Our prediction for this MLS match:
Toronto will look to put an end to their dreadful eight-game losing run in the Major League Soccer when they face Montreal in the Canadian derby. The Reds are low on confidence ahead of the visit of Montreal and given their poor defensive display in a 5-0 League Cup defeat to New York City, we do not believe that home win should be considered. To make things even worse for the home side, key player Lorenzo Insigne misses out with injury.
The visitors, on the other hand, aim to recover from the League Cup defeat to DC United. Montreal have a chance to climb to the playoffs berth and we predict that they will take advantage of the current situation in Toronto’s dressing room. Fit-again forward Lassi Lappalainen is pushing for a start, while fellow attacker Rommel Quioto has yet to recover from a hamstring problem.
