Market: Montreal Impact win
Odds: 13/10 @ 888sport
Looking to make it back-to-back victories against Vancouver over the past few days, Montreal will make the trip to the BC Place Stadium in the early hours of Thursday morning.
Starting with the hosts, putting in what was another defensive horror show over the weekend and hit with a 4-2 drumming away at the Impact on Sunday, it is no surprise to many around the MLS that Vancouver are already battling it out at the foot of the Western Conference. Already seen as a top pick to once again lift the wooden spoon this season, Marc Dos Santos’s men have lost five of their last six matchups across all competitions and hold what is a worrying reputation for their rather glaring issues at the back. Marking their return to regular-season duties with a thumping 3-0 defeat at the hands of Toronto last month, there is no doubt that a struggling Vancouver should be in for another tough test the BC Place Stadium in the early hours of Thursday morning.
As for the visitors, while Montreal might have shown some inconsistencies since making a return to Eastern Conference duties last month, Thierry Henry’s men still find themselves sat in the play-off spots and they will undoubtedly be boosted by their thumping display over the weekend. Now landing back-to-back victories away from the Stade Saputo and losing just a single MLS contest on their travels this season, the former Arsenal icon will also be boosted by what is a rampant record against the midweek hosts. Including their 4-2 victory over Vancouver last time out, Montreal have won each of their last three straight meetings against the Western Conference strugglers and we’re backing a similar outcome this week.
