Orlando City win

Orlando are aiming for only their second home win of the season even if they have stayed unbeaten so far. This solo home victory came against strugglers Cincinnati. Yet, Orlando should be able to dispatch Toronto, who are not known for their away performances. Despite being solid against New York City, Toronto did not offer much in the offensive segment. Toronto have an excellent away record against Orlando, but Oscar Pareja’s men may come up on top in this match.

Total goals under 2.5

Despite Orlando’s positive start to the season, they are still finding it difficult to score. The absence of players like Alexander Pato does not help. In the last five league matches, Orlando have scored over 1.5 goals only once. Similarly, Toronto have scored over 1.5 goals in just one of the three away matches.

Half with most goals – second half

Orlando are yet to concede a goal in the first half of the match. The two goals conceded by Oscar Pareja’s team have been in the second half. Toronto also tend to concede more goals (six versus three) in the latter half.

Preview of Orlando City vs Toronto with Team News

Orlando City

Oscar Pareja would be relatively happy to have come out of the game against DC United with a victory, as Orlando were under pressure for most of the encounter. The team has been unable to build up a lead over other teams in the play-offs. This would be one of the biggest disappointments for Pareja along with the inability to get more goals out of his team – despite possessing flair players like Nani. Alexandre Pato, Oriol Rosell Argerich, and David Loera are out injured.

Toronto

Toronto are slowly improving after a poor start to the season. Armas is starting to understand his players more and this has been reflected in his team selection over the last two matches. The home win over Columbus gives Toronto a huge lift, but the team are trying to get their first away league win since October. Jonathan Osorio is doubtful for the game, while Alejandro Pozuelo, Erickson Gallardo, Julian Dunn, and Ifunanyachi Achara are missing for Toronto.
