Here is our betting preview as Montreal Impact welcome New England Revolution on 2nd/07/2016 to the Stade Saputo. We will bring you all the latest team news along with the match stats and bet predictions. Montreal Impact lost out on valuable points as they couldn’t hold on to their lead and ended up drawing their fixture against Sporting Kansas City. New England Revolution travelled to DC United but left empty handed as they were defeated by two first-half goals in their last League encounter.
High expectations were on Montreal Impact as they took on Sporting Kansas City in their last league encounter, however, despite taking the lead twice in the game they were unable to hold on and ended up sharing the points on offer. Lucas Ontivero opened the scoring in the sixteenth minute, but five minutes later Sporting Kansas levelled matters as Dom Dwyer hit home to equalise. Montreal was awarded a Penalty Kick in the thirty-ninth minute which Ignacio Piatti took with ease to give Montreal the lead at half time. The second half Sporting Kansas again levelled the game as Dom Dwyer netted his second of the match and what ended up being the last goal of the match. Montreal has won the last two head to head fixtures against their next opponent New England Revolution and should go to into this game with high expectations.
New England Revolution faced DC United, a team in the mid-table, knowing a win would lift them above their opposition in the league table. However, things didn’t go to plan. Lamar Neagle opened the scoring for DC in the twentieth minute and then set up fellow teammate Sean Franklin just seven minutes later as Franklin punished weak defending. Now New England faces Montreal Impact, a game they know will be a tough encounter. In their last four head to head fixtures New England has failed to come away with a win, can this next fixture be a different story for New England?
Montreal Impact is missing Andres Romero (torn ACL), Donny Toia (hamstring injury), Marco Donadel (right ankle injury) and Calum Mallace (foot injury).
New England Revolution
New England Revolution is without Charlie Davies (right abductor strain), Gershon Koffie (right knee sprain), Donnie Smith (right hamstring strain), Femi Hollinger-Janzen (right hamstring strain) and Darrius Barnes (right hip strain). Gershon Koffie has four Yellow Cards to his name.
Montreal Impact have been the most consistent out of the two and should have enough to take all three points away in this fixture.
