The Revolution beat DC United 1-0 this Saturday in a match for week 25 of the United States – MLS 2022 tournament. The local team scored the only goal of the match in the 17th minute of the first half, through Carles Gil. The team will play against CF Montréal on the next day.
Montreal have put themselves in a much more favourable position than a year ago, sitting five points clear of fifth-place Orlando City and nine points above the playoff line.
Nancy will need to find solutions to their defensive issues right now as they lead the league in expected goals allowed yet have given up the fourth-most tallies in the East (36).
If they can solve those issues in the coming weeks, Montreal could be a team to watch out for, as they have a lot of quality in the attack and are making the most of their opportunities created.
Predictions & Tips: CF Montreal VS New England Revolution
CF Montreal possible starting lineup:
Breza; Waterman, Camacho, Miller; Lappalainen, Torres, Piette, Johnston; Mihailovic; Quioto, Toye
New England Revolution possible starting lineup:
Johnson; Gray, Martins, Callens, Amundsen; Rodriguez, Pereira, Acevedo; Moralez, Magno; Heber
If you are going off sheer name recognition and reputation, no Castellanos should make the Montreal backline feel a lot better about themselves, but the fact is that New England have quality players all over the field who can win matches.
Defensively speaking, Montreal still have not sorted out their issues, and we expect the quality of the reigning champs will be enough to earn them another three points.
