Philadelphia Union vs Montreal Impact Prediction & Betting Odds
April 18, 2019
Montreal Impact are on the road at Philadelphia Union in the MLS at the Talen Energy Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
There’s just a single point separating these two Eastern Conference rivals going into this weekend’s game, with both franchises having made reasonable starts to the new MLS season.
The Union were on a run of three consecutive wins until they went down to a 2-0 loss at LA Galaxy last weekend, with both goals scored by the legendary veteran Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic. For their part, the Montreal Impact have now gone three games without conceding a goal.
The fact that Montreal Impact currently lie third in the Eastern Conference table is all the more impressive given that they started the season with six games on the road. They only started their campaign on home turf last Saturday afternoon, when they won all three points in a, perhaps somewhat fortuitous, 1-0 victory against Columbus Crew.
Montreal Impact have struggled for goals in the injury absence of Ignacio Piatti, so they will be hoping that this week’s acquisition of Panama international midfielder Omar Browne on loan until the end of the season (with an option to buy) will help their cause.
