Nippert Stadium sees Sunday action as Cin take on Orlando – 2:30am GMT.

Orlando (fourth), travel to Nippert Stadium with high expectations, as they take on fourteenth placed Cin.

It’s 20 points so far for Cincinnati this season, going into this game

Yoann Damet will have impressed upon his team the importance of getting a positive result out of this game, following two successive defeats. First it was Toronto FC and then New York Red Bulls, however this is something that their opponents will be aware of going into this fixture.

Cin need to get out of the losing habit, with eight recorded in the last nine matches. With 20 points, they currently sit fourteenth in the League having won four matches, drawn eight meetings, and lost 15 games.

When Cin host Orlando, they will do so on the back of one victory and five draws on their own ground.

Cincinnati will have 23 points if they manage to secure a victory.

This season’s Major League Soccer campaign, has so far seen Orlando City achieve 42 points

Orlando will take a huge positive from their recent 2-1 win against D.C. United at Exploria Stadium.

Suffering four losses in six games is a terrible run of form for any club, James O’connor’s Orlando will know this and will be hopeful of turning it around. Their position is fourth in the League, and they have 42 points having won 11 games, drawn nine meetings, and lost eight matches.

Orlando’s away record is remarkable and poses a significant threat to Cin. In the 14 games they’ve played on the road this season, they have so far won three games, drawn five meetings, and lost six fixtures.

Victory for Orlando City would take their points tally to 45 so far this season.
