Montreal Impact will hope to utilise their home advantage to help bridge the gap to today’s opponents. The home side are currently 5 points behind Philadelphia Union.
These are busy days for the home team, as they were in action only four days ago in the Major League Soccer. That game was an away game at Vancouver Whitecaps, so at least Montreal are thankful to return home in this one. Game on!
Montreal Impact form and stats
3-0-4 (win-draw-lost) are the Major League Soccer numbers at home for Montreal Impact so far this season. Two defeats in a row at home hurts for Montreal Impact, their manager T. Henry and the supporters. There are certain expectations for improvement.
Montreal are hoping to put things right at home after a defeat in their previous match, the score 1-3 away versus Vancouver Whitecaps. A strong away win before that one, visiting Vancouver Whitecaps and winning 4-2.
The manager T. Henry will start preparations for the next game as soon this is finished, as the hosts are going to New England in only three days.
Montreal Impact has scored 9 league goals at home this season, in 7 matches. Montreal have conceded 9 in these home matches.
Philadelphia Union form and stats
The visitors are W2-D2-L2 on the road this term. That's in the Major League Soccer.
Philadelphia had fun at their own home (Red Bull Arena) last time out, beating New England 2-1. Anthony Fontana (2) scored. Prior to that result Philadelphia Union won their away game at New York RB. The scoreline was 3-0.
Anthony Fontana came off the bench to score the winning goal in the match against New England last time out, making the manager J. Curtin feel like a tactical genius. The end of the last match, against New England, was very satisfying as Anthony Fontana scored the winning goal deep into overtime.
There might be some complaints about the fixture list from the Philadelphia Union manager J. Curtin as the team has another away game coming up in only three days, this time against Cincinnati.
Scoring goals is the main ingredient in creating success in football, and not only at home. So far Philadelphia have scored 7 goals in 6 league games away. 6 goals have been conceded by Philadelphia in these games.
Head 2 HeadNumbers for the last ten meetings between these two teams are: five wins for Montreal, two draws and three wins for Philadelphia Union. Over 2,5 goals: seven times; under 2,5 goals: three games.
