Montreal Impact vs New York City FC Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Montreal Impact were unable to build on the mighty win over Toronto, as they lost 2-0 against Atlanta United at the Mercedes Benz stadium. Hector Villalba came up with the first goal with a thunderous 28th minute strike which provided the game’s opening goal. Even though Hugo Almiron’s injury setback did affect the home team, Montreal conceded in the second half to Jeff Larentowicz. New York City were able to get a 1-1 draw with Houston Dynamo, as they lost further ground on the chasing pack. Maximiliano Moralez gave the first goal after just six minutes, but Houston Dynamo’s quick free kick led to the equaliser in the 16th minute. Both teams had several other opportunities to come up with the winner. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Even though Montreal Impact have home advantage, they come into this game after having lost both home matches against New York City. Mauro Biello’s team have also lost three consecutive matches at the Stade Saputo. Even though New York City are not strong on the road, they came in with a good performance during the weekend against Houston Dynamo. Montreal Impact, meanwhile, looked very mediocre against Atlanta. I would go with a win for New York City.

New York City were good going forward against Houston Dynamo, and the club has scored in five out of the last six away matches. Montreal Impact have not scored in just one of the last eight games. The recent meetings between these two clubs have seen both teams score. Hence, I would opt with both teams to score in the game.

New York City win – 11/4

Both teams to score – 1/2

Montreal Impact saw over 1.5 goals in 6 out of their last 7 games played against New York City FC

New York City FC scored over 1.5 goals in 8 out of their last 10 games played

Montreal Impact Preview

The derby against Toronto appeared to provide Montreal Impact with some comfort during the midweek games, but the return to losing ways against Atlanta United means that all is not well within Mauro Biello’s team. Montreal looked short of ideas and the defeat could not have come at a worse time for the club. Montreal are just three points behind New York Red Bulls, but their rivals have the opportunity to pull ahead and open up a six-point advantage due to a game in hand. The recent form has been extremely poor for the club, but Ignacio Piatti has been one of the few positives for the club over the campaign.

Montreal Impact Team News

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

New York City FC Preview

New York City are in serious danger of dropping out of the top two places of the Eastern conference as a result of rivals closing within three points. Atlanta United have played a game fewer than New York City and are also only three points behind. If Atlanta win their game in hand, they could leapfrog New York City into the top two places. Patrick Vieira will be keen on qualifying automatically for the play-offs, but the club’s form has dipped in recent weeks. David Villa has been a major source of the goals for City after scoring 19 so far.

New York City FC Team News

Miguel Camargo (hip), Maxime Chanot (hernia), Yangel Herrera (groin), Ethan White (calf), and Mikey Lopez (foot) are the players missing from the squad due to injuries.
