Crew SC begins faces Orlando on Saturday to begin stretch of three matches in eight days

 

COLUMBUS— Columbus Crew SC (5-13-2, 17 pts.) travels to face Orlando City SC (6-9-4, 22 pts.) at Exploria Stadium tomorrow, Saturday, July 13.The match begins at 7:30 p.m. ET and is set to be televised regionally on FOX Sports Ohio and streamed on FOX Sports GO, featuring Neil Sika, Dwight Burgess and Ashley Collins on the call. Coverage begins at 7:00 p.m. ET. Tomorrow’s match also airs locally on the radio in English on 97.1 The Fan and streaming online via “Listen Live” at 971TheFan.com, featuring Chris Doran broadcasting the contest. The club’s official website, ColumbusCrewSC.com, is set to stream Spanish-language audio broadcast with Juan Valladares behind the microphone. The match against Orlando City SC is the second of two regular-season meetings between the clubs in 2019 and begins a stretch of three matches in eight days for the Crew.

Less than two weeks after Columbus Crew SC’s 2-0 home loss to Orlando City SC, the Black & Gold (5-13-2, 17 pts.), who missed key cogs in June 29 meeting due to international duty, head south to take on an Orlando side that will be competing in its fourth match in 11 days as part of a larger six-match, 19-day stretch.

A win on Saturday would still see Columbus occupying the 11th spot in the Eastern Conference, though it would put the Black & Gold within striking distance of seventh-place Toronto FC, who currently sits just above the red line with 23 points.

Overall, Columbus’ success in Orlando remains even-keeled, as the Black & Gold are 2-2-2 in six regular-season matches at Exploria Stadium with a goal-differential of zero (11 GF, 11 GA). As even as the road fixtures have been, historically speaking, the Crew cannot rest on any defensive laurels as Columbus is one of two teams to concede 10-plus goals at Exploria Stadium.

All-time, Orlando is 29-26-22 at home since joining the League in 2015 and are 3-5-1 in MLS regular-season play at home in 2019, most recently falling 3-1 to the Philadelphia Union on July 3. Additionally, the Lions are on a two-match regular-season losing skid with the inclusion of a 1-0 loss to the LA Galaxy on May 24.

Individually, Orlando has four players with at least five goals each, led by early-season acquisition Nani, who leads the team with eight goals and seven assists.

Looking at this season’s scoring, Orlando’s 27 total goals lies in the middle of the pack, while both Orlando and Columbus fall towards the bottom of the League in chances created, with Orlando edging the Crew 159 to 153.

Come Saturday, Columbus eyes restitution as the Black & Gold look to break a four-match losing skid and prevent Orlando from a regular-season sweep for the first time since they joined MLS.

Orlando City won the first meeting on June 29, 2-0 in Columbus goals by Chris Mueller and Tesho Akindele in each half.
