Our prediction for this MLS match:
Saputo Stadium will host Sunday’s MLS game between Montreal and New York City, the two teams who shared the spoils with Charlotte and Portland Timbers respectively at the weekend. The Canadian outfit have been in a fine form of late, with the team beating both Minnesota United and Nashville, while sharing the spoils Charlotte. Defender Zachary Brault-Guillard is on international duty with Canada, while both Rommel Quito and Samuel Piette are out of contention with injuries.
The Blue Pigeons, on the other hand, have drawn each of their last five league matches. New York City and Montreal seem to be evenly matched at the moment and, taking everything into account, we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw. Thiago Martins misses out with a knee injury, while fellow midfielder James Sands is representing USA at the 2023 Gold Cup finals.
Highlighted Player (Victor Wanyama):
Over the years Victory Wanyama has established himself as one of the best Kenyan footballers. Wanyama started his senior career at Belgian club Beerschot and after scoring 2 goals in 51 appearances in the league for de Ratten, he moved to Celtic in 2011.
The defensive midfielder, who is very strong in the tackle, decided to leave the Hoops in 2013, signing a deal with Premier League side Southampton for a fee of £12.5 million.During his spell at St. Mary’s Stadium Victory Wanyama established himself as a first-team regular at Southampton and thanks to his thrilling displays with the Saints, Tottenham Hotspur chiefs made a tempting offer for the Kenya international.
In 2016 Wanyama signed a four-year deal with the capital club and he has been playing for Spurs ever since. The Tottenham midfielder was born in Nairobi on June 25, 1991 and he made his international debut for the Kenya national team in a friendly against Nigeria in May, 2007.
Highlighted Team (New York City):
New York City are an American soccer club and they have been competing in Major League Soccer since 2015. The Pigeons play their home games at Yankee Stadium and they are the second club in New York after the New York Red Bulls.
Famous Arsenal player Patrick Vieira took over the reins in January, 2016 and he helped the team finish the season in second place in the Eastern Conference. However, they were totally outclassed by Toronto FC (0-7 on aggregate) in the conference semifinals.
New York City chiefs have been pumping up a lot of money into the squad ever since the team began play in MLS and it has to be noted that the likes of Andrea Pirlo and David Villa played for the Pigeons in the 2016 season. New York City footballers wear sky blue shirts when playing at home, while the colour of the team’s away kit is dark blue.
Companies City Football Group (80%) and Yankee Global Enterprises own the club.
