Our prediction for this MLS match:
After sharing the spoils with Atlanta United at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Orlando City will be looking to return to winning ways in the MLS when they host New York City at their Exploria Stadium. The Lions have been producing splendid displays after the coronavirus break, and as a result, they are on the right track to book their place in the playoffs. You should bear in mind, though, that the likes of Rosell, Pereyra, Moutinho, Mendez, Gallese, Dwyer, and Akindele are all likely to miss the game for the hosts.
New York City, on the other hand, failed to extend their winning run to four games at the weekend, with the team losing 2-1 to New England Revolution at home ground. The visitors are eager to get back on course in MLS, but beating Orlando City on the road is easier said than done. Since New York City have some injury worries as well (Heber, Moralez, Zelalem), we are tempted to put our money on draw.
