Montreal Impact vs Minnesota United
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday, 7 July 2019
Kick-off at 00:30 UK/ 01:30 CET
Venue: Saputo Stadium (Montreal).
Minnesota bounced back from their losing streak with two back-to-back wins and has a good enough chance to take one of the podium spots. They had a massive 7-1 win over Cincinnati, which put an end to their losing run, and then followed it up with a 3-1 victory over San Jose.
Unlike the last two occasions though, United is on the road this week and will face a stern test against one of the top prospects from the East, Montreal.
Impact is looking to limit the damage after their last game ended in a loss against Atlanta United. For sure the home advantage will play a role in helping them this match-day, but the fans have some concerns – namely, the team has looked comparatively better on the road, and have failed to recreate the form at home.
Montreal Impact vs Minnesota United Head-to-head (h2h)
- United won four of the last six matches.

- At this stadium, the hosts let in three or more goals in two of the last three encounters.
Montreal Impact vs Minnesota United Prediction
Montreal had won three of the last five games, and 17 of their last 23 at home. Going on, they were unbeaten in 20 of their last 23 attempts in front of the home crowd and registered two or more goals in three of the last four such battles.
On the other hand, Minnesota lost four of their last five away ties and six of the last eight on the road. Also, they conceded two or more goals in seven of their last ten games away from home.
On the basis of recent form, and factoring in the home advantage, Montreal should emerge victoriously. But it certainly won’t be an easy win.
Minnesota, disregarding their away woes, has scored three or more goals in their last four fixtures, and two or more in their last three encounters against this opponent. Moreover, Montreal failed to keep a clean sheet in nine of their last ten match-ups, and in their last four at home.
As things stand, it’s logical to expect both sides to net goals this Sunday.
