Houston Dynamo vs Montreal Impact
Major League Soccer
Date: Thursday, 6th July 2017
Kick off at 01:30 UK/ 02:30 CET
Venue: BBVA Compass Stadium.
Montreal Impact successfully recovered from losing Canadian Championship final to Toronto by seeing off the rock-bottomed team of the Eastern Conference DC United 2-0 on Saturday at their Stade Saputo.
They will have a very tough task to back up the fine display in mid-week when they travel to Texas to take on the fifth-placed team on the West at BBVA Compass Stadium.
The good news for the Canadians is that Dynamo have been on a poor run of form staying unbeaten in four consecutive MLS outings.
In Wilmer Cabrera’s defense, the team has had quite a challenging schedule over the last couple of weeks when they faced the likes of LA Galaxy, Dallas, Sporting KC and Colorado Rapids.
We fancy the Mexican striker Erick Torres, who has been in good touch lately, to increase his already large tally (12 goals so far in the season) and score anytime against Montreal at the odds of 8/11.
The Canadian manager Mauro Biello has huge troubles in finding the right formula to keep things tight at the back.
This is especially the case when Montreal play on the road where they conceded 12 goals during the negative run of three losses and two draws in last five matches.
Houston Dynamo vs Montreal Impact: Head to head
Montreal Impact have a horrendous record at BBVA Compass Stadium where they only managed to escape a defeat once in seven matches.
The visiting teams practically got nothing in the history of head to head meetings between the two sides since 11 of 12 matches saw home teams coming out victorious.
Houston Dynamo vs Montreal Impact: Prediction
This will be a nice chance for Dynamo to return on the winning ways by continuing the H2H trend.
Erick Torres will certainly have plenty of room to deliver up front considering more than obvious holes in Impact’s defensive line.
