Montreal Impact vs Columbus Crew Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

Montreal Impact secured a first away win of the season after managing to beat DC United 1-0 at the RFK stadium. Jean Tabla scored the only goal of the game from just outside the box in the 13th minute. The home team were unable to provide a decisive touch in the game. Columbus Crew fell to a 2-1 defeat against one of the form teams in the division, Toronto FC. Columbus took the lead through Federico Higuain’s penalty in the 28th minute. Things seemed to go pretty well when Zach Steffen saved a penalty from Jozy Altidore just 10 minutes later. Yet, substitute Tosaint Ricketts scored twice in the last 10 minutes to secure a win for Toronto.

Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Montreal Impact are unbeaten in the last five games against Columbus Crew in the regular season. They have also managed four consecutive home wins over Columbus Crew, who have been able to score only one goal in the last four visits to the Stade Saputo. Their disappointing run of three defeats in the last four matches does not bode well ahead of this fresh away match. I would back Montreal Impact’s home form to have a bigger say, and help the team win.

Columbus Crew have not scored in the last two away matches. Montreal Impact are yet to keep a clean sheet at Stade Saputo this season, but they will take a lot of confidence from the clean sheet over DC United. I would back a Montreal Impact clean sheet.

Montreal Impact win – 21/20

Montreal Impact Preview

Montreal Impact would be delighted to get the first away win out of the way. It had been building up pressure on the team over the last few matches. Now, the club will be looking to build on a poor home record, which has seen them managed just one win in the three matches at the Stade Saputo. The club have strengthened the midfield with the signing of Blerim Dzemaili from Bologna, but there is a probability of coach Mauro Biello deciding to use the player from the bench to start with. Ignacio Piatti and Anthony Jackson-Hamel have scored three goals each.

Montreal Impact Team News

Shamit Shome (foot), Andres Romero (hamstring), Victor Cabrera (ankle), Anthony Jackson-Hamel (unknown), and Matteo Mancosu (thigh) are ruled out due to injury.

Columbus Crew Preview

Columbus Crew’s disappointing form took a turn for the worse after failing to hold on to a lead in the final 10 minutes of the game against Toronto. Columbus have now suffered three defeats in the last four games. Their away form also does not make for a good reading with three defeats in the four games. Things are only expected to get difficult for Columbus Crew, who face three consecutive away matches from this weekend. Ola Kamara is the club’s top scorer with six league goals.

Columbus Crew Team News

Gaston Sauro (surgery), Ben Swanson (ankle), and Artur (wrist) are ruled out. Brad Stuver (elbow) is rated as doubtful for the game.
