Our prediction for this MLS match:
New England Revolution and Montreal Impact face each other in a midweek fixture at Gillette Stadium. New England head into the match following a goalless draw with New York City where they failed to turn their dominance into goals. The Revs aim to stay in the playoffs berth, and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-minded approach in Wednesday’s football match.
Montreal Impact, on the other hand, suffered a dip in form, with the team losing to both Vancouver Whitecaps and Philadelphia Union in the previous two league fixtures. The Canadians have been struggling at the back of late, and given New England’s display in the goalless draw with New York City, home win should be considered. The likes of Gil and Caicedo are sidelined with injury for the hosts, while Ballou, Choiniere, and Saba are out of contention for the visitors. Maximiliano Urruti is rated doubtful, while Romell Quioto is banned.
Highlighted Player (Antonio Delamea Mlinar):
Antonio Delamea Mlinar is a Slovenian footballer who plays for New England Revolution in MLS. Milnar was born in Celje, Slovenia on 10 June, 1991 and his main position is centre back. The New England Revolution defender played for the likes of Celje, Sampion, Aluminij and Interblock during his youth career and he signed his first professional contract with Interblock senior team.
Mlinar scored one goal in 23 league appearances for “the Gamblers” from 2008 to 2011 and in 2011 he joined Slovenian giants Olimpija Ljubljana. He played an important role in the capital club for seven years, but in 2017 he decided to take a step forward in his career.
Mlinar signed a deal with New England Revolution in January, 2017 and he has been playing for the Revs ever since. He made his debut for the Slovenia national team against Poland in November, 2016, replacing Miral Samardzic in the second half of the match.
Highlighted Team (Montreal Impact):
Montreal Impact is a Canadian soccer team, but they compete in Major League Soccer. The Impact 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 Impact 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 Impact won their third domestic trophy in 2014, with the team beating Toronto FC in the final of the tournament. Montreal Impact play their home matches in blue and black shirts and black shorts, while the colour of their away kit is white.
