Monday at Audi Field, as D.C. host Orlando in the MLS.

Orlando (sixth), travel to Audi Field with high expectations, as they take on fourteenth placed D.C..

D.C. United have so far accrued 18 points in this season of the MLS

D.C. come to this game on the back of a 1-2 home loss against Montréal at Audi Field.

Also, league success is all about winning football matches, any way you can, so 12 losses in 18 matches would not make this a successful season for D.C. With 18 points, they currently sit fourteenth in the League. The breakdown for the team’s record is 0 wins, 0 losses and 0 draws.

Playing at home, D.C. have won three games, drawn two games, and lost six matches.

D.C. United will see 21 points so far this season, should they secure a win.

Orlando City’s MLS season, has so far seen them gain 30 points, going into this game

Orlando need a positive result from this game, if they are to move their season forward. Their last match resulted in a loss to Philadelphia Union, before that they drew away to Atlanta United, 1-1.

Also, with two draws in three fixtures, Orlando need to develop a strategy for getting over the line in games. With a sixth position in the league and 0 wins, 0 losses and 0 draws, they currently have 30 points in the League.

Orlando’s away record is remarkable and poses a significant threat to D.C. In the 11 games they’ve played on the road this season, they have so far won three fixtures, drawn six matches, and lost two games.

A win in this fixture, would take Orlando City’s points from 30 to 33, so far this season.
