Our prediction for this MLS match:
Orlando City will be looking to extend their winning run in MLS to three games when they host Columbus Crew at their Exploria Stadium. The Lions quickly bounced back from a 2-1 loss to Inter Miami, and, no doubt, the back-to-back wins over Atlanta United and Montreal Impact gave them a confidence boost. Even though Moutinho and Dwyer remain in the recovery room for Orlando City, home win should definitely be considered.
Columbus Crew, on the other hand, continue with their habit of producing much better showings at home than on the travels. The Black and Gold are on an eight-game winless run on the road, and given Orlando’s current form, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed. Dutch defender Vito Wormgoor remains on the sidelines with injury, but the 31-year-old is the only absentee in the away team.
