Our prediction for this MLS match:
New England Revolution and Montreal face each other at Gillette Stadium in what is expected to be an interesting MLS game. The Revs aim to overtake Cincinnati in top position, and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in Sunday’s encounter. All Latif Blessing, Ryan Spaulding, Thomas McNamara, Nacho Gil, Maciel, and Jacob Jackson are out of contention with injuries, while there are no suspended players in the home team.
The Canadian outfit, on the other hand, suffered an embarrassing 5-0 loss to Vancouver Whitecaps, and given their shaky defence, we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling New England’s party at Gillette Stadium. Defender Rudy Camacho is banned for the match, while all Samuel Piette, Jojea Kwizera, George Campbell, Matko Miljevic, and James Pantemis miss out with injuries for the visiting side. Both Zouhir and Corbo should be recalled to the starting XI.
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 (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.
