Montreal Impact vs Portland Timbers
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Thursday, 27 June 2019
Kick-off at 00:30 UK/ 01:30 CET
Venue: Saputo Stadium (Montreal).
Montreal is trying their best to take the pole spot in the East, but Philadelphia is giving them a tough fight in that regards. Their undoing has been their defense, with them conceding 28 goals so far from their 18 matches. Only the two bottom-most squads have let in more goals than them.
Their last tie was against the Sounders at home, and the team scripted an inspirational comeback after trailing for a goal even in the 74th minute. The two goals which came in the space of four minutes settled the tie in the hosts’ favor.
The Timbers are at the extreme end of the Western table, but they have three games in hand, and that has played a significant reason in them being placed at the bottom. Their last clash saw them taking on Houston, and it ended in a huge win for the side.
One after another, four goals were slotted in by the victors, and the final three goals came in the space of just 14 minutes.

Montreal Impact vs Portland Timbers Prediction
The Timbers are on a three-match winning run, and was unbeaten in eight of their last ten games. Of these seven were wins. The team scored four or more goals in their last two fixtures, and two or more in their last five. On the road, they avoided a loss in six of their last seven and slotted in two or more goals in five of their last seven attempts.
Montreal, meanwhile, is going through a bit of a slump. They were winless in four of their last six match-ups, and in three of their last five at home. As such, count on the Timbers to keep their momentum going in efforts to raise themselves from the bottom tier.
Coming to goals, understand that the Impact is one of the best teams in their conference, and has the additional home advantage. They also found the back of the net in 20 of their last 23 home games and will be keen to keep their assault on the top position alive.
As such, expect both sides to find goals this week.
