It’s a trip to Exploria Stadium for sixth placed Orlando on Thursday, as they take on ninth placed Atlanta.

With the MLS season well into its stride, Orlando City have managed to gain 42 points

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

Also, Orlando keep finding ways to win, having secured four victories in their last five matches is astonishing this season. They currently stand sixth in the League, with 42 points for a total of 0 wins, 0 losses and 0 draws.

When Orlando host Atlanta, they will do so on the back of seven victories and seven losses on their own ground.

Orlando City will have secured 45 points so far this season, should they secure a win.

Atlanta United go into this fixture with 36 points secured

Gonzalo Pineda will hope that success brings further success, as his side look for another win in a row. Their last two outings resulted in victories against Toronto FC and Portland Timbers.

Also, Atlanta’s League position speaks for itself, as they continue their rich vein of winning form. Their last win, was the 1st in a row. With a ninth position in the league and 0 wins, 0 losses and 0 draws, they currently have 36 points in the League.

Atlanta now travel, knowing that their current away form is woeful. So far this season they have won one game, drawn five meetings, and lost nine matches matches on the road.

A win in this fixture, would take Atlanta United’s points from 36 to 39, so far this season.
