Our prediction for this MLS match:
Montreal will be looking to build on a 3-2 win over Toronto when they take on New England Revolution on Sunday morning. The Canadians looked sharp in front of goal at the weekend and they are likely to stick to their attacking style of play against the Revs. Jules-Anthony Vilsaint has joined Rommel Quioto in the recovery room, with Chinonso Offor likely to replace the Canada international in the starting XI.
The Revs, on the other hand, aim to recover from the League Cup defeats to Queretaro. New England, though, are not regarded as good travellers and that is the main reason why we are going to put our money on the home side. In their last meeting at Saputo Stadium Montreal rolled over New England 4-0, which is yet another reason why home win should be considered. The likes of Kessler, Borrero, McNamara, Gil, and Maciel are injured for the visitors.
Highlighted Team (New England Revolution):
Unlike famous NFL club New England Patriots, the Revolution have yet to win the domestic trophy. New England participated five times in the MLS Cup final, but they were more than fortunate not to lift the silverware. The Revs played their last final in 2014, with the team losing to LA Galaxy in the title game at StubHub Center. New England Revolution, though, clinched the North American SuperLiga trophy in 2008 and that is considered as the club’s biggest success.
It has to be noted that the Revs defeated Houston Dynamo on penalties in the final of the tournament. New England Revolution were founded in 1994 and Gillette Stadium is the home ground of the club. Legendary defender Alexi Lalas played for the Revolution (1996-1997) and he scored three goals for the Gillette Stadium outfit. Fellow USA ace Clint Dempsey was part of the team as well and you should know that he netted 25 goals in 71 league appearances for the club.
