Our prediction for this MLS match:
Buoyed by back-to-back wins over Montreal and Nashville, Orlando City will look to retain second position in the Eastern Conference when they take on New England Revolution on Sunday morning. The Lions have been in a fine form of late and it is no wonder the bookies see them as favourites to beat the Revs in front of home fans. Both Adam Grinwis and Favian Loyola are sidelined with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the home team.
The Revs, on the other hand, aim to recover from a 2-1 loss to Columbus Crew. As both sides should be happy with one point from Sunday’s clash, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. All Damian Rivera, Brandon Bye, Henry Kessler, Dylan Borrero, and Maciel are out of contention with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the away team.
Highlighted Team (Orlando City):
Orlando City are a member of the Eastern Conference in Major League Soccer. The Lions have been participating in the major league since 2015 and they host their rivals at Orlando City Stadium. The venue was opened in February, 2017 and the construction of the stadium cost $155 million. Orlando City finished the 2015 MLS season in seventh place in the Eastern Conference and they failed to make it to the play-offs in the 2016 season as well (8th place).
Brazilian ace Kaka is undisputedly the club’s most famous player and the former Real Madrid and Milan man became the highest-paid player in MLS history. His base salary was $6.6 million per year and it has to be noted that the Brazilian superstar found the net on his Orlando City debut against FC Dallas (friendly). Orlando City’s home kit is violet, while they wear white and violet shirts and white socks on the travels. The club’s official mascot is Kingston the Lion.
