Columbus are without defender Sergio Campbell while Waylon Francis and midfielder Will Trapp are game-time decisions. Keeper Tally Hall is still out with a torn ACL while forwards Pedro Ribeiro and Martin Paterson will also miss, the former of which is out 2-3 months. Midfielders Lewis Neal and Tony Cascio, who missed Orlando City's game last weekend, could return to the lineup.

Background

Columbus had a tough two game road trip, first out to the west coast before a trip to Foxborough, both of which they earned a point in. Orlando City are in the middle of a 2-game road trip having already beaten Portland last weekend. Orlando City are currently 3rd in the East, 3 points off the top while Columbus remain on the outside looking in but a game in hand on the clubs above them, whom they sit 1 point off of them.


Head-To-Head

Columbus enter the game with only one win in their opening 6 matches, a 2-0 win against Toronto at home. This is the first time the two teams are meeting in their franchise histories.


Striker Kei Kamara has 3 of Columbus's 5 goals so far this season, 2nd in the Orlando City have now scored 6 goals this season, with Kaka contributing to half of them. #1 overall draft pick Clye Larin is also on the Orlando City scoresheets now after scoring in the 2-0 victory at Portland.
Prediction: The Crew look to have only gotten worse after last season's finish in the final playoff spot. I don't expect much from them this season.
Columbus 1-2 Orlando City
