Philadelphia Union vs Montreal Impact Match Prediction

By Bharath Ramm R

Philadelphia Union were able to capitalise on their home form and register a 3-1 win over FC Dallas last weekend. Charles Sapong came up with the opening goal after 17 minutes with a simple tap in, while the lead was doubled just five minutes later through Ilsinho. Sapong added a second in the 68th minute, while Michael Barrios was able to pull one back for Dallas. Montreal Impact took advantage of Orlando City’s poor form to register a 2-1 comeback win over the strugglers. Cyle Larin scored the opening goal in the 12 minute, but a penalty from Ignacio Piatti and Anthony Jackson-Hamel’s late goal helped Montreal overcome back-to-back losses. Here we have our SBAT match preview with all the best predictions, betting tips and match stats.

Betting Tips and Predictions

The Union have a poor record in this fixture after going winless in the last five. Montreal Impact have been able to pick up two wins in these five games. Incredibly, five of the last six home games for Philadelphia against Montreal has been a stalemate. This time around, though, I would go with a win for Philadelphia considering their four-game winning run at home coupled with Montreal’s away blues. All of the recent five games between the Union and Montreal has witnessed both teams scoring at least a goal. Montreal have failed to score only once in the last five away games, while the Union have kept just one clean sheet in the last five. I would go with both teams to score.

Philadelphia Union win – 17/20

Both teams to score – 4/7

Philadelphia Union Preview

Away matches have been the Achilles heel for Philadelphia Union, as the record of three defeats in the last five league matches can be directly attributed to the poor form on the road. The Union have picked up only one win in the 11 away games. This form is in complete contrast to their results at home, as the team has been able to pick up seven wins in 12 games. It includes a run of four consecutive wins. The Union have been defensively solid at home and have conceded just three goals in the last five, while keeping three clean sheets. Charles Sapong leads the Union goal scoring charts with 12 league goals.

Philadelphia Union Team News

Manager Jim Curtin will be without Andre Blake (hand) and Maurice Edu (broken tibia and fibula) due to injuries.

Montreal Impact Preview

Montreal Impact were able to register a return to winning ways by capitalising on the poor form of Orlando City. The back-to-back losses against FC Dallas and New York Red Bulls threatened to destroy the momentum build-up in recent weeks through wins over the likes of Philadelphia Union. Montreal also suffer from poor form on the road, and the club has been able to register just one win on their travels. There have been no wins in the last five away games, although manager Mauro Biello will be happy with his team scoring in four of these five games. Ignacio Piatti is the top scorer at the club with nine league goals this season.

Montreal Impact Team News

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