Montreal Impact vs Real Salt Lake
Date: Thursday, 30 May 2019
Kick-Off 00:30 UK / 01:30 CET
Venue: Stade Saputo (Montreal).
Real Salt Lake are flying high coming into mid-week’s trip to Stade Saputo where they take on Canadian Montreal Impact in a very interesting 16th round tie in MLS.
Claret and Cobalt broke into the top-five in the Western Conference standings thanks to a fabulous three-win thread. They bagged eight goals along the way and allowed just one in last two ties with heavyweights Toronto and Atlanta United.
Can they keep it going against out-of-form opposition on the Canadian soil?
The hosts started the season in a promising fashion, but their form has seen somewhat of a slide in the past couple of weeks.
The Impact lost three of past five league games and they go into this having clinched just one point from last three MLS rounds.
Remi Garde will have a terrible headache coming face to face with the red-hot attacking line of Real Salt Lake’s, especially if we know Montreal revealed plenty of defensive holes in a tough 4-2 loss away at Los Angeles at the weekend.
Montreal Impact vs Real Salt Lake: Head-to-head
Montreal will rely heavily on the head to head tradition here.
The Impact won each of three home outings against Real Salt Lake with a goal difference of 10-4 in the process.
Both teams were on the scoresheet in all of past six head to head affairs.
Montreal Impact vs Real Salt Lake: Prediction
Remi Garde’s men are also winless in last two home clashes, none of which saw them score a goal. In spite of the aforementioned head to head record, the value has to be huge in backing the visitors not to lose at the odds of 2.00.
Real’s wingers Sebastian Saucedo and Jefferson Savarino were both on target in the weekend’s 2-1 win over reigning MLS Cup winners Atlanta United. They should have plenty of space to back up such fine spell of form and guide Mike Petke’s squad towards success here.
