Montreal Impact vs Seattle Sounders: Prediction
Montreal are a difficult home team to negotiate, especially with their artificial playing surface. Also, their playing style is quite similar to Huston Dynamo, who just got the better of Seattle by a 2-1 margin. However, the visitors should have already figured this out and we can expect a tight clash on Saturday evening.
The Canadians are expected to take all three points as they will be on the road for the next three rounds. While the Sounders will be keen to avoid another defeat under difficult playing conditions. Expect this to end in nothing other than a scored draw.
