Orlando City to Win

The Lions have proven themselves as tricky partners, showing remarkable tenacity at the back. They lack the finishing touch at the other end of the pitch, an area where Oscar Pareja would have had extra drills for Nani and Co. Despite their attacking profligacy, City will favour themselves at the Exploria Stadium given Cincinnati’s lack of flair. While Orlando are unbeaten in their last seven outings including friendly fixtures, Cincinnati have only claimed the three points on offer once in their last ten.

Total Goals Under 2.5

FC Cincinnati have conceded seven goals in their two MLS outings, providing the roadmap for Orlando to profit from their game plan. The hosts will be looking to make the most of their rivals defensive woes, whilst keeping their impressive defensive record intact. Both of Orlando’s first two fixtures have seen less than three goals and it is a trait that should continue as their forwards find their scoring boots early in the season.

Both Teams to Score: No

In their last six outings, the Lions have managed to keep a clean sheet in three of them. Cincinnati continues to be plagued by attacking inefficiency, whilst conceding goals at the other end of the pitch. It should be another combative encounter as Orlando look to dominate the proceedings to ensure they hold on to the points on offer. Both sides were involved in a club-friendly at the end of March and it was a low scoring affair with Oscar Pareja’s men keeping a clean sheet.

Orlando City vs Cincinnati Fixture Preview

Orlando City

Oscar Pareja has moulded the Lions into a tight unit. Their playing style is dominated by defensive proficiency, doing just enough to put their rivals on the back foot for a stake of the points. They held the impressive Sporting Kansas City to a 1-1 draw on the road and will be looking forward to the matchup at Exploria Stadium. Portugal and Manchester United legend, Nani was on the scoreboard against Kansas and remains the best attacking outlet.

FC Cincinnati

The Orange and Blue are headed by Manchester United legend, Jaap Stam. The defensive stalwart needs his side to live up to his name. However, it is their rivals showing the tenacity Stam had on the pitch. They will be looking to give a better account of themselves, especially after their 5-0 drubbing at the hand of New York City. Young Brazilian forward, Brenner, is available and will be the chief goalscoring threat for Cincinnati on Sunday night.
