Our prediction for this MLS match:
Columbus Crew take on Montreal Impact at MAPFRE Stadium on Thursday morning. Columbus aim to cement top position in the Eastern Conference, and they should take advantage of Montreal’s poor form. Despite failing to find the net in the previous three league fixtures, USA attacker Gyasi Zardes will be the man to watch in the home team. The likes of Adi, Francis, Nagbe, and Wormgoor remains on the sidelines for the hosts.
The Canadian outfit, on the other hand, do not seem to be on the top of their game, with the team failing to win the previous five league fixtures. Considering that Montreal conceded 16 goals in total in the previous five MLS games, anything but a routine home win will be a major surprise. Defender Luis Binks returns from suspension, while the likes of Ballou, Choiniere, Okwonkwo, and Saba remain in the recovery room.
