Colorado Rapids vs Montreal Impact Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Colorado Rapids are now out of the MLS 2017 play-off picture after a 2-0 loss against FC Dallas. A poor away performance from the Rapids saw them concede early goals, as Maynor Figueroa and Roland Lamah were able to score inside the opening 10 minutes. Montreal Impact fell to a 1-0 home defeat against New York City. Jack Harrison came up with the only goal in the 29th minute. It could have been a heavy defeat for Montreal had it not been for goalkeeper Evan Bush. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

This game witnesses two teams coming on the back of a poor run of form. Colorado may have come in with a very poor performance against Dallas in the recent match, but home comfort is likely to see the club do much better. Colorado have suffered just two defeats in the last five games at home. Even though Montreal Impact have managed some key away victories – against Toronto and Philadelphia, I do not see Montreal getting more than a point from this game. I would go with a draw. Colorado’s defence has been among the weakest with 46 goals conceded. Montreal Impact have an even worse record, as they have conceded 52 goals. The weaknesses at the back for both clubs is likely to result in this game witnessing both teams scoring at least a goal.

Colorado Rapids Preview

Colorado Rapids are now ruled out of the MLS 2017 play-offs. The club will now be hoping to end the campaign on a high and possibly make significant additions to the squad during the off-season. The forward positions will be one of the areas to strengthen for Colorado Rapids. The recent retirement of Kevin Doyle coupled with the club’s poor return of just 27 league goals in 30 games are some of the factors that further enhance the need for the same. After the departure of Pablo Mastroeni, Steve Cooke has been placed on an interim basis. The club will also be taking a decision on a permanent appointment. Dominique Badji is the leading scorer for Colorado but he is yet to enter into double figures for the campaign.

Colorado Rapids Team News

Colorado Rapids do not have any injuries or suspensions coming into the game.

Montreal Impact Preview

The play-off aspirations for Montreal Impact are still alive, as the club are only four points behind New York Red Bulls with three games left in the campaign. Even though New York have the possibility of stretching this lead to a mammoth seven points, it still does not mathematically rule out Montreal. Yet, the club’s recent run of form is not a sign that they would finish in the MLS 2017 play-offs, as they have managed only one win in the last seven league matches. The poor form has been running even with the club possessing one of the top scorers in the division – Ignacio Piatti. The midfielder has 17 league goals for the season.

Ambroise Oyongo (knee) is the only player on the sidelines for Montreal Impact.
