Montreal Impact vs San Jose Earthquakes
Major League Soccer
Date: Sunday 15th July 2018
Kick off at 0:00 UK/ 01:00 CET
Venue: Saputo Stadium (Montreal).

Montreal Impact have the last place in the playoff positions and it’s very close, so a draw or loss could easily see them fall out of the top six with Philadelphia Union and Chicago Fire hot in pursuit.

A recent loss over New York City stopped a superb 4 game winning streak that saw them scored 9 goals in those games and look like championship material.

However the reality is that they are 16 points behind leaders Atlanta United and this campaign is all about finishing in the playoff positions. They have won their last 4 games in a row while playing at home.

San Jose Earthquakes are in desperate trouble as they are bottom of the Western conference with 12 points.

From 18 games this season they have won just 2 and have gained just 3 points from their last 15 available. They have lost 10 games so far and are conceding on average 2 goals a game.

On the other hand, San Jose have won just once from the 10 away games all season, losing 6 and drawing 3.
