Columbus Crew vs Montreal Impact
Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 25th June 2017
Kick off at 00:30 UK/ 01:30 CET
Venue: MAPFRE Stadium.
Columbus Crew are finally back to MAPFRE Stadium where they are going to host Eastern Conference rivals Montreal Impact this weekend in the Matchday No 18.
The Crew was not in mid-week’s action which will be their massive edge ahead of the meeting with Montreal.
Gregg Berhalter will be desperate to see his men bouncing back after three consecutive losses in all competitions (all on road).
The American manager has a string attacking lineup in the likes of Justin Meram, Ola Kamara and Federico Higuain, but Columbus (much like the rest of the teams in MLS) just fails to deliver away from home.
Montreal are undefeated in last five matches in all competitions, but they could easily see an end to this pleasant run this weekend.
The reason lies in the fact that Mauro Biello will likely rest his star men for the second leg of the Canadian Championship final with Toronto (the first leg ended 1-1 at their Stade Saputo).
Columbus Crew vs Montreal Impact: Head to head
The Crew came out victorious from a five-goal thriller back in mid-May.
Justin Meram played the best match of the season leading his team to a 2-3 win in Quebec by completing a hat-trick.
Columbus Crew vs Montreal Impact: Prediction
Columbus will have a nice chance to take advantage of the situation and stay among top six teams on the East with a victory over a mixed-lineup of Montreal’s.
Justin Meram was especially inspired in May and we must see the value in backing the Iraqi striker to score anytime at the odds of 6/4.
Columbus Crew vs Montreal Impact: Bet Tips
