Montreal Impact vs Toronto FC
USA – Major League Soccer
Date: Thursday, 10 September 2020
Kick-off at 01:00 UK/ 02:00 CET
Venue: Saputo Stadium.
The Reds have been a top tier contender in the East in the past several seasons, and have been far more consistent than their counterparts.
Meanwhile, Thierry Henry’s men are usual suspects to end up in the bottom tier in the same conference, and more importantly, they have a lopsided h2h history against this opponent over the years. Greg Vanney’s men have come out on top in most of the recent h2h clashes.
In fact, in the just-concluded ‘MLS is Back’ tournament, both teams were included in the same group, and while the Reds topped the standings, their opposite number had to settle for a third-place finish.
For the reasons, expect Toronto to have an upper hand this Thursday at the Saputo Stadium.
Montreal Impact vs Toronto: Head-to-head (h2h)
- Ten of the former fifteen overall wins had gone to Vanney’s men.
- They had won in the Group Stage fixture of the ‘MLS is Back’ tournament, and that too by scoring four goals against this opponent.
- The guests are on a two-game winning run at this stadium in league meetings.
- The last time these two locked horns at this ground, the visitors won 0-1.
Montreal Impact vs Toronto: Prediction
The Reds were unbeaten in nine of their last twelve overall fixtures. In fact, they have lost just thrice in total in the past nine months, and in the last twelve-month period, they have experienced defeat just twice on the road.
On the other hand, their opposite number had lost five of their former eight overall games, and they were winless in 12 of their preceding 16 match-ups as well.
Moreover, they have won just twice at home in the preceding eleven months, and importantly, they have failed to perform against this rival in majority of h2h clashes recently. In fact, they lost one of the most important fixtures of their season against this team by conceding four goals – just one month back.
Taking into consideration these stats, expect Toronto to be the better team on the pitch this Thursday.
