Montreal Impact vs Seattle Sounders FC Match Prediction

By Charlotte Louise Bushell

After reaching the 2016 MLS Conference finals, Montreal Impact would have been disappointed to start the 2017 MLS season with a 1-0 loss against San Jose Earthquakes. Anibal Godoy scored in the 17th minute to hand an early setback for the away team. Montreal Impact’s hopes of a comeback were dashed in the 66th minute when Hassoun Camara was sent-off for a second bookable offence. Defending MLS Cup champions Seattle Sounders had an even bigger setback after losing 2-1 to Houston Dynamo in the opening match. Erick Torres and Romell Quioto provided first-half goals, and a second-half goal from Clint Dempsey was not enough for Seattle Sounders.

Betting Predictions and Tips

When it comes to games in Canada, Montreal Impact have had the better of recent games against Seattle Sounders. The home form was a major factor in the club’s push for an MLS Cup title last season. They would welcome a Seattle Sounders team, who are not good at travelling. An opening day loss against Houston Dynamo saw the team experience more negatives than positives. Due to a run of two wins in three home games and a better home record, I would consider backing Montreal Impact for a win.

This has been a low-scoring encounter with the last four meetings producing less than 2.5 goals. Clint Dempsey has opened his account for the season, but he has faced Montreal Impact only once in his career. I would back this game to witness under 2.5 goals.

Montreal Impact win – 5/4

Total goals under 2.5 – 17/20

 

Montreal Impact Preview

Home form was a decisive factor in Montreal Impact almost reaching the MLS Cup finals last season. The upcoming game with Seattle Sounders will be played at the Stade Olympique, an indoor stadium, due to adverse weather conditions. Argentine midfielder Ignacio Piatti was instrumental in Montreal Impact’s successes last season. He managed 17 goals and five assists in 32 games, while scoring four more goals and creating two assists in the play-offs. The absence of Didier Drogba, who scored 11 goals and created six last season, is a major blow for Montreal Impact.

Seattle Sounders Preview

Seattle Sounders manager Brian Schmetzer claimed that the 2-1 loss against Houston Dynamo provided valuable lessons. Yet, it was not surprising to see the team suffer a defeat on the road. Seattle Sounders only had four away wins last season. Clint Dempsey is a major positive for the team, as the US International continued where he left off last season – by scoring a goal. Sounders left back Joevin Jones was one of the few positives for the team in the opening match against Houston. He has been in impressive form even from pre-season.
