Orlando City pulled a shocker by beating Philadelphia away from home last week. They were in dire need of some positive results after winning just 1 of their 4 matches in the new campaign. That win was their second of the season, and the other matches ended in 2 draws and 1 loss. In this match, Orlando welcome Nashville to the Exploria Stadium, where they lost the last time against Charlotte FC. Nashville on the other hand have dropped 6 points in their last 2 matches, after losing both against New England Revolution and FC Cincinnati by 1-0.Grab Your Signup Bonus!
Orlando City (WLDDD)
Orlando City’s record doesn’t look good even with the latest win against Philadelphia Union. That was their only win in their last 5 matches in all competitions, considering their CONCACAF Champions League exit. In the MLS, they have just 2 wins, 1 loss and 2 draws so far. However, credit goes to the team for their performance against Philadelphia. Orlando were rewarded with 2 goals in the 2nd and 9th minute. Andrew Perea scored for Philadelphia in the 17th minute, but Orlando City fought hard to hold down the narrow lead till the end. Surprisingly, they were the better side in terms of possession, with 53%, and also registered 4 shots on target and 4 corner kicks by the end of regulation time.
Orlando City are in 4th spot in the eastern conference, with 8 points from 5 matches and a goal ratio of 5:4.
Team Streaks:- without a clean sheet (4), less than 2.5 goals (5/7), both teams scoring (4/5), less than 10.5 corners (5/7).
Nashville are also coming into this match with a very poor record, after losing two matches in a row. They had earlier won two matches in their opening three games and recorded 1 draw in between, but then they were not able to win in their last 2 matches. Their last game ended in a 1-0 defeat against FC Cincinnati at home. Both teams struggled to make any impact in the first half, but early in the second half, Brandon Vazquez scored the only goal for the visitors. Nashville were the better team in possession, as they had 67% possession, but they had the fewer shots on target (3) than the visitors.
Nashville are ranked 6th in the eastern conference, with 7 points from 5 matches and a goal ratio of 4:2.
Team Streak:- less than 2.5 goals (5/5), less than 4.5 cards (7/9).

Expert Betting Tips
There’s nothing really interesting about both teams, despite Orlando’s heroics against Philadelphia Union. Orlando are not a super team, so we won’t put so much expectations on them just yet. However, it is more difficult for Nashville to pull off a win here, considering their recent form and they are playing away from home. So, I can count on Orlando City to atleast pull off a draw in this match.
