This Thursday sees Orlando go head to head with MON at Exploria Stadium – Kick-off 2:30am GMT.

This clash sees fourth placed Orlando, welcome seventh placed MON to Exploria Stadium.

This season’s Major League Soccer campaign, has so far seen Orlando City achieve 45 points

With Orlando having secured all three points on their two previous outings, James O’connor’s men will doubtless be looking to retain their run after this fixture.

Orlando’s League position speaks for itself, as they continue their rich vein of winning form. Their last win, was the 2nd in a row. With 45 points, they are established in fourth in the League having won 12 fixtures, drawn nine games, and lost eight matches.

Given MON’s form at this time, it will be a significant challenge for them to overturn Orlando’s home record. They have won eight games, drawn four matches, and lost two meetings so far this season. The prospects of a positive result for MON are concerning for the visitors.

A win in this fixture, would take Orlando City’s points from 45 to 48, so far this season.

Montréal’s Major League Soccer season, has so far seen them gain 41 points, going into this game

MON come to this game on the back of a 2-2 home draw against Philadelphia Union at Stade Saputo.

They currently sit in seventh place, with a total of 41 points having won 11 fixtures, drawn eight meetings, and lost 10 matches.

MON now travel, knowing that their current away form is woeful. So far this season they have won three fixtures, drawn four matches, and lost seven fixtures matches on the road.

Winning this fixture will see Montréal on 44 points.
