Both teams to score at Orlando City vs Philadelphia Union 2/3 for Friday’s MLS showdown
Market: Both teams to score
Odds: 2/3 @ 888sport
Two sides who find themselves leading the chase at the top of the Eastern Conference, Orlando will host the Philadelphia Union in the early hours of Friday.
Starting with the hosts, while Orlando might have enjoyed what was a stellar start to the 2021 campaign, they are in the midst of what has been a worrying run of form. In their 13 MLS matchups so far this season, they have recorded six wins, four draws and three defeats, scoring 21 and conceding 13 in return. Managing to muster themselves a points tally of 22, The Purples open Friday’s fixtures sat third in the Eastern Conference and just a single point adrift of this week’s guests. However, last seen playing out a 1-1 draw against Toronto on the road, Orlando have managed to pick up just a single point from their last three MLS matchups. Showing some recent issues at the back, it should also be noted that The Purples have seen each of their last four straight contests finish with both teams finding the net.
As for the visitors, managing to make what was a welcomed return to winning ways last weekend, Philadelphia will be desperate to build off of that result. In their 14 MLS matchups since opening the 2021 campaign, they have recorded six wins, five draws and three defeats, scoring 18 and conceding 13 in return. Mustering a points tally of 23, The Union open Friday’s fixtures sat second in the Eastern Conference and four points adrift of league leaders New England. However, last seen picking up a 2-1 victory against D.C. United on home soil, Philadelphia brought an end to their own three-match winless run. It should be noted, with this week’s guests seeing three of their last four MLS matchups finish with both teams finding the net, we’re backing a similar outcome here.
