Montreal to win at odds of 1.73
Montreal Impact did not have a good week. First, the club lost by 2-1 to Columbus Crew at home, a stunning defeat given that Columbus had lost seven consecutive road matches prior. Then, Montreal went to San Jose and dropped a 3-0 Champions League match, a contest Montreal barely threatened in. Montreal have done this before, though. At times they’ve been dominant but other times they have struggled terribly. A return home to face some Canadian competition should help rejuvenate the club.
Vancouver meanwhile have struggled on the road. Vancouver did well to pull out a scoreless draw at San Jose but that seems to be their lone hope. The club did receive a boost in the return of Jay DeMerit but that only strengthens the defense. The attack needs to produce quite a bit more pressure on the road in order to have success.
Montreal have been dealt two poor defeats in the last several days but Vancouver’s poor road form will be a boost for Impact.
Montreal should take the victory.
