Montreal Impact vs Portland Timbers Match Prediction

By Gary Gillles

Montreal Impact suffered a second consecutive home defeat, as they lost 3-2 to Columbus Crew. Justin Meram was the star of the show with a hat-trick. Meram’s brace inside 30 minutes provided Columbus with a solid advantage, but while Montreal Impact did well to equalise through Ignacio Piatti and Anthony Jackson-Hamel. Yet, Meram completed his hat-trick in injury time to inflict a second consecutive home defeat for Montreal Impact. Portland Timbers are winless in the last three games after a 1-1 draw with Atlanta United. Julian Gressel scored after the break to put the away team ahead, but Portland were level quickly through Liam Ridgewell. David Guzman struck the post in injury time, as Portland failed to win.

Betting Tips and Predictions

Portland Timbers have managed a win in their last two away games against Montreal Impact, who come on the back of back-to-back home defeats. Even though Portland have only managed a single win in the last four away games, they have come up against a strong opposition like Dallas and Columbus Crew. I would back Portland Timbers for a win. Even though Portland Timbers have averaged just a goal per game in the last five matches, they are up against a Montreal Impact team that has conceded eight goals in the last four matches. Portland have the ability to score when presented with chances, and I would back Portland Timbers to score over 1.5 goals.

Portland Timbers win – 2/1

Portland Timbers to score over 1.5 goals – 11/10

Montreal Impact Preview

Montreal Impact are once again struggling to find consistent performances and results. The team has managed just one win in the last four league matches. So far this campaign, they have only managed two wins in 10 league matches – a run that sees them bottom of the Eastern conference table. The club produced a strong second-half performance against Columbus Crew, but lack of tactical discipline allowed a late winner for the opposition. Home games represented the best possible option for Montreal to get wins, but they have now suffered back-to-back defeats at the Stade Saputo. On the road, Montreal have suffered just one defeat in the last five games.

Montreal Impact Team News

Andres Romero (muscle), Victor Cabrera (leg), Matteo Mancosu (hamstring), and Shamit Shome (foot) are the players on the sidelines for Montreal Impact.

Portland Timbers Preview

Portland Timbers’ excellent start to the campaign has been quickly forgotten with the club struggling for results. The club has managed just one win in last five MLS games. As a result, they have slipped behind the top two places of the Western Conference. The club appeared to possess a strong forward line spearheaded by Fanendo Adi, but they have now failed to score in two out of the last five games. Even home form has not come to the rescue in such difficult times, as Portland Timbers have only managed one win in the last four games at the Providence Park.

Portland Timbers Team News

Darlington Nagbe (muscle), Gbenga Arokoyo (Achilles tendon), Ben Zemanski (muscle), Chance Myers (muscle), and Jeff Attinella (muscle) are the players on the sidelines for manager Caleb Porter.
