Philadelphia and Orlando City face each other for the fifth round of the MLS, seeking to overcome the defeats they suffered in the last round and get closer to the group of the best teams in the league.
Philadelphia, which will play at home, won both games in front of its fans and is motivated to make another good performance and conquer another victory in the Subaru Park stadium.
Orlando City has yet to win any points away from home, but has already won one game and drawn two playing in front of its fans. Against Philadelphia, Florida’s team will be tested again, and this time, fans expect the team to get a slightly better showing away from home.

Where Can I Watch?
Why Bet on Philadelphia?
The Philadelphia Union has an interesting mix of players from the most diverse countries in the world. Argentinians, Jamaicans and European players join the North Americans in the quest to form a strong, multicultural and competitive team.
Coach Jim Curtin, in charge of the club since 2014, saw his team defeated by Montreal in the last round, in a 5-goal game. On that occasion, the team was leading by 2-1 until Julian Carranza was sent off in the 69th minute, creating enormous difficulties for the team, which conceded two goals in stoppage time in the second half.
Hungarian Daniel Gazdag has been the highlight of the Philadelphia Union this season, helping the team defensively and scoring important goals, which resulted in victories for Philadelphia.
Why Bet on Orlando City?
Orlando City are five games without a win when you consider the MLS and the Concacaf Champions League. In 10th place in the Eastern Conference, City have won just one game but conceded just 3 goals in the 4 games they played.
If the defense hasn’t been so bad, the attack hasn’t done its job. With only 3 goals scored in these opening matches, Orlando City lost good opportunities to win the games it tied due to the inefficiency of its attackers.
The recent clashes between Philadelphia and Orlando favor the host team, which won 8 of the 19 games played between them.
Final Betting Analysis: Philadelphia vs. Orlando City
We have two somewhat traditional teams in the US facing off in a turbulent a mediocre start of the season. Philadephia may be feeling the aftermatch of that lost final last year, as they are one of the most competitive teams in the MLS that have been incapable of getting their hands on the big prize.
Orlando on the other hand had bad luck in the Concachampions draw and faced none other than the Tigres UANL of Gignac, who got the best of themselves on the visitors goal rule. These two teams will probably get to the post-season, however, they need results now. Seeing that the team from Florida is incapable of getting points as visitor’s go for a win for the Pennsilvanians.
If you put $100 into Philadelphia’s win, you could get $75 back for a total payout of $175.
