FC Cincinnati are currently sitting eight, having managed 20 points from 15 games in the Eastern Conference of Major League Soccer.
FC Cincinnati will be keen to turn their fortunes around when they take on Orlando City in the Eastern Conference of Major League Soccer. Coming into this clash on the back of a three-game winless streak, the hosts will be hoping to end the barren run against another side struggling for consistency. In the table, Orlando City might be sitting ahead of their opponents, however, their run of form lately has been inconsistent. Hence, the upcoming match will hold a huge significance for both sides to regain their lost form.
The home side are winless in the last three games. After losing to New England and Montreal, they were able to manage only a draw in the last fixture against Philadelphia. The last time they won a game was against Chicago in mid of May. FC Cincinnati are currently sitting eight, having managed 20 points from 15 games in the Eastern Conference of Major League Soccer.
On the other hand, Orlando City are sitting higher up at the table by occupying the fourth spot. However, they have also struggled for consistency in recent games. In the last three games, they could only manage one win, one draw and a defeat. That victory came against Houston Dynamo in the last game. Orlando currently have 25 points from 16 games and are only two points shy of leaders New York City.
Both teams have a few injury concerns to deal with ahead of this clash. The hosts could well be without the services of Isaac Atanga and Calvin Harris following their leg injuries. One thing is clear for FC Cincinnati, they will definitely miss Alec Kann, while Ronald Matarrita is recovering from ankle surgery. It is not yet clear though who will replace the missing players for them. On the other hand, Orlando City could miss Mason Stajduhar, who has a jaw injury to deal with. Antonio Carlos and Silvester van der Water’s participation are also in major doubt due to their injury concerns.
FC Cincinnati possible line-up: Celentano, Blackett, Murphy, Hagglund, Barreal, Nwobodo, Medunjanin, Gaddis, Badji, Barreal, Vazquez
Orlando City possible line-up: Gallese, Ruan, Jansson, Schlegel, Moutinho, Araujo, Urso, Torres, Michel, Pereyra, Kara
