Only one official match has been played between these two and it resulted in a 2-2 tie. Two years have passed, but the sides remain equally good.

Orlando City team news and form: Winless Lions hit new low

After four Major League Soccer matches played, Orlando City have yet to record a first victory this year. We are convinced that they will do so sooner or later, but the game at Exploria Stadium is destined to result in a tie.

Predicted lineup: Gallese (GK), Santos, Jansson, Brekalo, Borhallsson, Ojeda, Smith, Lodeiro, Angulo, Muriel & McGuire

Player to watch: Sebastian Driussi

After a tremendous 2022 season in Major League Soccer, during which Sebastian Driussi managed to score 25 goals and scoop the top goalscorer award underneath Philadelphia Union’s Gazdag, the Argentine maestro had a rather disappointing 2023 campaign. Last year, Driussi scored ‘only’ 11 goals.

Driussi key for Austin

If our Orlando City vs Austin predictions succeed, it would be because Sebastian Driussi has made an impact on the game. He was on the bench last week, but we are sure that coach Josh Wolff will swiftly correct this error by adding him to his starting XI against Orlando City.
