Montreal Impact vs Orlando City
Major League Soccer 2016 (USA)
Date: Thursday; 8 September 2016
Kick-off: 00:30 UK / 7:30 pm Eastern Time
Venue: Stade Saputo, Montreal.
Montreal Impact ended their three match win-less run with a 1-0 away win at Toronto on 27th August. This also helped them stay inside the play-off zone as they currently occupy 5th position in the Eastern Conference table. Their 37 points means they are at a 5 point distance from DC behind them and a considerable 7 point gap with their Wednesday’s opponent Orlando City.
Orlando City were four matches without a win before their 2-1 home win against Eastern Conference leaders New York City FC. The Lions have managed just 6 wins from their 26 matches so far this season and they must find some consistency if they are to make a final push to finish inside the play-off zone.
Montreal Impact vs Orlando City: Head-to-Head
- The teams had met on 4 occasions so far, and Orlando lead the head-to-head record with 2 wins, 1 draw and a defeat.
- Orlando City earned a 2-0 at home against Montreal on May 2015, in the first of the three match series for the 2016 MLS season.
- Montreal are unbeaten in the two meetings against Orlando with a win in their latest meeting on June 2015 and a draw on the previous meeting.
Montreal Impact vs Orlando City: Prediction
Montreal Impact have a good record at home as they are unbeaten in 10 of the 13 matches this season. While two of those three wins have come inside their last five matches, against a strong New York City and a struggling Chicago Fire. On the other hand, Orlando City have a terrible away record this season as they are without a win in their last 11 matches on the road. Their last four away matches is a draw, which also means they are capable of getting out with a point from difficult fixtures.
Orlando City FC have conceded a minimum of 2 goals in 11 of their 13 away games this, while Montreal have failed to score only twice at home all season. So this one could see both teams scoring at least once.
The safest bet for this match is to back the home side on a double chance, but the recommended bet is to go with the goal markets.
