Montreal Impact vs Toronto FC
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Friday, 17 July 2020
Kick-off at 01:00 UK/ 02:00 CET
Venue: ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex.
The Reds were incredibly unlucky to not have posted a win in their opener. They had raced to a 2-0 lead against DC United, and looked set for the three points. However, they conceded two goals in the final six minutes of the game. In fact, the equalizer had come in the 90+1st minute.
They will be desperate to make amends for that dropped two points. Considering that they are taking on Thierry Henry’s men, who have lost their opener, as well as had finished in the bottom tier of the Eastern Conference in 2019 – expect a Toronto win this Friday.
Montreal Impact vs Toronto: Head-to-head (h2h)
- The Reds had recorded eight of the former twelve wins.
- They had also won three of the last four encounters.
- They had scored two or more goals in two of the former four games.
- Ten of the previous fifteen match-ups had goals from both teams.
Montreal Impact vs Toronto: Prediction
Henry’s men were winless in nine of their last ten overall games, and in the process, they had also gone through a four-match losing run. Moreover, they had also conceded two or more goals in four of their last seven fixtures.
They had also lost their opener in the current tournament, and are yet to score their first goal. Also note that they had finished in the bottom tier of the Eastern Conference in 2019 MLS.
On the other hand, their counterparts were one of the toppers in the East in 2019, and at present are unbeaten in their last four games. In fact, since September of 2019, they have lost just once.
They had also won three of the previous four h2h clashes against this rival, and are desperate for a win this weekend, as they bottled a two-goal lead the last match-day due to complacency.
As such, count on Toronto to post the three points against Montreal at the ESPN Complex.
