Our prediction for this MLS match:
New York City will be looking to bounce back from a 4-0 loss to Toronto when they host Montreal Impact at their Yankee Stadium on Saturday evening. Domenec Torrent’s troops are eyeing their first win of the season and we are positive that they are going to leave their hearts on the field against the Canadian outfit. Seeing that Montreal experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 7-1 loss to Sporting Kansas City, we believe that there is a big value in betting on the hosts.
The Canadians conceded nine goals in previous two away games and, taking everything into account, we do not believe that they are capable of spoiling New York City’s party at Yankee Stadium. In their last meeting at Yankee Stadium New York City recorded a 3-0 win over Montreal Impact.
Highlighted Player (Alexandru Mitrita):
Alexandru Mitrita is a Romanian footballer who is well known for his height. The 199-cm attacking midfielder, who is capable of playing as a winger as well, was born in Craiova on February 8, 1995 and he started his youth career at Turnu Severin. In 2012 he moved to fellow Romanian club Viitorul Constanta and in 2015 he signed a deal with Italian side Pescara. After scoring 2 goals in 34 appearances for the Dolphins, he returned to Romania, signing a contract with Universitatea Craiova. Alexandru Mitrita was on New York City’s radar during the 2017/2018 season and seeing that he scored 18 goals in the national championship, the chiefs of the MLS club decided to sign him in 2019. The Romanian footballer made his Major League Soccer debut in a 2-2 draw with Orlando City, but he failed to find the net. Alexandru Mitrita’s preferred foot is right, but he often plays as a left winger.
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.
