Team News

Orlando City
Atlanta United
  • Injuries and suspensions are taking a toll on Orlando City, as a total of seven players could be missing for Friday’s game against Atlanta. Sacha Kljestan and Dom Dwyer are both one yellow away from suspension.
  • Kljestan, who’s one of Orlando City’s most influential players, is a doubt with a right ankle injury. The combination of his injury with the chance of a suspension means that he’s unlikely to start. However, he could feature.
  • Dom Dwyer was on the scoresheet again last time out in a heartbreaking last grasp defeat to D.C. United. He’s now scored in 3 consecutive games, so expect him to be featured in any of Orlando’s attacking threats.
  • There’s no fresh injury news for Atlanta, as they miss the same four players from the last game.
  • Only Michael Parkhurst has to tread carefully as he is one caution away from suspension.
  • Expect the dangerous trio of Hector Villalba, Miguel Almiron, and Josef Martinez to remain in the starting line up. All three were on the scoresheet in the win versus Columbus.

Prediction

  • Atlanta United are top of the league and the top scorers in MLS (53 goals). They have won three and drawn two of their last five matches.
  • Orlando City is sitting level in last place in the Eastern Conference. They have one point to show for their last five games.
  • Of the three times these two sides have faced off, Atlanta has won all of them and two of the games have been in Orlando. Expect that trend to continue Friday.
