Toronto FC will travel to the Exploria Stadium in Orlando with the intention of handing Orlando City their first loss of the year, but the home side will not make that an easy task, as they have talent up and down their roster.
Toronto FC come into this matchup with a 1-2-2 record and are coming off of a tough fought 1-1 draw against NYCFC, as they were able to capitalize on one of their 3 scoring opportunities and were able to frustrate NYCFC defensively.
TFC are playing an interesting 4-2-3-1, as they are holding Jozy Altidore back a bit playing in behind the striker and that has gone down with some mixed results, but could still be a good move if they can gain some chemistry, as they simply lack play makers.
Jacob Shaffelburg was an interesting signing for TFC, as he plays up front in front of Altidore and he was able to score the team’s only goal off of the bench in that game with NYCFC and TFC management will be hoping that gets him going.
Even though he is not flashy, one of the most important people on this team is still Michael Bradley who plays a holding midfield role and takes plenty of the set piece opportunities, so look for him to make an impact here if TFC are to have success.
Orlando really should be one of the favorites to win the MLS playoffs this year and one of the main reasons for that is their defense, as it has been rock solid so far this year only conceding twice in 5 games.
That is their main path to victory here, as TFC do not have a very strong defense and they should be able to be creative in the final third of the pitch in order to breakdown this TFC back line and put the ball in the back of the net on multiple occasions.
Although it did not look pretty, Orlando nailed their tactics in their last matchup with DC United, as they scored early and immediately parked the bus, from that point they only allowed 1 shot on net in what was a masterful defensive performance.
I think this game is much more open, as Orlando City will know that they can beat this TFC defense with talent like Nani and Joao Moutinho, so look for them to play quick and look to strike early here.
Free Toronto FC vs Orlando City MLS Prediction:
MLS results can be all over the place, and therefore it is often not advised to jump on big favorites, but I think Orlando is in such a good spot here that they really should be getting the job done. TFC are still trying to figure out which formation is going to work for them, and frankly, who their starting 11 is going to be, so I can see Orlando taking advantage and cruising to a pretty easy victory with a scoreline of about 3-0, as I also think they will be able to shutout TFC.
