Montreal vs Charlotte
USA – MLS
Date: Sunday, 26 June 2022
Kick-off at 0:30 UK / 1:30 CET
Venue: Saputo Stadium.
Gameweek 16 of Major League Soccer is being scheduled in Eastern Conference as Montreal play host to Charlotte where both these sides are separated by just 3 points. These two sides will be seen locking horns at Saputo Stadium, this Sunday.
Montreal is at the 5th spot on the standing with 23 points from 15 games. They won 7 times in the league while drew twice and lost on 6 other occasions. The hosts have seen netting frequently but they tend to concede more of the same which hints that some defensive adjustments is needed.
The home side lost by 0-1 to Austin FC in their previous MLS fixture. They have lost thrice of their last 5 games played across various competitions. But they remain as a force to reckon with at home schedules.
On the other hand, Charlotte resides at the 7th position on the table with 20 points. Of the 16 matches played, they won 6 times in the league while drew twice and lost on 8 other occasions. The visitors are more of a mixed form recently, with the side winning and losing games in an uneven manner.
In their previous fixture, Charlotte drew by 1-1 to Columbus Crew. That draw on Sunday ensured interim head coach Christian Lattanzio remained unbeaten after two games following the sacking of Miguel Angel Ramirez. The point was their second-ever on the road, keeping them three behind Montreal.

Montreal vs Charlotte Prediction
Montreal has been average at home this season, winning 4 out of the 7 games played at Saputo Stadium. But they have won against this rival in the reverse fixture by 2-0 on last month.
Meanwhile, Charlotte are without an away win since their last 3 games played on road. They are yet to secure a win on road in MLS this season, losing 6 of the 8 away fixtures. Moreover, they lost at home to this same opposition in the reverse fixture.
Considering their previous h2h stats and current form, we feel that a home win seems to be the realistic option.
