Orlando City SC and New England Revolution meet Sunday afternoon at the Orlando Citrus Bowl.
Orlando City SC looks to build on their impressive 2-1-2 start to the season. Orlando City SC is led by an aggressive offense that’s five goals in its last two matches and has three players with double-digit shot attempts. Orlando City SC may be the biggest surprise team in the MLS at the moment with such a fast start. Cyle Larin leads Orlando with three goals, Kaká has two assists and Kevin Molino has 11 shots. Defensively, Joe Bendik has come away with 15 saves on 21 shots faced. Orlando City SC have picked up points in nine straight regular season home games.
The New England Revolution look to keep adding up the points after a decent 1-1-4 start to the season. The Revolution are relying on their defense that’s allowed eight goals overall and two goals in their last three matches. If the New England Revolution can get things going offensively, these draws will start turning into victories. Diego Fagundez leads New England with two goals, Juan Agudelo has one assist and Teal Bunbury has 14 shots. Defensively, Bobby Shuttleworth has come away with 18 saves on 27 shots faced. The New England Revolution have won four of their last eight regular season road games.
The two meetings between these two teams resulted in a draw and a New England victory. The two matches have combined for seven goals. Orlando was shutout by New England, 3-0 back in September.
Orlando City has been very impressive on its home field and is going to want to make a statement to the rest of the Eastern Conference. The Revolution just don’t score enough to think they can get points from Orlando on the road. I’m taking Orlando in the victory.
