MLS Picks: July 04

By Achyut Dixit

The MLS matchday action extends to July 4th. We have four games that will take place tonight with teams jockeying for playoff positioning.

Orlando City, who will be coming off the heartbreak of getting knocked out in the U.S Open Cup, are set to host DC United at the Exploria Stadium. The Lions sit sixth in the Eastern Conference with 25 points in 17 games.

DC United is at the rock bottom of the MLS table, collecting a mere 14 points in 15 games. D.C United haven't won a game since May 7th, and have lost five of their last seven games in all competitions. The four time MLS Cup winners are going through a disastrous phase, and nothing is going their way.

The appointment of Chad Ashton as interim manager in April hasn’t resulted in the success that the team had been hoping for. They have conceded the third most goals in the conference and the floodgates specially open when they are playing away, conceding ten goals in four games on the road. 

There’s still some light at the end of the tunnel for DC United. The US Capital team has a Designated Player slot opened up after the sale of Edison Flores to Atlas in the Mexican top-flight (Liga MX). DC United have used the money from Flores sale to buy Chilean winger Martin Rodriguez from Altay in the Turkish Super Lig.

For Orlando City, Mason Stajduhar is not expected to make the squad list today as he continues to deal with a jaw injury. DC United will be without Andy Najar, who will miss action because of yellow cards accumulation. Moses Nyemen, Chris Odoi-Atsem (ankle) and Theodore Ku-Dipietro are also expected to miss because of their respective leg injuries.

We are expecting some goals in this game as Orlando themselves are not great at the back, but we also see them outsourcing their opponents for this one.
