Orlando City vs Columbus Crew – MLS Cup playoffs preview: TV channel, live stream, team news & prediction

Orlando City play host to Columbus Crew in the Eastern Conference semifinals of 2023 MLS Cup playoffs on November 25 at Exploria Stadium.

The trial run of the best-of-three series format has finally reached its conclusion, with single elimination games taking place from here on out in the postseason.

The Lions and Columbus kick things off in an entertaining battle in central Florida with two of the most entertaining sides in the league going head-to-head.

Orlando ground out two 1-0 victories over Nashville SC to reach the Conference semifinals, while the Crew prevailed in game three over Atlanta United to seal qualification to this round. Both teams have plenty of star players in their ranks, with the winning side advancing to take on either FC Cincinnati or Philadelphia Union in the next stage.

Forward Jack Lynn remains out of action as he’s on the road to recovery from a thigh injury suffered late last month. The 23-year-old should return to action in early December, with Orlando hoping to be in contention for MLS Cup at that time.

Orlando City predicted lineup vs Columbus Crew ( 4-2-3-1 ): Gallese; Thorhallsson, Schlegel, Jansson, Santos; Araujo, Cartagena; Torres, Pereria, Angulo; McGuire.

The Crew have no new injury concerns since their 4-2 triumph over Atlanta in game three, giving head coach Wilfried Nancy essentially a full strenght squad to work with.

Columbus Crew predicted lineup vs Orlando City ( 3-4-3 ): Schulte; Moreira, Camacho, Zawadzki; Gressel, Nagbe, Morris, Amundsen; Rossi, Hernandez, Matan.

Home field advantage is huge in regular season action, and it’ll be no different as the postseason really starts to ramp up. There’s a reason Orlando finished second in the Eastern Conference table, and they should come out on top in front of their home fans.

Prediction: Orlando City 2-1 Columbus Crew
