Montreal Impact vs Toronto FC
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Saturday, 29 August 2020
Kick-off at 01:00 UK/ 02:00 CET
Venue: Saputo Stadium.
Both these teams were drawn in the same group in the ‘MLS is Back’ tournament, and the Reds had managed to top the standings, while their counterparts had to be content with a third-place finish.
Greg Vanney’s men have been on a roll for quite some time now. They had finished fourth in the East in the 2019 edition of the league, while Thierry Henry’s men could not even make it into the playoffs.
On top of that, the Reds also do have a great h2h record lately against this opponent.
Considering all these factors, expect a winning performance from Toronto this weekend.
Montreal Impact vs Toronto: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Vanney’s men had won four of the previous five fixtures.
- They had won the latest clash between the two, with a 3-4 scoreline.
- It’s been two years since they have lost a league game against this rival.
- They have also scored two or more goals in five of the preceding nine games on the road.
Montreal Impact vs Toronto: Prediction
Henry’s men were winless in 11 of their previous 14 overall match-ups, and in fact have secured a total of just three wins since October of 2019. And at home, they have won just twice in the past ten-month period.
Meanwhile, Vanney’s men have lost just once since November of 2019, and just twice in the past 12-month period.
And on the road, their last defeat in a league game had come in November, and that too against reigning champions Seattle Sounders.
Going on, they had also won four of the former five h2h clashes between the two, and had scored a total of four goals in their latest meeting alone.
Considering these observations, expect Toronto to have an upper hand this weekend.
