Montreal Impact vs Real Salt Lake Match Prediction

By Richard McTiernan

Montreal Impact’s brilliant home form continued with a 3-0 win over Chicago Fire. Ignacio Piatti has been in excellent form in recent weeks, and he opened the scoring after just six minutes. A Matteo Mancosu penalty and a brilliant long-range effort from Piatti secured three points for Montreal Impact. Real Salt Lake were able to extend their unbeaten run to five league matches after a 1-0 victory over DC United. Despite the home team creating multiple chances, it was Luis Silva who scored the opening goal in the 64th minute. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The away team is yet to win this fixture in five attempts, as the home team has been able to win four of the last five. Real Salt Lake and Montreal Impact have two wins apiece. Montreal come into the match on the back of six wins in the last seven home games. It is an imperious form which makes Real Salt Lake’s three-game winning run on the road look pale. I would go with a win for Montreal Impact. Ignacio Piatti is on a strong run of form after scoring four goals in the last three. He has scored in each of the last three MLS games. Even though Piatti has not scored in his two appearances against Real Salt Lake, he is a strong candidate to score anytime.

Montreal Impact win – 10/11

Ignacio Piatti to score anytime – 5/4

Montreal Impact Preview

Montreal Impact have been able to close in on the top six places of the Eastern conference after a run of three consecutive league victories, while the form looks even better when it comes to home games. Mauro Biello’s men have managed six wins in the last seven games at the Stade Saputo. The club’s biggest issues have been on the road, but the team recently ended a five-game winless run with a victory over Philadelphia Union at the Talen Energy Stadium. Ignacio Piatti has been the key player for Montreal Impact in this run. He is also the club’s top scorer with 12 league goals.

Montreal Impact Team News

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

Real Salt Lake Preview

The recent run of five unbeaten in MLS games has helped Real Salt Lake move up to eighth in the Western Conference table. The club’s long-standing problems on the road have suddenly disappeared in the last few weeks, as they have been able to pick up three consecutive away wins. The form at the Rio Tinto stadium now appears to be the problem with no wins in the last four. Real Salt Lake have one of the poorest defences in the 2017 MLS table after conceding 44. However there has been a substantial improvement on this front in recent matches after letting in only six in the last six games. Yura Movsisyan and Joao Plata are the top scorers with six goals each.

Real Salt Lake Team News

Chad Barrett (knee), Jordan Allen (knee), Matt Van Oekel (malleolar), Ricardo Velazco (ankle), and Omar Holness (knee) are the players unavailable for Real Salt Lake.
