Orlando City vs Houston Dynamo Lineups & Team News

Orlando City

The Lions’ display in MLS this season isn’t too shabby. After 23 league games played, Orlando City ranks 5th in the Eastern Conference. Despite the solid effort on their part, we just couldn’t pick the Lions as favorites in this Orlando City vs Houston Dynamo prediction. After all, the game on the 22nd of July is a Leagues Cup brawl and MSL momentum means nothing.

Predicted lineup – Stajduhar (GK), Carlos, Smith, Jansson, Santos, Araujo, Martins, Angulo, Pereyra, Ojeda & McGuire

Houston Dynamo

Coach Ben Olsen’s boys are on the verge of sinking down to 10th in the Western Conference. Houston Dynamo are currently ranked 9th, but Minnesota United have a postponed clash yet to be played. If won, Minnesota United might ruin Houston Dynamo’s plans.

Predicted lineup – Clark (GK), Escobar, Sviatchenko, Bartlow, Steres, Baird, Artur, Herrera, Iturre, Bassi & Ibrahim

Player to Watch: Duncan McGuire

With only 28 goals conceded, the Lions’ defense is certainly one of wonders this season. However, we believe it’s striker Duncan McGuire who deserves to be under the spotlight in our Orlando City vs Houston Dynamo predictions this week.

The 22-year-old up-and-coming finisher has been at his lethal best for coach Pareja in the 2023 Major League Soccer campaign. McGuire bagged eight goals for his team, and it’s fair to say he’s still in the race for the Golden Boot award at the end of the season. Will he help the Lions in the Leagues Cup match versus Houston Dynamo? He certainly has the required potential to do so.
