Our football match prediction:
Orlando City were not into action at the weekend and they played out a goalless draw with Chicago Fire in their last league match. Coach Jason Kreis welcomes Brazilian ace Ricardo Kaka back to the starting line-up for Sunday’s football match against Montreal Impact, but it has to be noted that the likes of Nocerino and Rafael Ramos are going to miss the game through suspension. However, seeing that Orlando City are tough to beat at home, we believe that there is a certain value in betting on Kaka and his teammates. Montreal Impact recorded only one win in seven away games this season and we predict that the Canadians are going to return home empty-handed. In their last meeting at Camping World Stadium Montreal emerged triumphant, but we are tempted to put our money on the Lions this time out as they have been raising their form week by week.
Highligted Player (Ricardo Kaka):
Ricardo Kaka is regarded as one of the most significant MLS stars. The Brazilian ace spent six seasons (2003/2009) at Stadio San Siro with Milan and he scored 70 goals in 193 league appearances for the Rossoneri. In 2007 he helped the Serie A giants beat Liverpool in the Champions League final. Real Madrid chiefs were eager to sign Kaka and they managed to bring him to Estadio Santiago Bernabeu on June 30, 2009. The Brazil international, though, was playing below expectations for Real Madrid and due to the lack of first-team football he decided to return to Milan in 2013. Kaka scored seven goals in 30 league appearances in his second spell with the Rossoneri and in 2014 he moved to MLS, signing a contract with Orlando City. Speaking of his international career, the Orlando City superstar clinched the FIFA World Cup trophy with Brazil in 2002. It has to be noted that Kaka was named FIFA World Player of the Year in 2007.
Highlighted Team (Montreal Impact):
Montreal Impact are 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.
