Our prediction for this MLS match:
Buoyed by a hard-fought 1-0 win over New York Red Bulls, New England Revolution will be looking to give fans yet another reason for celebration when they welcome Montreal Impact at their Gillette Stadium. The Revs continue with their habit of producing much better showings at home than on the travels and they are surely eager to record their third home win of the season.
New England, though, have been struggling in front of goal at the start of the season, therefore, we believe that under 2.5 goals will be scored in Thursday’s football game. Montreal, on the other hand, suffered a heavy 3-0 loss to Philadelphia at the weekend, with the team extending their goalless run on the road to three games. A low-scoring affair is on the cards at Gillette Stadium and we believe that there is a big value in betting on draw.
Highlighted Player (Diego Fagúndez):
Born on February 14, 1995 in Montevideo, Uruguay, Diego Fagundez is a 173-cm tall footballer, who plays for New England Revolution as an attacking midfielder. After spending his youth career at the likes of Leominster Youth Soccer, Greater Boston Bolts and New England Revolution, he continued playing for the Revs in MLS.
Diego Fagundez is nowadays considered one of the best New England players and it has to be noted that he scored nine goals in the 2018 season, while providing eight assists for his teammates. The Uruguayan footballer has yet to make his debut for the senior national team, but he has five caps for the Uruguay U20 team. Diego Fagundez represented la Celeste at the 2015 South American Youth Championship.
Diego Fagundez’s main position is left winger, but he is capable of playing as both centre-forward and second striker as well. His preferred foot is right and his contract with New England Revolution should expire on December 31, 2019.
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.
