Our prediction for this MLS match:
Bank of America Stadium will host Sunday’s MLS game between Charlotte and Montreal, the two teams who proved their worth in their last league fixtures. Charlotte defeated Inter Miami thanks to Andre Shinyashiki’s goal, and the 24-year-old forward is widely expected to return to the starting XI. All Adam Armour, Chris Hegardt, and Vinicius Mello are injured for the home side.
The Canadian outfit, on the other hand, rolled over Orlando City 4-1 to climb to third place in the Eastern Conference. Since Montreal have been impressive in front of goal of late, we believe that there is a big value in betting on both teams to score. Both Bjorn Johnsen and Mason Toye are out of contention with injuries, but there are no suspended players in the away side. It has to be noted that the two teams meet for the first time ever in the Major League Soccer.
Highlighted Player (Romell Quioto):
Romell Quioto is a pacey winger who plays for both Houston Dynamo and the Honduras national football team. Quioto was born in Balfate (Honduras) on August 9, 1991 and he played for Union Ajax during his youth career. The Honduras striker started his senior career at Vida and it has to be noted that he scored 20 goals in 77 appearances in the league for the club.
In 2012 he was sent on loan to Polish club Wisla Krakow, but he played no more than nine games for The White Star in Ekstraklasa. Romell Quioto then took a step forward in his career as he signed a contract with famous Honduras club Olimpia. After scoring 38 goals in 96 league fixtures for the capital club the 180-cm-tall attacker decided to taste MLS football.
Quioto moved to Houston Dynamo in December, 2016 and he has been playing for the Major League Soccer club ever since. Speaking of his international debut, Romell Quioto received his first call-up for Honduras on February 29, 2012 for a friendly game against Ecuador.
Highlighted Team (Montreal):
Montreal is a Canadian soccer team, but they compete in Major League Soccer. Montreal are a member of the Eastern Conference and they have been participating in the major league since 2012. Montreal welcome their opponents at Saputo Stadium and the capacity of the club’s home ground is 20.801.
The construction of the stadium cost CA$17 million and the venue was opened on May 18, 2008. The Saputo family invested $7.5 million in the construction of the stadium and, as a result, the venue was named Saputo Stadium. Montreal did remarkably well to make it to the CONCACAF Champions League final in the 2014/2015 season, but Mexican team America proved to be a big catch for the Canadian outfit in the title game.
Speaking of the Canadian championship, the Montreal won their third domestic trophy in 2014, with the team beating Toronto FC in the final of the tournament. Montreal play their home matches in blue and black shirts and black shorts, while the colour of their away kit is white.
