Montreal Impact vs New York City FC Match Preview
Montreal Impact have kept up their great form in front of the home crowd early in the new campaign and now host New York City hoping for another episode in such a spell, breathing down the Eastern Conference pace-setters Philadelphia Union’s necks with 17 points to their name.
Impact have thus beaten New England (0-3) and Chicago Fire (1-0) with rock-solid defensive displays before anything else, as Remi Garde set up the things at the back and saw his men keep five clean sheets in the last six outings. They will now want to keep it up and put an end to a troubled streak in head-to-head clashes against the Pigeons.
New York City have been very tough to beat but still struggled to turn clashes their way, as they suffered just one loss in nine outings this term but still bagged just two wins along the way despite some more solid defensive displays of their own lately.
Pigeons have seen Orlando City snatch a point at Yankee Stadium last week, ending their streak of two wins in a row where they beat DC United (0-2) and Chicago Fire (1-0) in similarly narrow clashes. Heber has been leading the attacking line with two goals scored in his last two appearances, now promising a great challenge at Stade Saputo too.
However, we don’t see them snatching points on the day and we’ll now back Montreal Impact to show off in front of the home fans once again – as we go for a Home win at an enticing 6/5 with bet365.
We feel the home side will want to base such a success on a tough defensive display before anything else, as we now also stick with few goals in Montreal and Under 2.5 Goals FT at 23/20 with Paddy Power.
