Montreal Impact vs LA Galaxy
2018 Major League Soccer
Date: Monday, 21 May 2018
Kick-Off at 20:00 UK / 21:00 CET
Venue: Stade Saputo, Montreal.

Both Montreal Impact and LA Galaxy look to be sliding down their respective Conference standings coming into their head to head clash set to drop the curtain on the Matchday No 12 in MLS. Remi Garde’s side lost four out of last five league ties and they have obvious issues with the efficiency in the final third coming into Monday fixture against Galaxy.

The hosts drew a blank in each of back-to-back losses to Chicago Fire and Philadelphia Union. They fell down to 9th place in the Eastern conference standings being eight points short of New England in sixth. Can the clash with fellow strugglers LA Galaxy be the turning point for the hosts who are desperate to shift their fortunes around in order to at least keep the minimum hope for the playoffs.

Montreal Impact vs LA Galaxy: Head-to-head

Draw was the most frequent of the outcomes in the history of head to head encounters between these two sides, happening on three occasions in six matches.

Montreal won one of these six, while LA Galaxy notched two wins in the process.

LA Galaxy won last term’s tie at Stubhub Center (2-0), but they’ve never defeated Montreal away in Canada.

Montreal Impact vs LA Galaxy: Prediction

Galaxy entered the season with high expectations after signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic who made an immediate impact netting a brace on the Californian debut. Nonetheless, things have gone completely wrong for the Sigi Schmid and his men of late as Galaxy lost four consecutive matches ahead of this trip to Montreal.

The German manager has huge issues with the list of injured players as he can’t count on services of dos Santos brothers. The defensive line is literally non-existent as LA conceded as many as three goals in each of last three defeats to New York RB, Houston Dynamo and Dallas. This will thus be a fantastic chance for the hosts to boost up their confidence by netting two or more goals past one of league’s weakest defensive lines. Montreal to net two or more goals is priced up at 1.80.
