Columbus Crew vs Montreal Impact
Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 21 July 2019
Kick-off at 00:30 UK/ 01:30 CET
Venue: MAPFRE Stadium (Columbus).
Columbus, along with Cincinnati, are the worst teams in the East. While the former is placed second from the bottom in the table, the latter does have two wins from the last three match-days and considering that Crew is the only squad in the conference who are winless in the last five league fixtures, they could be touted as the absolute worst of the lot.
Opponents Montreal have a comfortable position in the mid-table, but they have been facing some problems in recent days. In fact, if they had performed well in their last three league ties, they could have laid claim on a podium spot.
As such, Impact will be determined to put an end to their complacency, and get back to their winning ways.
Columbus Crew vs Montreal Impact Head-to-head (h2h)
- Impact won the last two games in a row.

- Five of the last six encounters at this venue saw the hosts failing to keep a clean sheet.
- Columbus failed to score in the last two match-ups.
Columbus Crew vs Montreal Impact Prediction
Crew is winless in their last seven matches and lost six of these too. They had failed to score in four of their last six games while conceding twice or more in nine of their last fourteen. At home, they are on a losing streak of four ties and let in two or more goals in five of their last seven fights, and in return scored a total of just one goal from the last three appearances there.
With the hosts going through this kind of a form, the top-tier Montreal will be in full swing to take advantage of this game. They also have the confidence of having performed well in the last several face-to-face clashes. Impact had won the last two such battles and kept clean sheets in both too.
Finally, with Montreal targeting a spot on the podium, we can count on them to rise up to this challenge and have a good fixture against this weaker opponent.
