Montreal Impact vs DC United
Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 2nd July 2017
Kick off at 00:00 UK/ 01:00 CET
Venue: Stade Saputo.
Montreal Impact and DC United took on each other in the knockout round of MLS Playoffs last year, but they share the rock-bottom of the Eastern Conference standings after the opening 17 rounds in this term of the competition.
None of the two sides will enter the game in high spirits following their mid-week’s failures.
Montreal lost the Canadian Championship final to Toronto 2-1 on the road (3-2 on aggregate) on Tuesday evening.
Mauro Biello will thus have a pretty tough task to boots up his team’s confidence after a horrendous run of five consecutive fixtures without a single victory.
The bright side for the Canadian expert is Montreal’s impressive run of form on the home patch where they claimed three straight wins prior to a 1-1 draw with Toronto in the first leg of the Canadian Championship final.
DC United extended their catastrophic streak on the road to four straight losses on Wednesday when they suffered US Open Cup elimination to New England.
Moreover, Ben Olsen’s men failed to score a single goal in each of the last three league matches away from home.
Montreal Impact vs DC United: Head to head
Montreal Impact have completely dominated this match-up over the last couple of years since they have not suffered a single loss to DC United in last seven of their head to head encounters.
The Canadians picked up five wins during the run and they will be clear favourites to make claim their fourth straight victory over the team from Washington.
Montreal Impact vs DC United: Prediction
This is a fantastic opportunity for Montreal Impact to bounce back and start a positive streak to escape the rock-bottom of the Eastern Conference standings.
The hosts definitely do not belong there and we see the home win as a massive banker at the odds of 7/10.
