, but they do not seem to be on top of their game at the moment. The Lions suffered six consecutive defeats in MLS and they must be low on confidence ahead of Sunday’s football game against Montreal Impact. Orlando City conceded 11 goals in previous three league fixtures and we predict that they are going to struggle at the back against Montreal. The two teams met in Canada on June 14, with Montreal recording a 3-0 win over Orlando City. The Lions are hungry for revenge, but we do not believe that they are going to get one. The Canadians are undefeated in previous four meetings with Orlando City in the Major League Soccer, which is yet another reason why away win should be considered. A man to watch in the away team will be Ignacio Piatti, who has been in a splendid form of late.
