Orlando City vs Columbus Crew Preview & Picks


Orlando City only needed two games in the last round to eliminate Nashville as they secured two impressive 1-0 wins. 

Columbus Crew had a real battle on their hands as they secured a 2-1 series win over Atlanta United. 

  • City have won their last six in a row 
  • City beat Nashville in two matches in the last round 
  • Columbus Crew were beaten 4-2 in their last away game against Atlanta United
  • The Crew have not won either of their last two on the road (L1, D1) 

Head-To-Head


City are unbeaten in their last four meetings with Columbus Crew, winning three of these matches including a 4-3 win at home back in September. 

Orlando City Form 


Orlando City have been in impressive form this year, with the side finishing in second in the Eastern Conference with 18 wins, nine draws and seven defeats. 

Their strong form has continued into the playoffs, with City able to swat Nashville aside in an impressive Round One triumph as they secured a pair of 1-0 wins to knock their opponents out in double-quick time. 

Now, Orlando face a Columbus side that finished a place behind them in the standings but were soundly beaten 4-2 by Atlanta in their last away game. 

Columbus Crew Form 


Columbus Crew won the battle for third in the Eastern Conference as they finished on 57 points, two points clear of Philadelphia and New England in fourth and fifth respectively. 

In Round One, they were able to eventually beat Atlanta, but this did not come without some issues. A strong 2-0 win in game one was followed by a 4-2 loss on the road, making it two without a win away from home for the Crew. 

While Columbus did eventually win the series 2-1 following a 4-2 win at home, could their loss on the road prove a telling omen, with the side likely to taste defeat away from home in this pressure game? 

Verdict

With Columbus not in the best form on the road, I am backing City to secure a win as both sides find the back of the net.
