Major League Soccer continues with an exciting match, where D.C. United will host Orlando City at Audi Field Stadium in Washington DC.
Both teams come to this day eager to regain the path of victory that they have lost in recent games. D.C. United managed to salvage an agonizing victory in their final game, while Orlando City is coming off a draw. This game corresponds to week 5 of the MLS and will be played this Sunday, May 16, 2021.
How do D.C. United and Orlando City arrive?
The local team D.C. United is coming off a suffered victory in its last game against the Chicago Fire this Thursday with a 1-0 result. This result helped them climb the MLS Eastern Conference leaderboard to 5th place, but with one game more than several teams. In this game, D.C. United did not own the ball, as they only had 42% possession, and managed to create 12 chances to score, with only 4 of them shooting on goal. The game was somewhat slow, but with many fouls by both teams.
A victory by the team from the capital would put them in a very favorable position compared to the other teams in the conference.

For its part, Orlando City, with one game less, reaches this commitment after a 1-1 draw against NYC FC at home. This game is the third tie that Orlando City has in this MLS season, that is, of 12 possible points, they add 6 units of which come from 1 victory and 3 draws. While it is true that they are undefeated in the tournament, it is not the start that any team wants. Orlando City is currently tied with D.C. United in points, but one game behind them, so a win in this game would see them climb from 6th to, could be, their 1st place on the MLS Eastern Conference leaderboard.
