Our Prediction:

Montreal Impact will win

Montreal Impact – DC Utd Match Prediction | 27-08-2019 19:30

Stade Saputo will host Sundays football game between Montreal Impact and DC United. The Canadian outfit do not seem to be on top of their game ahead of the visit of the capital club and given their shaky defence, we do not believe that there is a big value in betting on Wilmer Cabreras men this time out. Montreal Impact attacking trio Bojan, Urruti and Jackson-Hamel have netted six goals in total in the 2019 MLS season, which is yet another reason why home win should not be considered.

However, with Piatti in their side the Canadians are more than capable of beating any of the MLS sides, with the veteran Argentine attacking midfielder both Montreals best source of goals and their leading provider of assists. This season Piatti has contributed 11 league goals in 21 appearances and picked up 8 assists. This is the former Lecce mans fifth season with Montreal Impact and ever since his arrival he has been a consistent performer for the Canadian outfit.

Reason For Montreal Impact vs DC United Betting Tips

Despite the points and place difference difference between Montreal Impact and DC United heading into Sundays game, were expecting a very competitive game between the two clubs and have backed both teams to score. Montreal Impact have scored in four of their last six matches and conceded in four as well, while DC United have scored in five of their last six and not kept a single clean sheet during that period. In terms of a final score, were backing both teams to share the points via a 1-1 draw. Four of the last six encounters between Montreal and DC have witnessed both teams score, and with the form of both sides being identical we dont believe there will be a clean sheet on show this weekend.

To add insult to injury, captain and leading scorer Wayne Rooney was sent off early in the second half, which means that DC will be without their talisman on Wednesday evening. DC United went into Saturdays home game against LAFC having won three and drawn one of their four MLS games this season, so its fair to say that they were thriving. However, their form and undoubted confidence didnt help much, as they lost by four goals to nil.

Moreover, they notched twice against Atlanta at home on the opening day of the season, posting 1.97 expected goals for, while they scored five against Real Salt Lake after that, clocking a mammoth 3.14 expected goals for. They failed to find the net last time out, but they still posted an encouraging 1.82 expected goals for. From an offensive point of view, DC have impressed during the early weeks of the season, especially in front of their own fans.

With two wins, one draw, and three defeats from their last six matches, DC United might still sit bottom of the Eastern Conference but they have three games in hand over nearest rivals Toronto and if they were to win all three games could move as high as eighth in the table. DCs biggest problem this season has been scoring goals, something they will hope to have addressed in the signing of Rooney who not only has a great scoring record, but also creates plenty of chances for his teammates.

Highlighted Player (Maximiliano Urruti):

DC United suffered a dip in form, but despite losing three consecutive games to the likes of Vancouver Whitecaps, New York Red Bulls and Philadelphia Union, Wayne Rooney and Co. DC United are more of a team Montreal Impact and seeing that the hosts have been struggling at the back of late, away win is on the horizon. remained in the play-offs berth in the Eastern Conference.

The capture of the former Manchester and Everton man could do the club lots of good in the close season, as there are bound to be plenty of quality players that would want to play with Rooney in the MLS. There can be no avoiding just how poor DC United has performed this season, but the introduction of former England captain Wayne Rooney has certainly given the rest of the club a boost in confidence and doubled the amount of league wins achieved by the club in under a month. This change in fortunes suggest DC United might just finish the season strongly, but even if they do the play-off places are a long way off.

Speaking of D.C. Andy Najar, Eddie Pope, Jaime Moreno, John Harkes, Ryan Nelsen, Christian Gomez, Nick Rimando, Richie Williams, Clyde Simms, Tony Sanneh, Marco Etcheverry and Santino Quaranta are some of the clubs most famous players. United fans, the club has four big supporters groups: La Norte, La Barra Brava, the Screaming Eagles and La Norte and the clubs mascot is Talon, the bald eagle.
