Columbus Crew vs Orlando City 10/27/2021 Prediction and Match Preview

Columbus Crew are coming off a tough loss and they haven’t exactly been very stable lately, but have to win this one if they are to make the playoffs this season.

Columbus Crew (10 wins, 13 losses, 8 draws) are coming into this match after a terrible performance at home against the visiting Red Bulls.

They are now sitting at the 11th spot of the Eastern Conference with 38 points, 5 points behind the playoffs, with 3 matches to go. Failing to beat Orlando City would pretty much mean the end of their playoff hopes. Columbus have been mediocre at home so far (8 wins, 4 losses, 3 draws), and have won 5 of their last 6 there.

Columbus Crew vs Orlando City 10/27/2021 Prediction and Match Preview

Orlando City (12 wins, 8 losses, 11 draws) will surely be upset about their 2-2 home draw against New England. They took a two-goal lead by the 50th minute, but they fell apart in the later stages of the match, conceding two goals at the 81st and the 93rd minute for the final 2-2 draw.

Despite the frustrating result, Orlando are now unbeaten in their last 5 matches (2 wins, 3 draws). They are sitting at the 4th spot of the Eastern Conference with 47 points, scoring 45 goals and conceding 44 in the process.

They are just 4 points ahead of the last playoff spot and there’s a lot of teams vying for playoff tickets, so Orlando need a couple more points to mathematically ensure their presence in the postseason. They have been quite solid on the road, having the 3rd best away record in the Conference with 4 wins, 6 losses, and 5 draws. 

Columbus Crew vs Orlando City. Orlando City beat Columbus Crew by 3-2 at home earlier in the season, and that was their 5th consecutive win over this opponent.

However, they have won just 1 of their 5 away matches in this venue over the years (1 win, 3 losses, 1 draw). This is a very tricky match, and we are going to side with the Both Teams to Score Prop here.
