Andrew Hughes thinks LAFC will beat Orlando on Sunday and help to land another weekend multiple in the process
“To make matters worse for the visitors, they will also go into this game without key defenders Lamine Sane and Scott Suter, and defensive midfielder Cristian Higuita.”
LAFC are enjoying a superb debut season in MLS, under the guidance of Bob Bradley. They are currently third in the Western Conference table, and the arrival of lowly Orlando offers a great opportunity to pick up another three points.
The Lions received a boost this week with the announcement of a new manager, but as Dave Farrar points out in his essential MLS Preview, it will take time for fan favourite James O'Connor to turn things round. Orlando have been poor defensively in recent games, and that can only be fixed with hard work on the training ground.
To make matters worse for the visitors, they will also go into this game without key defenders Lamine Sane and Scott Suter, and defensive midfielder Cristian Higuita. LAFC are unbeaten at home in seven games and they are likely to prove too strong for Orlando on Sunday.

England's victory on Friday has set up the last of three Twenty20 Internationals as the series decider and the tourists look the best bet. Virat Kohli's men came very close to defending a sub-par total on a good batting pitch last time, and it was only thanks to some last over heroics from Alex Hales that the home side came out on top.
Eoin Morgan's side have struggled against the Indian spinners in both games so far, and the return of Ben Stokes, while welcome, will not solve that problem. A second failure in a row for India's star-studded batting line-up seems unlikely, and I'll be backing them to clinch the series in Bristol.
Brisbane Broncos may be targeting a top four spot in the NRL, but they were made to work hard by Canberra Raiders last week, and I think they could struggle on Sunday in the absence of some of their key players.
Andrew McCullough, Corey Oates, Josh McGuire and James Roberts are all on State Of Origin duty, and although they have a good record against Gold Coast, this might not be the best time to meet them. The Titans have improved dramatically in the last two weeks, particularly in defence, and have pulled off back-to-back wins as they target a top eight spot. Back them to edge out the Broncos on Sunday.
